The United States has numerous social-cultural issues affecting its population. One of these problems is white supremacy. This concept refers to a racist perception that white persons are naturally superior to individuals of other races and should thus dominate them. While white supremacy in previous centuries galvanized a lot of support among white people, the concept is now regarded vicious by white, African American, Latino as well as other races. The modern American society is structured under cultural sensitiveness, racial equality, and religious tolerance. Unlike the years of slavery or reconstruction, all citizens in the United States are afforded equal rights irrespective of their cultural identities. Nevertheless, white supremacist notions persist in a nation that prides itself for its democratic model, cultural diversity, religious tolerance and socioeconomic transcendence. The state of white supremacy is that America can be manifested by violence, imperialistic tendencies, discrimination in the society, unfair immigration policies, poor political leadership, and the deplorable role of the media. With the growing number of atrocities being committed around the United States by both members of identified and non-identified white supremacist group, it is time to address this issue together. This paper, is a constructive discussion venting the many ills of racial discrimination in every aspect that affects minorities at all spheres of the society and the deplorable state of white supremacy in America.
