    people are of less value.

    I know someone from Texas who grew up a child during Jim Crow who thinks racism is gone. I think she thinks that because, compared to what she saw in childhood, it is much better. She lacks the perception and the deeper connections with Black people to be able to tell. Or she defines racism wrong...ie only blatant, legislated racism of the past counts for her. She is wrong.
