The conclusion that I have arrived at after tons of research is that the mainstream media is the divisive problem. It insights fear and keeps people divided. It as been the weapon of the powerful wealthy class in this country since its founding and continues to be. The main stream media is owned by the rich and powerful as it has always been since the days of Benjamin Franklin.
A good book to read is The People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn. Chapter 2 is called “Drawing the Color Line.” This helps us to understand the history of how the idea of “race” came to be in this country.
