In Response To: Re: Obama's Cherokee Heritage ()
Jim Crow allowed people to do bad things because it was either not against the law or because in certain regions the authorities refused to enforce the law. Jim Crow in that sense is essentially gone.
However, the Jim Crow that lives in people's attitudes still thrives. Indifferent or hostile attitudes are what you're up against and in most cases you don't even know who holds them.
