One of the middle school teachers told the class that the United States is THE most racist country in the world. I tried to imagine what criteria was used to make this assessment. Clearly, sexism didn’t factor into the equation at all, because women and girls in other countries are routinely raped, mutilated, killed, bought and sold. Genocide must not count against a country. I guess it is based on the sheer number of times “I’m not a racist, but” is uttered in a single day.
