    I have to say YES.  It seems like so many people are so afraid of being racist that they make an issue of it by trying to avoid making an issue of it.
    Currently, I live in an area that racism is quite accepted. I am glad my family is so diverse and my children will grow up around this.

    until everyone is the same and the ability to have likes and dislikes and the right to express them, yes.  And it had been so from the beginning of time.  Isn't that in a way what killed Jesus, the jews, etc.  Labeling anyone is a sign of prejudice.  Racism is just a form of prejudice.   So even the act of labeling someone a racist is a form of prejudice and is just as wrong.  We will never be all the same.  We will all have likes and disliked and we have the right to express them.  I think we need to quit focusing on what others are and concentrate on ourselves and being our best person and lead by example instead of name calling and labeling, no matter how you feel.

    Unfortunately, yes there are way too many racist in this country.  Sadder, most do not believe they are. 

    Still, it is better than when I was in middle school back in the '70s. Then there was a fear of a race war between the junior high school kids from different towns in Queens, NY. 

    What I am grateful for is that I am not a bigot.  Thanks to my parents.

    i think that many of us still are racists to some degree.  the vehemence against obama amazes me.  people support things against their own interests just because he is for them.  the gop seems to use this trait to further its own ends.  i lived through the civil rights movement.  we don't want to go back.

    I think many people still have prejudices towards other people. It's unfortunate.

    Without a doubt yes. Sad to say, I still hear comments on the street, if I am the "wrong" color. If some people are still stuck in their old, unchanging ways, then the world will never progress to a higher level of acceptance. We may live in racial harmony, but acceptance...now that is key.

    Yes, every one of us is racist or bigoted to some degree or the other.

    And that will not cease to be the case among human beings until Kingdom Comes.
