I've heard everything from "Not at all" to "Walk in here, and you'll get lynched".
Both of which i know are not true.

Recently one of my friends got attacked in California by white supremacists.

I just wanted to know what the consensus was on this...?

Certainly better than some parts of the world.

edit: We have our cases of hate crimes, but I'd say that a majority of the racism in the states is passive.

It's not that bad in Florida. That's about as south as you can get. From my experiences up north, it seemed just as bad as it is in TN. Maybe a little more passive.

I use racism as a form of comedy, but that's about it.

And yes, I'm white, but I was born and raised in Atlanta, so technically, I'm black.
You know, you're probably reading this saying "Hey, I'm bored, maybe this'll be funny?"
It's not. Too bad. No, I am not refunding you those 6 seconds of your life. So :P

I've never actually met anyone that's militantly racist. I've met some people who flat out didn't like black people, but they seem to keep to themself about it

Not nearly as much as there was 40 years ago. A lot more than there will be 40 years from now.
Yes there are areas where you don't want to be alone and white or alone and black. Those areas are shrinking in size.

Racism goes both ways in America and it all depends on where you travel. In the Midwest and the North, I would say it's probably not much of an issue. Same for the West. In parts of the South and Southeast, it is more prevalent. And like I said, it goes both ways. As a white, if you end up in the wrong neighborhood or area, you could find yourself in trouble. Same for a black who ventures into the wrong territory. The only problem is, the media tends to focus on whites being racist and tend to forget that it also goes the other way. Are either of them right? No.

We all bleed red blood. Learn to get along and coexist. Will that ever happen? Probably not.

Honestly, I think they're treating smokers in the States more unfairly than any 'race'.

That's what seems to be getting worse.

Michigan, particularly south east Mi. is as racist as any KKK rally.

Yeah, I had just heard that a couple of days ago. Don't remember where. And you're bound to find some pockets of racism no matter where you travel throughout the U.S. It's just not going to be as pronounced as it is in the South and Southeast.

Has a smoker ever had a huge cigarrette stuck in his front yard and burned while the neighbors looked on in horror?

you know, I never got harassed in school because I was fat. I got shit because I was light skinned and part black. people seriously hated the fact that my dad was black, and would try to jump me/attack me (and fail, as I ran my fat ass the hell somewhere else), throw things at me, steal my stuff, talk shit... and that's in one of the more supposedly "liberal" areas.

from personal experience, I'd say it's still rather prevalent, though just not as blatant.

As for the south being more racist, i have an aunt (and her family) there who's never had any problems.
Ironically, the "friend" in the first post wasn't an immigrant. He's mexican and he's pretty much lived all his life in Cali.
And he got a gun pointed at him.

It's all relative really. Compared to the situation here in the netherlands, I'd say there's a lot of racism in america. When looking at the global average however, you guys aren't doing that bad I guess

Mexicans aren't very popular here either. Huge problems with them illegally crossing over the border and the U.S. goverment doing zippo about it.

Bullshit. There are pockets of racism everywhere but if you really think that America is as racist as England you're just wrong. The most racist organisation we have here is the BNP and legally they're not even allowed to be racist for christ's sake.

As an 18 year old in Houston, TX, I agree with you. They take any job that pays minimum wage, and leave me with no job experience and no chance of being able to snag anything that pays enough to sustain myself. But I don't think that's racist, I think that's just life. :/

Depending on where you are probably about on par with Europe (keeping in mind Europe can be pretty damned racist at times). America does seem to have more of a problem with racial violence but maybe that's just reported more than here.

Off topic, but a friend of mine got the shit beaten out of him for smoking near a sXe concert. It was a small venue and he was just walking down the street having a smoke. He walked by the door where a few people at the show were hanging outside, they got up in his face for smoking near the venue (though it's perfectly legal to smoke outdoors), then they started fighting. He wasn't purposely smoking in front of the venue either, he just happened to walk by on his way home from work with a cigarette.

Yea, you thought the old people in Florida were scary with their normally aspirated walkers...now they've got sequentially boosted wheelchairs. Good luck running from that.
