    There are still some residual customs, however. There are things one can and cannot say depending on their race. For example, white people can't say "nigger", and black people can't say "hi dad".

    AA does not remediate or mitigate prejudice, not even close. All AA does is politically pacify. Again, the only realistic answer is education.

    I suspose it is way too much for you to be meaningful in the discussion, again all I see is an interest in persecution.

    Who said I was oppressed? Go back and find exactly where I said that. And your judgement of what I must be, white, speaks volumes about your own prejudices. My answers must mean I am white, therefore you engage in the very prejudice we are talking about which is also rooted in pure ignorance.

    See that may be a complicated issue because Obama is more white than black, and his black side does not come from slave stock like his wife. I think they're calling Obama like "mah nigga" as one may hail Eminem.

    Um... wow. So much for meaningful discussion on the matter, and we wonder why racism is still here...

    Yes it exists. It will always exist. It is part of natures design.

    Then there is the commercial institution part that needs to maintain perceptions to remain in power.

    Thankfully, the vast majority of people don't see color, or culture, they just see neighbors, friends, and coworkers.

    That you won't say the word, is racist. "Nigger" is portuguese for "black", so you'll say "black" in English, the white man's language, but you won't say "black" in any other ethnic context.

    That's white elitism, that's racist.

    Considering the profoundly ignorant question OP based this thread on, I think the post content so far is as good as one could hope for.
