The reason the history is downplayed is 1) guilt, and more importantly 2) it shatters the myth of American exceptionalism: that the United States was founded on the highest ideals of freedom and respect for human rights.
But racism (and prejudice more broadly) will always exist, because it gratifies a need to feel superior to others. Bigotry feeds the insecure ego.
