I feel segregation is still quite active in our society. It's not racist or anything, it just seems that Asians are around Asians, Whites are with Whites Mexicans are with Meaxicans, and so on. Whole neighborhoods can be made of one wthnic group. I know any people have friends from other races, but still. I can walk into whole stores filled with Africans or Mexicans and I'm the only Asian. When I walk in I also get looked at by other people. I don't think they're being racist, I just think they aren't used to seeing other races. It may just be me, but I still see segregation in America it's just lacking the racism we saw in the 1950's.

Well I believe that is just what happens when people have common cultures, they enjoy the familiar. For example, it is 2010 and we still see nearly all black churches. It isn't a bad thing necessarily and it isn't enforced to be all black, they just happen to be all black and they do quintessentially black things. Also, stores may be filled with asians because it is an asian store. Maybe they sell asian favorites or things like that. I don't believe it is racist to have specialized cultural groups. But as for racism, it is still pretty strong in some areas. In many places, because of socio-economic standings, black and white parts of towns still exist.

there is forced segragation and self segragation both are bad for the world. But one is less than the other one. if you cannot feel relaxed with others then it is a little bit racist.
