America’s chronic affliction

A cultural cancer afflicts the country. Racism is far more prevalent than people perceive. Irrelevant rants about "negroes" by Cliven Bundy, the deadbeat Arizona rancher, can be dismissed as the ravings of an unfortunate eccentric. After all, he apparently also believes that the United States of America does not legally exist. Therefore, he believes he does not owe the federal government the fees for grazing his cattle on U.S. land. Bundy also believes that slavery is preferable to poverty with its inadequate government subsidies. While Bundy may be viewed as an outlier, that cannot be said of Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team.
