America has failed to deliver justice for the many who gave their lives for the Selma to Montgomery marches, and all they stood for. Martin Luther King, John Lewis, and thousands who faced down segregation,such as activists Jimmie Lee Jackson and ...

Yes. It's probably more polarized in the US than in any countries. It's a shame that women and black people suffer so much, since they are arguably the greatest contributors to any society.

A black female President would be something to celebrate.

This article is very disheartening. Not only because of the many examples it gives of areas where racial justice has failed to make progress, but mostly because it leaves me with the idea that America not only hasn't progressed, it is regressing of late. The hoods have come off and blatant racism is out in the open, unchallenged and unpunished by authorities.

The sad truth is that we can legislate rules and regulations, but not the human heart nor the background learning of every single person on the planet. So long as insecure people are looking for ways to differentiate and promote themselves as special or better - and using improper criteria like race, ethnicity or something similar to do so -- there simply cannot be freedom or justice.

Powerful message, sad but true. More justice must be met & discrimination outlawed.

Noted. Yes, we have unfortunately devolved on the issue of race to our detriment. I also blame the media, which could've been very helpful instead of hindering with their divisiveness.

Carrie, what about racial injustice in Arab states, some of which still practice slavery and badly abuse blacks and Asians?

You posted 4,379 articles, and I have not seen one where you point at anything wrong at any Arab country. Why do you need to always blame US or Israel, rather to to look at the mirror and see what is done by your own people?

My own people? I consider myself an American. An honest American of primarily Hispanic ancestry. I just happen to believe in telling it like it is, whether it is the U.S., Israel, or anyone else. By the way, thanks for keeping track of all my news submissions for me! Good job!

I do not foresee any progress in racial injustice for many generations.....too many people have racial bias ingrained in their social and family structure. Only time and education can erase this.

Carrie, anyone looking at one of your submissions seen how many submissions you have done in total. It also says in the same top right hand corner that you 4114 have made front page story. Now that's what I call a Good Job!

If Bob could just be bothered to follow the link behind those numbers, he could actually count how many of these are, what he considers to be, Palestinian propaganda and start telling the the semblance of truth for once. Until he has done some real homework, biased though it may be, let's all just ignore him, shall we?

This is just ridiculous after all this time. Immigrant groups from all over the world have come and assimilated and been welcomed to the land of the free. The difference with the African-American group is they didn't immigrate and somehow that has translated into a license to never fully embrace them as equals in our society, it is long past time that stop. I see changes in slow steps in commercials, television, print media, but still, far too often, they are "they" not "we" as are other nationalities. "We" need to do that, go out of our way if need be, but do everything possible to help African Americans feel as welcome as part of America as any other nationality. That requires commitment from the highest level of government to the person on the street and it is time "we" made that happen. This is OUR land, all of us, and none of us should be excluded nor any of us forget that. Racism must become a thing of our sordid past, not our hopeful future. Only WE can make that happen. And WE should.

Racists and people with this mindset must find someone to hate.

WE MUST ALL TEACH OUR CHILDREN "TO LOVE THY NEIGHBOR". We must stop generations of brainwashing hatred & racism. Most countries are multicultural & it is interesting to learn about different cuisines & lifestyles.Our futures lay in the hands of our children.
