    It's institutional in Boston. People of opposite races barely look each other in the eye, let alone talk to each other.

    One of the least racist places I've ever been is Jackson, Mississippi. While people live on opposite sides of town, during the day you see see them everywhere TOGETHER, at lunch, playing golf, fishing, hanging out. People are so much less sensitive about their funny little differences.

    Re: AP poll: Majority harbor prejudice against blacks

    I live in South Carolina, the state that kicked off the War Between the States by bombarding Fort Sumter.

    SC is around 1/3rd black, or close to it, so whites and blacks are constantly interacting, working together, shopping at the same stores, etc.

    I would say race relations here are very good. My boss is a black guy (and a great boss too btw), I know lots of black business owners and managers. I see white grandparents in their 70's walking around Wal-Mart with their mixed-race grandchildren almost everytime I go there... and you have to understand this is a HUGE change from 20 years ago, when a mixed marriage was likely to result in being disowned by the family.

    The South tends to be less racist overall than the North. Chicago for instance is a very racist town. I am talking about both sides no less. Yet I go to Oklahoma and it is peaceable etc between the races. Of course people aren't living stacked on top of one another either. Ahhhh so many things affect the situation.

    I think the real problem lies with the people who yell racism at the drop of a hat when there is none. It like the media tends to exaggerate situations and makes situations look racist that are nothing of the sort. Racism is again out there and more so than we would like to think, but people making it far worse and watering down the word are not helping.

    what I find interesting is that there are black people who are racist against other black people.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    You're mostly wrong.

    Sure, we want tougher immigration laws, but there's an IMMENSE amount of respect for the Mexicans who come to Texas for work. Those folks work damn hard. They build almost everything, and they work everywhere. There's a small percentage that are up to no good, drug traffickers and whatnot, but most very much just want to work and get money back to Mexico to their families.

    Yep, but you wouldn't know it by what's said in the media. We're still hanging people down here if you listen to them.

    We're the ones setting the example for the rest of the country, truth be known.

    I think I am mostly right according to my Mexican friends. So we can just agree to disagree since it is all anecdotal either way.

    I took the test. Here is what the results informed me

    Your data suggest little to no difference in implicit preference between White People and Black People.

    Do you consider yourself free of implicit racism?

    Academic analysis


    So far comments I've read are saying this is nothing more than blatant propaganda on the part of the Obama campaign, an attempt to 'shame' ignorant white folks into voting for that black guy -- I so luvs me the True Believers

    What do you think of this?

    My opinion? The pastor is very old, and bless his heart. I don't think that his extreme views are typical. At least I hope not because they're scary.
