Well said. I'd add, though, that not all racism consists of the obvious slur-flinging that is easy to spot. There are other, more subtle forms that do indeed exist world-wide -- including here in the U.S. This can often be unconscious, too, manifested in such fashions as similar crimes being punished more harshly for one group, or funding for education being distributed in racially unbalanced ways. The people involved likely aren't intentionally treating one group different than another, but their own feelings are still influencing their decisions.These types of examples are much more difficult to spot, but no less damaging. Or at least I would argue so.
