That's why is absolutely crazy to say racism is out of control today.  Compared to the past, there is hardly any racism left.  Can we get better? Sure. Are we exponentially better today than we were in the past? Without a doubt.

I can't wait for all the 20-30 year old woke judges to have kids that are going to be raised by them and call them racists/nazis/fascists/etc. in about 30 years because of their beliefs today.

One of my black buddies, dean of engineering at a university, made an interesting point.  He's Caribbean black- he said if the USA was still so racist, how would the BLM rioters have been treated in 1930 or 1960 vs. 2020?
