  •  Could the surge of visible racism (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    not this time

    be also linked to the usage of social media?  I learned sometime ago that what people write and what they are willing to say face to face can dramatically differ.  At the same time I am shocked at the ulgy name calling,  the lack of respect and the blatant use of raw language that now seems to be publically acceptable more so in the past five years.  There seems to be a total disregard for respect and actual self control in what is said or what type of unacceptable behavior in public is almost applauded.  We seem to have lost touch with common sense, and any type of sensitivity to our fellow human beings.  Somewhere along the line our public figures have demonstrated a need to throw racism out there, and it has given permission for these prejudices to be flaunted with no shame.
