The United States has come a long way in the regard to the issue of Race relations.. Yet the enduring legacy of racism and the white supremacist system continues to hunt America like the ghost of perpetual evil, ever-present in almost all facets of life.

Democrats also express more positive views of immigrants and the nation’s growing ethnic and racial diversity. On the other hand,  About seven-in-ten Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (71%) say white people get few or no advantages in society that black people do not have.

While I sympathize with Ukrainians fleeing war and constant attacks from Russia, as an American, I can no longer pretend not to understand the effects of these racist policies, attitudes, and actions that impact mostly African, and  Latinos immigrants and refugees. Let’s remove the vestiges of racism from our immigration laws once and for all,  and for once start to uphold the true value that we advocate for as a true Democratic society.
