    that you said that since she works in a factory, she probably works with some black and brown people. That in itself, depending upon the receiver, could be interpreted as being "racist", no?

    I do think that there is an institutionalized "We are better than you" thing going on, but it's not relegated to skin color. The rich feel they are better than the poor, the educated feel they are better than the uneducated, men are "better" and women are "the fairer sex", this country is better than that country, "real" black people are better than "Uncle Toms", northerners are better than southerners, and on an on.

    There are some that base it on race, sure, but the real ill is that we all tend to see ourselves as separate from everybody else.
