Lionel Richie grew up in segregated Alabama and once unwittingly drank from a whites only fountain. Does racism still exist in Alabama today?
  • Yes, racism still exists.

    Racism still exists because racism is everywhere, whether we think it is or not. Racism has existed for a while, and will most likely continue to exist for many years. Plus, people stereotype. This is in our nature. We, as humans, stereotype whether we are consciously thinking about it or not.

  • Not just in Alabama

    It isn't only Alabama where racism is still happening. It exists everywhere in this country, whether we like to admit it or not. The rift is still extremely large, and we have a lot of work to do to get to a place where we can say that racism isn't relevant anymore. Unfortunately, Alabama is a great example of a place where this racism is even worse.

  • Yes, racism still exists today.

    Unfortunately, racism still exists in America today. Thankfully though, racism is not nearly as severe as in the past. Many in our society still experience discrimination: minorities, women, LGBT disabled and immigrants. These groups still face unfair stigmas and stereotypes. America is making great strides in improving the quality of life for all.

  • People have stereotypes.

    Today, people have stereotypes that they still pass on to later generations. Racism is a very deep thing. It's must easier to just call someone a name than get to know them. Unfortunately, racism still exists everywhere, not just in the south. Look at all of the police brutality that exists today against minorities as proof.

  • Yes, racism probably still exists in Alabama.

    Yes, racism probably still exists in Alabama. Alabama is not the most advanced and progressive of states so racism is probably more prevalent there than it is in most other states. In fact, racism in Alabama is probably second only to racism in Mississippi if it is not worse. Racism still exists everywhere though.
