The world doesn't prop up failed socialist systems they put people in power that keep the countries poor and in a state of utter chaos while they loot it and give "aid" while it collects resources that are in higher value than the "aid". It should never be possible for a military to overthrow a government then prop up a new leader that came from nowhere. The military should never be ran by uneducated people or a group of people from one region of a country and should be paid well and have good benefits to avoid issues and shouldn't have trainings by Western militaries. The USA government encourages pride in country from the beginning of life so quos just wouldn't happen in the US.

Somehow the US government got an enslaved group of people fight for them. They experimented on service men and at some point made them feel lucky to fight and die for their country. Come back from war and get lynched, but black people still enlist and feel proud they or their family members have served. When you have pride for your country you will do anything!

Also I don't know too many middle eastern that thinks they are white/caucasian rather they identify with where they come from putting themselves in a different category altogether (I know some that marry whites say they are white for whatever reason, just silly to me since a lot are very dark). There are many shades of middle easterners they don't all look the same. From my experience they always reference my people as their brothers for whatever that is worth. Although West Africans traded their people Arabs also traded slaves from West Africa too!

A lot of middle eastern history should be taught in schools especially since they are one of the wealth builders in this country.

Play this however you want. Any type of system produces the same results in a place where the people are constantly labeled as lesser "subhumans" by everyone, including some of our own. People create systems, and there are wide differences between the people of Singapore, Taiwan or South Korea and the black people of Africa as well as those of us scattered throughout the globe. We are not Asians, not Europeans, not Native Americans or Jews. Does not matter what you call soft bigotry of low expectations. Our differences are in everyday survival from thought processes, how we navigate the world, and of course not leaving out the constant reminder of our "undesirable physical and behavioral attributes" to our combined lower level of interest in the things that many others have in common. Because a large number of us "don't do what others do nor want what others want" every single person of mostly black African descent becomes categorized as an entire group of people needing to be "led and fed" by the rest of the world and not much more.
