Letter to the editor: Definition of real racism

It’s interesting to think about the words being tossed around in our society today. In a recent article, U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal “backwalked” her statement that Israel is a “racist” state after backlash from her fellow representatives. Aren’t we all “racists” to some degree, according to the definition of racism?

“A person who is prejudiced against or antagonistic toward people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.”

After living in a foreign country for close to four years, it’s evident they have their own ideologies regarding their culture. As American children born and raised in this country, we have the natural learning of our own.

I suspect we each are racist to some degree on many subjects. Yet, what is breaking our solid basic standards within this country to a tangled up mess? Is it the millions of foreigners that have infiltrated our country with their own ideology of what is right or wrong and think their interpretation is better? Or is it those in Congress wanting complete control to their own agenda and standards? History indicates our country started mainly for religious freedom. It might be a question all of us should be thinking about in regards to the takeover by our present leaders.
