No no, what you're talking about is "manifest destiny" (google it) and that concept is not necessarily racist..or wasn't, depending on what region of the country one came up in.<quoted text> You continue to use the term" RACISM" to something that it doesn't apply. Racism is defined as a belief of White caucasian superiority over everyone who is non-white, and use that perceived superiority with military force to 'Subject' non- whites to a global second class status or something lower than that. That racism plays an intricate part in the daily lives of those who're white rather if they unconsciously realize it or not. That's why it's so easy for racist bigots who acknowledge and except their positions in the white supremacist global system, to call non- whites, apes, chimps, mud people, n! 663R, coon, and many other names that strip people of their "made in God's image" status on this planet. White racism is the problem!
Racism is much different and it cuts in different directions that affect all races, nationalities, religious beliefs, sexes etc. To be sure none in the US have suffered from racism in the ways that blacks have, or for the length of time, but others too have suffered.
Not arguing, just sayin.
