        The problem isn't just a specific type of Racism either. There's more than one type in America, which is part of the problem to begin with.

    yup, they can be found in many groups, even in one's own tongue do you think, if examined, they would all have some sort of common disorder? lol

      They probably have certain personality traits, such as high anxiety (fear), low self-esteem, and low tolerance for changing environments.  People with close minds usually tend to be racist.

      Reverse Racism? This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of.

      Racism is Racism, regardless of who or how. hmm

        How 'bout reverse discrimination? I didn't make up the term "reverse racism" - even Wiki has a piece about it.

          Again, discrimination is discrimination whether it's against a male or a female, regardless of where it comes from.

          I know you didn't make up the term. But, it's still ridiculous.

            I understand what you're saying, but in the South, most people think racism occurs only when it's white against black. When it's black against white, many southerners use the term "reverse racism."

                Another scathing retort.

                  And as usual, you add nothing to a topic, except to try incite others. Good for you. You show off your true colors.

                  You must be proud. roll

    There will be racism until people evolve and realize that all of us are ONE.  People will always see differences with each other, whether it is race, looks, age, religion, beliefs, education, and/or class.  One group often use upmanship on another group to make them feel better.  From time immemorial, there was always an ingroup and an outgroup.  Members of the ingroup were the ones with the most privileges, whether is was better access to living conditions and better jobs while the outgroup had the least privileges and endured poorer sociocultural and socioeconomic conditions.  The ingroup was taught that those of the outgroup were inferior to them in every way thus they often displace all their negative feelings and characterizations on the outgroup.  Thus the outgroup became the symbol of all that is negative within the ingroup.

    I question the bartender's assertion that he is exercising free speech. Contrary to popular belief free speech does not mean you can say anything that comes out of your mouth.    His remarks that the idea that because it offends does not mean it's not free speech it would be interesting to see if he really believes that should a neighbor across the street from his house decides to tack up a sign in front of their house saying that his wife was a lady of the night or that his children can be classified as bullies.

    It would appear that we in this modern day society no matter how much education, no matter how much effort is put forth to create a better society we can accept the idea that racial ignorance will always be a staple in our society, if this be true why even make the effort to address racism?

      To think that Racism cannot be eliminated on a social scale is absurd and limited.
