I agree with you that racism still exists in our communities and all over the nation. Our society raises us with these notions from birth that "asians are bad drivers" and "all mexicans love tamales" and "black people are good in sports". They are pre judgements that are instilled in our heads from children. I think when we take it to the next level and purposely use that information in a derogatory way to offend someone is when we cross that line and become "a racist".

Racism is by no question cruel, ruthless, and wicked. We know that it played a prevalent role in the United States over half a century ago. But what about today? If we are talking about racism in the media, it would be impossible to spot racism anywhere. But if we are talking about racists within the extraordinary population of the United States, then best believe that there are still whites that have a hate for blacks, and even blacks that have a hate for whites as a result. These people will just not be out there to express their beliefs because they know that most of society has became against it. From time to time, you will hear about a teacher in America who is segragating the whites from the blacks, or someone who will not sell a product to a different race. But they do it all in secret because once it goes out to public, they wont have any comment.

Unfortunately this world will never be with out racism. It has existed since the beginning of time the Egyptians treated the Hebrews as slaves and even now when you take a close look at our world you will see that slavery never really ended, it just became less popular and not something someone would boast about(having slaves). Every race has been discriminated against in by some one else it just depends on the times and the place.
