I'd say we live in a less-racial society, but we're far from being post-racial.
This weekend, I saw Finian's Rainbow
for the first time. We don't have near the level of racially motivated behavior that's presented in that play/show.
However, yesterday I also watched a show called "What Would You Do?" It's a hidden camera sort of show, and it is presented as a kind of social experiment. They set up a scenario and let the cameras roll as everyday people come across the scenario. One of them was a person at a bike, with a saw and bolt cutters. This person claimed that they had misplaced their bike key or that they didn't have it with them for some reason. Three different people were put into this scenario: a white man; a black man; and a white, physically attractive girl. Granted, we can't be sure that the footage shown is truly representative of what happened throughout the filming, but the white guy had about as many people helping him as accusing him of trying to steal the bike, the black guy had almost everyone treating him like a thief, and the girl had almost everyone helping her out.
Granted, this is a "study" that's not very scientific at all, but it may illustrate some racial biases that a lot of people experience, whether it's conscious or not.
the forums keep needing me to relog after what seems like a few minutes. ive tried posting this question 3 times now and it always boots me back to login screen when i hit the submit button. so this is the short version i guess.
had to come back and actually edit in my question so i wouldnt lose the post! why is this happening?!?!?!
EDIT: I apparently missed actually having the answer in here. This may seem like a silly question, but do you have the check box marked that will keep you logged in? If not, you should do that. If you're worried about staying logged on at a work computer, you might consider logging on in a private window.

They are starting to do that now.
Bernie Sanders was in a virtual tie with Hillary Clinton at the Iowa Caucus, which is a lot better than a lot of people though he would do.
And Donald Trump was second among Republicans (in a virtual three-way-tie among the top three candidates). He is not happy. Apparently someone also nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize? That strikes me as very odd.
This might be a silly question, but do you check the box that will keep you logged on? If not, maybe you should. If you're worried about staying logged on after you're done, you could log on in a private window.
