When will the left finally let racism die off?

Do you guys intend to keep it in the forefront for decades more to come?

Senator Byrd, who was adored by the left, stated in an interview that he felt it was much better and if we didn't talk about it all the time it would go away. Successful black man Morgan Freeman stated the same in an interview with Don Lemon.

Update:

Am I that stupid? This is coming from 2 prominent Democrats. There is no talking this crap out. The more you talk about it, you awaken extremists from both sides, then moderates get involved, etc. It's neverending.

    The DNC can only control if it can continue to divide and create fear.

    Fascism cannot survive in a democracy. Our ancestors left behind a legacy. They fought too hard for democracy and they didn't want the future generations to ever forget the value of a democracy.

    Our democracy is in peril from this GOP administration. Every time the fascists attempt to destroy our democracy by rigging the election system, like the current fascist GOP administration, Americans will rise up united as one powerful force --Republicans and Democrats.

    Justice moves slowly, but the end is near for this corrupt Trump administration. No one wants to be on the losing team. The Republican politicians, who have attacked the FBI in an attempt to prevent the FBI's protecting the interests of the USA, will be judged harshly.

    Who is going to vote for a politician judged guilty by society for compromising US interests and security in favor of a hostile foreign power? Any associations with those who conspired with that hostel foreign power's rigging a presidential election might not go to jail, but their political careers are over. We know their names.

    Certain enemies of "the left" keep posting this BS question, but it is nonsense. Leftists could not "let racism die off" in the USA if we wanted to, because racist cultural beliefs and racial hatreds are deeply rooted in American history going back 400 years to when the first slave ships visited Virginia.

    Racism and racial conflicts also have haunted states like Texas, California and New Mexico since the Mexican War of 1848; and racism toward Native Americans / aka / American Indians has been part of mainstream white American culture since the Puritans fought in King Phillip's War. There's a long, basically ugly history of racism toward Asian Americans -- especially the Chinese and Japanese -- in the American West and California, too.

    There's nothing liberals can do to "let racism die off" without the USA as a nation and/or society coming to grip with our deepest and oldest social problem. Accusing them of perpetuating it is dumb.

    Caveat: Some leftists have historically seized on the racial oppression of particular minority groups in hopes of building a stronger progressive and/or socialist movement in this country. The old Communist Party made a regular practice of supporting the civil rights of black people in the Old South in order to recruit black members in the 1930s and 1940s, for example. And other leftist groups are following similar strategies today.

    But "the left" didn't invent the racism they're fighting against. They're trying to make use of it as an organizing issue -- but the racism they're fighting has generally been REAL.

    If conservatives like you hate "the left" - why don't YOU folks work to eliminate racism in this society, ALL racism, and not just what you love to call "reverse discrimination" against white folks?

    Why don't YOU support government programs or private efforts to advance economic opportunities, eliminate poverty, and end bigoted and violent police practices targeted at black and Latino and Asian American people -- so that "racism" as a leftwing organizing opportunity disappears?

    It wouldn't be easy to do this; fighting racism in the US (and in most other societies) is never very easy. It would be complicated as hell to fix the problem. But UNTIL the real problems get fixed, racism is NOT going to die off, and so long as it still exists, some leftwing organizers are going to try to build our movement by fighting against it. Mostly legitimately.

    I doubt it will happen any time soon. Identity politics is their stock in trade.

    Liberals use people for their own agenda. That's why they no longer care about Kanye West, cause he started to think for himself. Cons accept others. Liberals think if you're black than you have to be a democrat or else you're a coon. Yet we're the racists for giving them the freedom to choose.

    as soon as racism dies off. The republican party is aging, it shouldn't be much longer.

    Racists won’t be safe in the US. If you’re a racist you will be humiliated publicly and there is nothing you can do about it!

    I noticed how you ignore the white nationalist who cling to your side!

    Remember Trump saying they're good people?
