    BTW, the first step to having a truly color-blind society would be altering the traffic lights.

    Seriously. What's wrong with using shapes as well as color?!??!?

    Re: Who here is tired of hearing about racism?

    It seems to me that how much the race card has been played lately has been overhyped. Yes, some on the left have accused their opponents of being racist, and they should be held accountable for their words. On the other hand, two things are happening on the right which I think are being overlooked. Firstly, there seems to be this push on the right that seems to essentially claim that racism is only coming from the black community nowdays, that we no longer have to worry about good ol-fasioned white-hating-black racism, when it is still an issue. Secondly, any criticism of the right is often dealt with "STOP CALLING ME RACIST", even if no one has accused them of being racist at all.

    Other:

    1) I am tired of people not knowing what racism even is; and

    2) I am tired of people pretending that our society has moved past it.

    Obviously, we haven't moved completely past it.

    However, I think it is far less prevalent than in the past.

    I'm guessing that would not be politicians.

    I personally think it is coming from the politician community, and if they would get off the race-baiting crap, things would be better.

    You can't eliminate its existence. That is utterly impossible. There will always be people who don't like various groups for whatever reasons, be it race, religion, culture, or even something as seemingly benign as not liking stupid people. People, by their very nature, notice differences and identify with those that are similar. Racism cannot be eliminated any more than any other distinguishing trait.
    That being said, laws can be made to uphold equal opportunity and treatment under the law. That's about as close to eradicating racism as we can come to until all races are blended into one.

    I'm not sure why a poll that's obviously intended as sarcasm or a joke isn't in the Basement, the Partisan section, or the conspiracy section.

    This forum has really gone downhill if this is what passes for legitimate political discourse these days.
