I think racism is very bad. Even though I don't know many racists... or any at all, we still think its funny to make racist jokes. Even some of the other races love to hear those jokes, you'd be suprised. But I think its also offensive, and you have to be careful what you say and do. But yes, I frown upon racism.

It's definitely alive. I don't know if I'd call it well. Just two weeks ago, I had a customer at my store I had to tell never to come back. She had an issue with me being hired in as management.. because I'm white. She called me every racial slur that you could call a white person. I've never been treated that way and didn't know how to react. I have never been fond of this woman, she's just one of those who rub you the wrong way. Even though I didn't like her, it had nothing to do with the color of her skin. I always went out of my way to be nice to her even though she wasn't my favorite person because if I didn't go out of my way to be nice, I wouldn't be nice at all. Racism sucks.
