Racism's Second Wind

For many decades, it seemed as if we were making progress against prejudice and towards achieving equal opportunity for people of different races, religions, and cultural backgrounds. But recent events raise the question: have we made real progress or did we just sweep the problem under the rug by silencing the advocates of racist ideologies? The discussion around racism ranges from overt and disruptive movements like Neo-Nazism, to ideas expressed in covert and coded language like "ethnic nationalism", to legitimate questions of privilege and how persisting historical inequality should be addressed today. Have we made real progress in the past fifty years? Will the rise of racism continue or will it fade away? How can we discuss questions of race with respect and objectivity? Where do we go from here?
