Did the United States of America's Government pass civil right's laws voting right's laws and anti racial discrimination laws in the 1950's and the 1960's because the American Politicans and the American Political Elite stopped being racist ? I find it hard to believe that the American Presidents Eisenhower Kennedy and Johnson passed these civil rights laws because they cared or want to helped to felt sorry for Black People in America or American Indians also called Native Americans or Chicanos and or Asians or any other Non White Race or oppressed Race. I think these White Capitalist Politicans passed these laws because they felt they had to. During the Cold War the Soviet Union and many other Nation States criticized the United States of America for it's racism jim crow laws white privilege. The American Government wanted to be a super power so of course they had to pass these laws to make it look like they wanted to change. South Africa and Rhodesia had to give up it's Apartheid laws due to being criticized and economic sanctions and economic boycotts. There were civil rights laws voting rights laws passed after the American Civil War for Black People in America yet years later another Civil Rights law was passed why another one America already had one ? The fact is that we in America and the rest of the West always seem to have White Political Leaders and Presidents because of White Privilege. People think American Politics is no longer racist but George Wallace claimed that he changed too as did David Duke Pat Buchanan and Jared Taylor. Civil Rights Laws may of also been passed to stop race riots and other kinds of riots. The Non White Nations are not going to trade deal or work with the United States of America Rhodesia South Africa and the fact that the African and Asian Nations and other Nations were getting their Independence in the 1950's and the 1960's after World War 2. Does anyone agree ? The British Government and also Winston Churchill did not want to give up running India they forced to leave. In my view the American Government never wanted to pass Civil Rights Laws they were forced to also they got new voting blocs with the Voting Rights Laws it helped them to get more votes. The White Capitalist Politicans just wanted votes. President Harry Truman integrated the American Military in 1948 he knew a integrated American Military would work better. Franklin D. Roosevelt passed the Fair Employment Practices Committee. President Eisenhower integrated a high school in little rock in 1957 because of the 1954 brown vs board case Eisenhower also passed civil rights laws in 1957 and 1960. America pased the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 which America really only wanted cheap labor more wage slaves not to get more racial diversity. America did vote for President Obama but Obama works for the Capitalist Elite. Obama is a Capitalist. What has Obama done for Black People ? America is not really a integrated nation do you agree ? America is only integrated as far the laws. American Pro Baseball was integrated in 1947 by Jackie Robinson but the White Baseball team owner most likely only wanted to make a profit. There is still a wealth gap between the races. America was racist by it's laws untill the 1970's. My question is why do White Racists feel a need to keep their racism hidden ? Also is Capitalism based on Racism ? The White Supremacists on today say they just want Separation not White Supremacy y question to them is if you wanted Racial Separation why did you bring Black People to America from Africa as Slaves then and you enslaved other races for cheap labor or to force them to work for free like the Africans you enslaved you forced to live in what you claim are the White Homelands is this correct thank you ?

Racism is more in the history of the Democrat Party and no they didn't suddenly stop being racist... I will point out that President Johnson needed the support of Republicans in the US Senate to get the Civil Rights Act through congress.

While individuals like David Duke tried to get into office as a Republican years later, the Republican Party actively did everything they could to ensure David Duke would lose, up to and including advertisements telling people to vote for the Democrat.

Despite what the mainstream media claim the Republican Party actually doesn't tolerate racism.

Capitalism is not based on race. It is based on ownership and class.

it may not be based upon race, however it is not quite that simple. race is an has historically been a big factor. much of the wealth and power of the ruling classes was built upon the subjugation and slavery of specific races. and the perpetuation of racism among the lower classes is a useful divide and rule tactic. etc. etc.

A) It's less about race today and more about economics. The cycle of poverty is not new.

B) Whatever the motives of the political class many white people did fight for civil rights and voted for the politicians who helped bring it about it. Just as Obama was elected by white voters. Why would all white politicans have one motive? Have you met people before?

C) America is segregated, yes. But that's a function of who people choose to have as neighbors and economics. You can't impose brotherly love or the end of poverty and crime.

It is definitely about economic position. The "ELITES" love to watch us low lifes fight amongst ourselves( whites v. blacks, whites v. hispanics, blacks v. hispanics, employed v. unemployed, etc. etc.). As long as we don't challenge their esteemed positions they will encourage and enjoy watching us low lifes make fools of ourselves.
