I think so. But spreading in completely different and new, also aggressive directions. But then again, that's just a personal pole of the people I know from different races, and it's consistent which is why I draw certain conclusions.
I have been discussing this a great deal for one of my 'almost done soon' hubs.
As I told my cousin, who is black, as are two more.and the hub title;
I'm tired of feeling guilty for being white.
Well him and the boyz never laughed so hard, and concluded by calling me a cracker.
I had to laugh to, but they clarified so much to be about black versus white views, and that helped so much. But I still expressed my views cause I never did anything wrong, those that have, is between them and their god.
Yes, racism still exist and I feel that its still an ongoing problem. I just wish people would look pass it (i know it not going to happen) or at least have an open mind. There are too much going on in the world to be focused or disgruntled about a person's skin colour.
Would racism ever go away? I would like to hope so, but very much doubt it. There are people that I call "extreme racists" that breed their thinking into their children and whatnot; just to keep the cycle of hate going.
To me, there is no reason for the hate. I find it pure ridiculous to hate someone soley because he or she is shade of colour that you don't like. I think people should embrace their skin colour, their culture, and learn something from someone of a different race culture. There's no harm in that.
Welcome to HubPages!
A little effort to search and you would have found that your OP has been answered quite a few times.
"A little effort to search..........?" seems a little rude but, thanks for commenting ;-)!
HubPages frowns on multiple thread regarding SAME subject or topic. Wasn't being rude.
True, but I haven't seen the topic discussed recently (e.g., since we all beat the whole Shirley Sherrod/NAACP speech) topic to death a couple of weeks back!
Maybe there has been some progress made or others who didn't participate then would like to talk about racism now.
Personally, I believe it still exists and will always exist. The targeted race may change with the times or vary with the geographical location. However, there will always be animosity from one race against another. Sad, but true.
Hey Mighty Mom, I would disagree that it will always exist. But, it most certainly exists today and will for a while longer forward.
The simple fact that it continues to be part of the breeding of families is one reason it remains and will continue, until a more conscious effort is made to get rid of it.
It's sad, but yes racism does exist. Although there has been lots progress since the "civil" days, racism is still a problem in America, however its not as prominent in today's society of course. Thank goodness!
Yeah...it is sad. Racism does exist in this country and around the world. Mostly because people are afraid of the unknown. They get scared when they see others of different color or ethnic background come into their area and compete for their jobs or men or women. Then they get jealous and say nasty things and make up lies to spread around. The little white lies grow into legend and soon whole blocks of one type of ethnic group think erroneous things about other whole ethnic groups.
Interesting that you say that.
This seems to be a self-esteem issue and a lack of self-confidence, blames on race.
Ego problem more than anything else, along with insecurity issues.
@Ecoggins. Unfortunately some people do think the way you have suggested and its sad because their is no valid reason to compete because of your ethnicity. I can understand competing for a Job as far as who has the best credentials, training, etc. Jealousy unfortunately does play a big part. It seems as though we sometimes create discord for no reason, a rebel without a cause. Then again people would still complain if we were all the same race, LOL! sad but true. Thanks for your comment.
Here is my personal experience not too long ago:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Blatant-Racism- … arking-Lot
That was completely ridiculous! She already had some issues and I guess you were the one she decided to take it out on. That was so unnecessary.
Yes there is racism. And it's not just the generic "white people hate group X or group Y" variety. It's a continuous morphing thing, as it has always been, that has far, far more to do with wealth, power and resources than it has to do with what anyone looks like or where they go to church... although those surface things can influence one's approach to appearance and/or wealth.
I also think that anecdotes of racism are horrific, but no more so than is the impact of using racism as an excuse for poor behavior.
You might find the hub I wrote not too far back interesting if you're really into what your fellow hubbers have to say. Some of the comments on this hub are excellent too:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Racism-in-Ameri … ding-Truth
Also, Mysterlady 89 recently put up a great hub about the impact of racism in schools and on literature (that too has some excellent feedback): http://hubpages.com/hub/censorshipintheclassroom
@shadesbreath I was appalled to find out by I believe Nell Rose who commented on censorship in the classroom that in europe they either added or are talking about adding "asian toilets" built into the ground because it would be good for "race relations" . What in the world.......?
They're also better for your health, for the record. Squatting, as opposed to sitting, is a better posture for bowel movements, as far as constipation and risks of strain/incomplete evacuation which cause all kinds of problems in and of themselves.
There will always be racism as long as we have divisions according to socio-economic classes by race and pre-conceived notions which are derived from history and familial, societal values -- to act on our prejudice by race is a different thing.
exactly.. and may I add that until we all collectively acknowledge the natural superiority of the Greek people, the social, economic and political hierarchy of the world will never be appropriately structured
LOL, will you imposed it upon us, Well I have no doubt Greeks are the handsomest, hehe not in naked stones and art only, The Greek Gods have wavy hair and stoned P-- hehehe
