I have to say racism is a big problem in the USA, to the point that even some religious people are racist. I live in Utah where the majority are mormons and racism here is bad, of course you notice this if you are a minority or if you befriend a minority person. Otherwise, most mormons think utha is heaven.
my first year of college in Utah, one of my roommates (Caucasian) , started dating a man from Colombia. They got engaged and were very much in love. Both of them were mormons as well as their families. One day her family came to pay her a visit to let her know that if she didn't stop the wedding, they would not pay for her college tuition, food, room and board any longer. she had to choose between her man and her family. The family even contacted the bishop in the area to talk to her a about it. In the end , after a lot of conflict and many days crying, she agreed to stop the wedding. The family inmediately transfered her to another university in a different town far away. I was very upset about this family claiming to be followers of Christ when the truth is that they were just super racist. Of course, in their eyes, they saw no problem with this. years have passed and I have met many racist people in Utah who find no problem with harrassing minorities and then go to church the next day like nothing happened. The Level of hypocrisy and unconsciousness is shocking.
