Race relations in the United States are currently facing significant challenges. A perspective exists that attributes these issues to the government’s long-standing policies of catering to minority groups, thereby creating divisions within the national identity. The belief is that all citizens should simply be identified as Americans, without hyphenated identities based on race or ethnicity. This viewpoint draws inspiration from the US Military’s approach in Basic Training, where uniformity and a shared commitment to the nation are emphasized, and racism is not tolerated.

To address race relations, several concrete actions are proposed:

  1. The elimination of affirmative action and special treatment for minorities is advocated, emphasizing equal treatment for all. The contradiction perceived between supporting affirmative action and demanding equal treatment is highlighted.
  2. It’s suggested that government forms should remove racial and ethnic markers, focusing only on essential personal information. This proposal aims to reduce divisions based on race and ethnicity.
  3. The stance is firm against racism, but equally condemns rioting, looting, and violence during protests. It is argued that such unrest should be swiftly dealt with by law enforcement, the National Guard, or the military to prevent escalation.
  4. The categorization of organizations like Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers as hate groups, similar to the Klu Klux Klan, is proposed. This stems from the view that violence associated with these groups should be treated as domestic terrorism.
  5. The calls to disband or defund the police are criticized as overreactions. Instead, it is suggested that police training should focus more on the use of non-lethal force, like tasers, BOLO wraps, and water cannons, to improve law enforcement practices.

The overarching theme is a call for unity under a singular national identity, with an emphasis on equal treatment and a strong stance against both racism and violent protest actions.
