Why is race such an issue in the US?
I've been to other countries like the Canada, UK, Turkey, and Qatar and in those countries there's a lot of different people from different origins but they don't have as much of a racial mentality as the US. What is up with the US and when will also this inequality end?

Because in Canada and UK it is illegal to express your racism. In USA you have freedom of speach, in Canada you do not.

LOOK AROUND... THE DEMOCRITS and BLM want to yell RACIST at anyone and anything which is not on their way of thinking or saying.
IT'S easy to say someone is a racist and that's one of the Democrits Biggest Cards... 'THEY CALL ANYONE a RACIST who is not on board with them just to try to get the BLACK and BROWN and YELLOW votes because they know its a bad word and TO MANY PEOPLE JUST LISTEN and BELIEVE what they are told and do not fact check things for themselves. 'NAME CALLING IS EASY...

The US has racism embedded in its roots; slavery was a big part of its history.

It is not. The leftists are exploiting false claims of racism in order to create more power for themselves.

"Race" has been a huge issue in Canada, to the point where the Canadian government had to pay reparations and create the separate territory of Nunavut to address its conflicts with the First Nations people (not to mention that this population is still an underclass). I won't even get into the Quebecois separatists.
Google "Windrush" if you'd like to know what's gone on with race in the UK. Britain underwent plenty of race riots in earlier days and it's also seen plenty of them lately, largely influenced by what's going on in the US. Statues in UK cities have been toppled too.
Turkey is a theocracy run by a near dictator and is also nearly racially homogeneous. The big conflict there is ethnic (the Kurds).
Qatar is a monarchy and almost all of its racial and ethnic diversity comes in the form of guest workers who aren't likely to protest for more rights.
What's going on in the US isn't racial so much as political. Furthermore it's being pumped out to the rest of the world by our media in a way that makes it look far worse than it is. Truly one can count on one hand the number of cities that are having real problems. But CNN and ilk are invested in presenting "disaster porn" for reasons that are both economic to itself and pivotal to its own biases.

Let us examine Canada where several hundred "indigenous" women turn up missing. There is racism in Canada, they just keep it on the reservation.
Then there is Turkey and Qatar where the socially acceptable barrier is religion. Often this is along racial lines and is backed up with religion differences.
Then there is Britain- try being Irish there. While you might think an Englishman and an Irishman are the same race- ask one and they will tell you the are not of the same bolt of cloth.
As for when will inequality end- when the last bigot has died and the last form of bigotry is eradicated. Racism is just a form of bigotry and right now it is a socially unacceptable form. Those who would normally use race as a focus of their bigotry are just shifting it to the police. It is still bigotry, inequality and unjust.

🥴 The US is a melting pot. There's no indigenous race that rules it.
So... it's like the country is constantly at war with itself because we all know that no one race is heir to the throne.
America is made up of basterd children from other nations.
There's no set culture to respect. Just vultures.
Oh and it was better when Bill Clinton was President.
America went broke and cut throat after that.

A history of black slavery, the Civil War and Jim Crow. Blacks have been considered inferior by the white population since 1619 and there is a subset of Americans who still feel that way.
