    I feel that as intergrated as we get it is all a sham
    everybody sees color weight and deformities of any kind
    We judge people on race creed and gender while all the time saying we are well cultured and open??? HAHA

    I don't know if you are making a reference to the world? to a specific country? However, I have written a hub on Racism in America. It's not what people think it is. It's actually more advanced and complex issue, but the hub reveals more than I can put into this comment. You're more than welcome to read it But, to generalize- and to answer your question specifically- is it possible? Yes. But, before it can be, people must be aware the depth of the battle to reach the point.

    It is absolutely possible to view people without making judgements based on color...meaning that discrimination against someone because of color...or prejudice...is not something that has to exist...

    It is entirely possible.....

    I see the people that claim to be "Open minded or Liberal" what ever you call it. They all tend to see differences in people and use those differences aginst them

    I would say it is world wide
    When a interacial couple fight were does it eventualy go, to racial slurrs. Well you tell me heat of the momment or deep in the heart? I would say deep in the heart

    Among reasonably educated people I think it is for the more education that we receive the more we realize that we should judge people on their individual merits as opposed to some generalization such as their race, ethnicity, or motivation. That said, I have to point out there is a greater danger of those who are of a given race to see the actions of others as "racists" in justifying their own behavior.  With some, this is a typical behavior and the first thing out of their mouth is the indication that they are playing the race card.  If I judge you to be a poor performer in your assigned job, I do so not on the basis of race or personality but on the key word, "performance".  If you can shrug off your performance and immediately play the race card as the basis for my rating, then we have a problem in society of who sees what color. In the end, regardless of color, it is all an exercise in human behavior.  Each and every individual earns the respect of another individual by the way the conduct themselves, their values, and dedication. Whether you are the victim or the perpetrator, if all you see is race, then you have a problem. WB

    I don't know if it's possible not to notice. But it's entirely possible to not make judgements based on it.

    Of course every one always notices what color some one else is, and in the vast majority of cases, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    For example, when I walk into a roomful of white people, there is never any doubt in my mind that what they see is a real hip, very handsome black dude.

    I mean, like, I and a very large number of other blacks are so cool and so good looking that even a great many white supremacists are attracted to us.

    In fact, when I was in the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany in the 1960's, quite a number of black-and-Jew-hating German chicks could not restrain themselves from getting cozy with me.

    Now, I am not boasting. I am just pointing out that in a great many cases, people actually do judge others by the content of their character rather than by the color of their skin.
