People have mixed feelings about this.
In a recent interview with CBS, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) said that while America isn’t a racist country, there is still lingering effects of racism from the past.
According to Breitbart, Scott stated, “Well, first, let me say thank goodness that finally, our president, our vice president, and one of the leaders in the Democrat- Democrat caucus in the House, Jim Clyburn, have all come forward and said exactly what I’ve been saying for a long time. America is not a racist country. The question is, is there a lingering effect after a couple of centuries of racism and discrimination in this nation? The answer is absolutely. The question we should be debating and fighting over is how do we resolve those issues going forward.”
