Just when I feel like we've come "a long way baby" we drop back two steps. Racist remarks go flying through the air as if no one will notice. To me it doesn't matter if they were public or private statements, the fact that people still carry these prejudices boggles my mind. I've always worked under the premise that if we were made inside out then we'd realize we are all the same (darned ugly but you get the idea). The coat of paint on your car doesn't make it any better it's what's inside that counts.
