Do you believe society will ever truly overcome racism?


I do. However, I think the answer to making this happen is roughly my approach to encouraging it: simply not voicing the racist bullshit that you grew up with, and letting it die with you. I may occasionally think racist bullshit- but I'd really love for it to not live longer than me, which is why I try to avoid saying it.

Here's where the tone argument comes in, I'm quite sure.
  • Which society, and which racism? Racism as a coherent movement--with mission statements, platforms, official spokesmen, candidates for office, etc.--has been dead in the US for decades. Racism as in people hating people for stupid reasons, that's never going away, or not until we evolve much better pattern-recognition hardware, anyway.
