Racism in the States: Would you believe it?

You may know about the very conservative radio advice giver, Dr. Laura Schlessinger.  She pretty much outdid even her quite mean self in a recent response to a woman calling for advice.  There’s been quite a bit of discussion, and I found a longish piece on CNN that seems quite decent.  One aspect of it I like is the way in which a number of comments come back to the effects today of racist comments.  Being the stereotypically questionable or strange group creates a toll, we have pointed out before, independent of any overt discrimination.

Looking for the CNN clip, I found one of the incomparable Richard Pryor; that’s the second one below.
