Two generations after you start that program, racism will mostly be gone. Guaranteed. Whether most of want to admit it or not, military barracks were really a kind of poly relationship. We shared partners. It's just one big dramatic relationship with lots of sex, drinking, and partying. I can't think of a better way to shake the racism out of somebody than that.

At least as many negative consequences arise from politically correct attempts to curb racism in our language and our public lives as from racism itself. I would rather have racism unmasked than have it dance around in politically-minded coded language.
The very idea of ending racism is a relic of the baby boomers from their 60s anti-establishment action and their 90s establishment action. It was never that sincere anyway.
So let people act racist if they want to. Let businesses and institutions discriminate however they see fit.
I'm just tired of all the politically correct bullshit.

If the Media and society does not do enough to curb racism then people may begin to think that it is acceptable and OK, and practice it more often.

And why not let people be openly racist? Are you afraid that racism could outcompete more multiethnic attitudes about life and society?

"Well.. if you are going to be truly tolerant and multicultural, then you have to accept racism, else you are intolerant of people and their beliefs." Perfection...................Do you mean people who make claims in support of moral relativism, or people who demolish moral relativism by pointing out the contradictions and absurdities?
