Not talking about Frog Balls, Arkansas here. Which of our biggest and most important cities also breeds the most racism? I have heard Boston is very notorious for racism, Chicago is officially the most segregated by far of the major cities and that Chicagoans of all ethnicities are very covertly or "closet" racist, and Phoenix has been known recently for racism against immigrants.

Chicago, New York, Milwaukee and Detroit are the most segregated areas in the country. Chicago is pretty bad when it comes to racism. The others probably aren't too great either. In fact, this whole country is very racist. It is what it is.

While I agree with your post, our country is not nearly as racist as many other countries, including those in Europe.

It is what it is? You may want to examine that bit of devine wisdom as it applies to racism.

Now their kids and grandkids teach that brand of racism and it comes to confrontational levels in stores and busses, El trains, etc

People today still complain St. Louis is still too segregated. Been that way since the civil war as Stl is a border city.
