    that racism never disappeared, but based on my experience, it subsided a great deal in the intervening years. The previously loudmouthed bigots, for whatever reasons, seemed to tone down their opinions when out in public.
    But after 9/11, it seemed acceptable to once again be as vocal as you wanted, and there were few very repercussions. It started with announcing your hatred toward Muslims, then Middle Easterners in general, and after a while, moved back to all brown skinned people.
