Pretty much anyone old enough to answer this question on this board, type, read, and understand what racism is, has experienced racism. Especially in America, England, and other large world powers. This being said the bigger a nation the worse this is, and America is the biggest. How ironic, racism is here, when the ideology that we were founded on is supposedly against such things.

Anyway, yes. Racism should diffidently be accepted. I hate it personally, but guess what! Even ignorant bigots have the freedom of opinion, choice, religion, and heck even expression of those opinions. I wish people would be smart enough to realize the obvious flaws to racism, and they are there rather they accept it or not, but they are welcome to believe whatever [email protected] thing they want. Rather you, or I, or anybody else likes it or not.

So, sorry Oprah, as much as I like you, people have the right to hate you for being fat, black, and female.

Plus, we all know that there is nothing wrong with racism against whites! It’s completely alright. Racism is only wrong when it’s against blacks, Mexican and other Hispanics, and so on. Same with Sexism. It’s okay to be sexist against men. Not women. Not the same with sexual preference. Nobody makes fun of straights, but we’re always at Gays. (Well, Chris Crocker makes fun of straight people, but he's a crime against homosexuals and humanity soo... Well, look him up on youtube and you'll see what I mean. His opinions mean jack to me.) Religion is kind of similar, because it’s fine to call Christian sects ridiculous but not the atheist group or witches or Goths or wickens. This being said the Muslims get it worse than we do, and the Jews get it worse than they do so…

Anyway, it’s completely acceptable on all political levels, though it should certainly be frowned upon on a social level.

P.S: Racism is too funny. Example:
Once you turn white...a trailer's in sight!

Once you turn black...your babies on crack!

So there!

I have to disagree w/ Seraph. I don't think racism should be accepted, even diffidently. If it happens, we should take measures to correct it, not overlook it. Yes, people may have the freedom to think what they like, but I don't agree that they should have the freedom to be ignorant, stupid fucks.

As for asking whether it should be accepted in this so-called "technologically adavanced era", what the heck does that have to do w/ anything? I don't think racism is acceptable in any era, whether it be primitive as hell or technologically advanced.

I think it should be accepted as an opinion, but not as actions.

Racism should never be accepted, no matter what nation.
Yes, America is big and is full of people who still practice racism but it shouldn't be acceptable anywhere. And I'm from the South so I can say that. but still... it's stupid and wrong. in every way.

Maybe the title should be changed to discrimination? Because people are talking a lot about sexism, homophobia, and religious tolerance.

Honestly, racism makes me sick. We are all humans. But what Seraph said is basically true. Racism does fall under freedome of speech. But I also think it could go under a form of hate crime. Racists are people with weak hearts. But what makes me even sicker is when people play the race card. When people try and make themselvs a victim, then it's like they premote racism on themselvs.

I absolutely hate racism. My father is racist and whenever he makes a racist comment I feel absolutely disgusted that someone could say those things abut someone just because of their race. He pisses me off so much. He will make a racist comment anytime he sees a person of that race.
