Being denied a job, loan, raise or housing because of the color of your skin is an uncomfortable reality most have no experience with. Only those people that have been recipients of racism can claim to know what it's like. Actually knowing what it's like versus feeling sorry for those who have experienced it is the difference between sympathy and empathy.
Liberals will often dress up like or emulate a member of a minority group so they can say they have experienced racism and can sympathize, when in reality they can only empathize. The shared feeling that your a victim too fosters feelings of closeness and a bond can become formed between other victims. Most liberals like to feel a sense of closeness with minority groups. We've seen an example of this recently with the famous case of Rachel Dolezal, who even took the steps to become the President of the Spokane Chapter of the NAACP and had filed multiple reports with the police claiming to be the victim of hate crimes.
Racism can take the form of groups or behaviors can be harmful or beneficial to members of a specific race. Some of the harmful behaviors have already been listed in the beginning of this article, and examples of the beneficial kind are as follows:
1. Affirmative Action
2. US Council of Muslim Relations (U.S.C.M.O.)
3. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (N.A.A.C.P)
4. National Council of The Race (aka National Council of La Raza)
5. Black Entertainment Television (B.E.T)
6. United Negro College Fund
7. The BlackLivesMatter Protest Group
These groups or actions target specific skin tones and provide certain benefits to them, but only the race targeted by these groups receive the benefits. These benefits are the reason why minority groups will never let racism become a thing of the past. The fiction of a colorblind society or the idea all people could be seen as clear is an unrealistic fantasy by people who want racism to become a thing of the past.
