1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.

2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

We were up to our necks yesterday reading articles about the current battle of words (or word, in this case) taking place on the political circuit. Today we discovered Brad Paisley's Welcome to the Future video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JAH_V3gb5c.

Although discussed from two very different perspectives, they have the same underlying message of "race and racial harmony or disharmony is vastly different than in the past."

We of course are curious about your thoughts behind racism as it is today.

Does racism still carry the same social stigma?

Are people still offended and hurt at the thought of being labeled a racist?

Please share some stories about your personal experience with this subject.
