Mensagem:  Hi Miguel, Well, I don't plan to become narrow-minded! Thanks for the compliment, but I think my mental outlook is no more than what should be expected from everyone. I guess a lesson to be learned from all this is: There may be grains of truth to many stereotypes, but the exceptions probably outnumber the "grains". There is no doubt that overt racism was strong in the south until the civil rights movement. The college-age generation in the south at that time (my parents age), finally began to seriously question the way they were raised. I don't mean to say there isn't "covert" racism now, because of course there is - but not more than in the north, as I know from direct experience. The real problem for America now are the quiet and unspoken prejudices.
