    Racism is virtually non existent .All claims of racism these days inevitably are about violations of personal preferences

      I wouldn’t say it is “virtually nonexistent”. My brother-in-law is black. He and my sister went into a Sears store. He had just come from an interview so was in suit and tie. She was in sweats, having just come in from a workout. They split up in the store, because they had different things they wanted to look at. While he was in the store, he had a clerk basically following him around the store, while my sister was not similarly followed. When he went to pay with a credit card, they asked for 2 forms of ID. My sister was not asked for ID.

      If you think racism is dead, head to the deep south and you will seeit is not.

        Good reality check, Shawn.
