    Bigotry among white Americans has been driven to the margins of society.

    As a white person mingling among white folks - that has not been my anecdotal experience.

      as a white person, you may rarely be privileged to hear the conversations about whites that blacks have.
      we've got hundreds of years of ingrained antagonistical cultural differences. If one can't speak openly, as Shirley Sherrod did, about overcoming prejudices, there's not a lot of hope.

      I highly recommend the movie about Chess Records, "Cadillac Records", as an entertaining yet insightful look at some of the issues surrounding the interactions between races.

      It's hard to address racism when there is such a concerted effort to deny that racism even exists.
