I would venture to quip that if the views being expressed on this question were a reflection of how we think as a human species, 3/4 of the human adversarial interactive problems would be non existant. It is great to find people whose thinking and views have evolved to the extent where they peek inside our physical facade to find us, rather than simply jumping to the erroneous conclusion that we are that what their eyes beheld at first sight.

I think that people are starting to get past the external, especially race and color, especially the younger generations.  As they say, it takes 4 generations to make a change in society, and I can see why.  Even if the youngest generation wants to change something, the people in their 50's & 60's still control and influence things because they hold most of the political posts and own most of the businesses.

Think about it this way:

My grandparents grew up in segregated schools, so they grew up with little intimate contact with other races and only knew what they were taught about other races.  They also grew up in a culture where you were required to fit in and play certain roles.  A wife stayed home and cooked and cleaned and took care of the kids, and the man worked, and anyone who did not follow the cultural norms was out of place.  This generation has retired for the most part, but still has considerable influence on society through their advice and money holdings (for the rich ones).

My parents were probably around 5 years old when they desegregated the schools, and they grew up in a time where there was still a lot of discrimination and hate and misunderstanding between the races.  As they got older, they began to see that much of what their parents' generation had taught them about race was not true, because they actually interacted with other races, although on a limited level (i.e. when they were young is was socially unacceptable).  I think much of this generation has racist feelings, but knows they are wrong and suppresses themselves.  This is the generation that still runs things.

My generation grew up in desegregated schools and were taught that discrimination is not okay and we made friends with people of other races.  We see first hand that people are people because we have interacted with multiple cultures growing up.  This is the generation that is starting to make a place for themselves and is starting to become successful managers, politicians and business owners.

Th next generation is growing up in a society where they not only interact with different people of their own race, they also are interacting with more people of different cultures, thereby increasing their appreciation and respect for other people's cultures.  Plus the internet has shown them that the kids in India like their PS2 as much as the kids in the U.S., so they can't be that bad.  They see that kids are kids and people are people, and the internet is dissolving much of the close-mindedness of the previous generations.  :)  This generation is still learning how to be successful and while they are open-minded and not racist, they are still in school or still work for other people.

The world is changing.  The point of view you get will depend on the generation you are talking to.  And the older generations that still control things are not as net-savvy as my generation and the generation after me, so less of them are online.  What you are hearing is where the world is going, not where it is right now. :)
