    Yes, all sorts of prejudices exist still today some of which develop into outright racism mentality (as in institutionalized.) Mainly because you cannot legislate how people feel. Race baiting sure does not help the matter either. There is an answer and as with most social matters it comes down to education. Not the complete answer, but it sure helps. That leads to understanding and opprotunity for change. But since we are not serious about education there is no real expectation that legislation will make up the difference.

    Of course, racism exists - bigots and morons exist everywhere. Laws alone cannot ever stop crime - they can only define it for later enforcement of those laws.

    "Other" is unsatisfactory in my opinion. I would have like an option that said "Yes, but it is not the kind of racism people think it is."
    I agree with the statements made by Morgan Freeman...

    "Racism", i.e. viewing someone as belonging to a group dynamic because of their external characteristics, is a natural, subconscious thing that all people do, black white or asian. Discriminating as a result of that subconscious identification? Another thing all together.

    For some that might be very real. Regardless, I would agree with you that it is foolish to believe racism is a one way street.
