I'm guessing that by "our society today" we are speaking of occidental culture (probably strictly US-based). If that's the case, it will take some substantial effort to show that this is still the case without devolving to fallacious paralleling of 'equality of opportunity' with 'equality of outcome' or treating pockets of social bigotry as supposed evidence of anything genuinely 'systemic'.
Hold on...you are the initiator. I appreciate your deference, but the entire point of debates is to begin with at least some thorough construct of your premise. I realize you may consider the topic to be a non-issue (which would be perplexing as to why you felt compelled to initiate it as a debate topic), but the point here is to offer point and counterpoint.
Presumably you have something to offer as an initial argument for why racial equality (defined specifically by you as "[denying] people equal rights") exists apart from "Well, duh!".
In order for me to respond, I'd hope there would be something of substance to respond TO.
