FK, the article you linked reminds me of a story that came out during the election. If I recall correctly, a young White woman was canvasing door-to-door for the Obama campaign and came to the home of an older White woman. She asked the woman if she had decided who she'd be voting for in the upcoming election. The woman shouted back into the house to her husband, asking him who "we" were voting for. The husband shouted back, "We're voting for the n*****." The woman reportedly turned back to the canvasser, with a smile on her face and just as pleasant as you please, replied, "We're voting for the n*****."

No. Racism is not dead. It just has--and always has had--a very pragmatic side.
