I think the amount of racism is the same...but the targets and way the racism is displayed has changed. I think, overall, we're going in the right direction. But the voices against this direction are also growing louder and gaining a lot of traction. This is the thing...it's not really a straight line or yes/no answer. We make progress in some areas, but have lost ground in other areas. Social media in particular is an area where common decency is almost disappeared for good...and there's one hell of an undercurrent out there of hate. And that's where things get very murky. Because there is little accountability, there are simple shit-disturbers milling about with the true anarchists and political saboteurs, so it's difficult to know how much of the shit flying around is true sentiment of the population. Some of it is political/power based, some of it is corporate/capitalistic based, some of it is old school hate...and some of it are immature folks just trying to get a rise out of people. Someone smarter than myself would have to sort out whether the pure hate has increased or decreased.
