    Because they themselves are subliminally racist. They have been living in their world of white privilege, and want nothing less than being privileged.

    They will even accept a crook as president of the United States rather than face the truth.

    Facing the truth requires deciding what the truth is. In the present clime of so-called "fake news" and "alternative facts," everyone has declared their personal opinion "fact," and it's getting nearly impossible for the truth to actually be established anymore. I suppose that's why they're antiestablishment -- so as to disestablish the truth.

    "so many people" ??? Who are these people? Blacks do not want to face the truth because their narrative of "blame it all on whitey" gives them power. They do not want to admit that slavery in the south would not have been possible without blacks in Africa who would 'round up' blacks from other tribes and sell them to the ships' captains. The truth would also not allo the blame to fall on many other whites who came to America after slavery was over, but the blacks still want to blame all whites. If they can create a narrative which puts a guilt trip on whites they they expect special treatment. Affirmative action was born out of such 'white guilt' and blacks take advantage of it whenever they can.

    Fear and ignorance.

    Because Liberals hate being reminded that they supported slavery, created the KKK, spearheaded Jim Crow and fought every major race rights bill in the history of the country.

    Racism has always been there thanks to the Democrat party and is still there thanks to the Democrat party.

    It's because they do not care about the lives of people from other races.

    Those that can't face the truth, are the racists themselves.
