Racism
There's something to talk about. Lately I've read a couple recent, non-fiction books and one caught my attention. "My Country vs. Me" by Wen Ho Lee. If you're American and into the news, I'm sure you've heard of Dr. Wen Ho Lee from maybe 2-4 years ago.

Although the book was written in his perspective, it gave the reader both perspectives.. 1) his perspective 2) the government/fbi's perspective. What you can conclude from this is that Dr. Lee was targetted because of his ethnicity. If you don't know who he is, he was the Nuclear Physicist that underwent 2 years of cruel and unusual punishment from the U.S. government. They claimed that he gave classified secrets to China. He was treated as a criminal and put into prison before his trial. Later, he agreed to a plea bargain to plead guilty to 1 count rather than 59 counts (39 of which had life sentences).

So yes.. I just wanted to know your opinion. Racism has existed forever and it may be different than back in the day, but I want to know your reasons on why you think people are targetted. According to history, white/caucasian people believed black/african people were inferior. Same thing happened with asians. What is it now and why can't everyone be equal?
