Prejudice, discrimination, and antagonism directed against someone of a darker skin color based on the belief that one's own race is superior has dominated the behavior of many Americans in the United States. Despite discrediting most of scientific efforts to elevate one race over another by people of European descent, small numbers of social scientists continue throughout the 21th century to argue the inborn shortcomings of certain races, especially Black people.  

Recent news headliners have uncovered smothering hatred that “everyday” White Americans have for non-White Americans living in the United States. While talking to her family on November 4th at an Applebee’s restaurant, a Black American (immigrant from Africa) woman was attacked by a White American woman who smashed a beer mug into her face cutting her lip and nose badly. The White American objected to the Black woman speaking a language which was not English. Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, advocates building a wall along the United States borders to block Mexicans from crossing into America.

There is a breakdown in trust between prominent Black community leaders such as ministers, athletic coaches and some parents and young Black Americans. The "twenty-somethings" are showing an awakening and a desire to confront the established racial practices in the United States of America. Recently,students at Yale University demanded recognition of disparities within that “austere” institution and "on-mass" addressed the newly appointed Black American Dean. Black American football players at Missouri University threat of a game boycott because of administration inertia about on-campus incidents of  racial slurs hurled at black students and feces smeared into the shape of a swastika on a wall in a residence hall resulted in an official's resignation.
