Racism has been around for countless years, prejudice among those who are the same only separated by color. I very much do believe racism is still quite strong within some individuals, but as a society racism has proudly become looked down upon. It does still exist but not as extreme as racism in the past, where segregation, slavery, and violence was not something new or surprising. There will still be people today who agree with all of those, whether they grew up in that age or who grew up in an environment glorifying racism, but that doesn’t make it right. Racism is still around and will probably always be around, but things have changed, and for the better.
