    Since I reside in the USA and my info @ other countries comes from sources other than my own observations, I have to base my thoughts on these other sources.  That said, it seems that here we really do TRY to not be racist.  Our government institutions are, by law, not operated as racist entities.  As a female, I thank God daily that I had the great good fortune to be born here.  I see scenes from the Islamic world, and the horrible living conditions, and I always ask "How much more advanced and developed could these countries be if they only allowed women to contribute?".  This nation definitely has its problems, and there will always be individuals who are biased against whatever group for whatever reason, but at least we try to have everyone treated fairly and equally in the eyes of the law.

    Why do we fixate on the idea that only Americans are racists?
    Racism is endemic the world around. Ask the Gypsies, Ask the Kurds. Ask the Armenians. Ask in Bosnia. Ask in South Africa. Everywhere there are people there are those who want no part of those who are different from themselves and are willing to use any means to prevent contact.

    As for America. It has improved over the last 50 years but racism will never be totally irradicated. Let me tell you though that Jews can be very racist. Blacks can be very racist. Orientals can be racist. Anyone in this country can be a racist. Please note that I say "can be" not "is".

    I've done a little traveling in my time and I find it present in every part of the world I have seen.
