    What you are describing is variously called "dehumanization" or "objectification."  It's been around a long time.  How could you possibly be surprised that it is part of social life in the US?  I guess it is usually the case that people arrive at an understanding of the savagery of this particular homeland, one that basked in the glories of WWII for decades, in piecemeal fashion.  So, you knew of the necessity of the Civil Rights movement, you knew of the barbarity of the Vietnam war, etc. etc. but you can still find yourself being surprised at this.  Next, dig into what is happening in the Ukraine. Or, try Gaza.
