    My roomate back in college grew up believing that african americans were born with tails that got chopped off shortly after birth. I don't know when he found out the truth, but I wish I had been there when it happened :-) He was born and raised in Louisiana; I dunno if racism is bad there or not.
    • Racism is something that should be discussed if nothing else.

      Do you think racism exists any less now, or is it just not mentioned?
      • Hmm I guess I feel like it certainly isn't as socially acceptable as it used to be (at least in things like the popular media). It certainly still exists, and yeah I guess to some extent I think it is starting to be ignored. Then again since I am a white male living in a pretty tolerant state (New Mexico) I can't say a whole lot from personal experience.
