There has been a deep rooted mentality in America in regaurds to racism, segregation, and equal rights. That in most communities these are never questioned, when in fact it's a right for all people. People of all walks of life have been fighting for their rights as Americans, their rights to speak, and more recently their rights have been ignored.
America's racist attitudes and actions have been boiling after the abolition of slavery, MLK and his peacfull protest, and every injunction since. More recently people have seen a rise in police related deaths of black men and women in America. So much so that riots have broken out followed by country wide protest demanding justice for those wronlgy killed and seeking action to stop it in the future.
