Racism still exists but it isn’t nearly as bad as it was 70 years ago. Back then black people did not even have the same rights as white people. Some discrimination that was very common for a black person to face back then was: they could not sit at the front of the bus, they could be denied service at a store because of their skin color, they went to jail longer than white people for the same crime, they were not allowed into politics, they could not vote (in the 1950s) and it was difficult to get a job because many businesses owners were white and would not hire black people. These are just few examples of things black people had to face a long time ago. Today black people pretty much don’t face any of these problems anymore. I think the best change to the issue of racism is that being racist is actually frowned upon now unlike back then.
