Do you think that there is less racism now in the world than there was 20 years ago?
What is the evidence for racism is decreasing or increasing? What metric can we use to determine the trend in the current times?
Yes! for me racism has greatly decrease compared to around some 20 years ago. A lot of factors can be considered contributors to this:
First the significant growth of education, as more and more people becomes highly educated they also become more friendly rather than hostile as being nice to people has always become a mark of being a decent educated member of the society.
Democracy has also led people to welcome and acknowledge the rights and responsibilities of each person regardless of his race, culture or belief.
Third is rise of information technology, this has greatly influenced people to connect, to build networks of friends around the world, regardless of culture and race, language barriers has been greatly diminished by interpreters and online translation services.
