2. Americans need to travel more

While racism exists worldwide, in a lot of parts of the world it's not the same as the US where blacks face so muck overt racism. I remember going to Brazil for the first time and at least to my eye, the people I met there seemed to be completely color blind, it seemed like black, white, native colors were not even a thing there.

I also know several expats who live in Europe that are African Americans (Poland, the UK, Holland, and Germany). In visiting them they made it known that the burdens placed on them in the US aren't present over there, or at least they don't face them as much. Now I'm sure nothing is perfect, they're just of the mind that they aren't discriminated against as overtly as they are in the US. And of course all of those countries have much less powerful law enforcement in terms of civil rights, so that has to help.
