    Does Racism exists and why?

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     joanniebalon is a frequent video commenter on CNN iReport and CNN.com.
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    I grew up in Hawaii where being White was the exception. I enjoyed friendship with all Asian and Hawaiian ethnic groups. Later we moved to Kansas and since then I have married and raised two sons. As parents, we never really talked about racism, per se, just assumed our children would find something worthy in all people they met. If not, then maybe just avoid those people.

    Racism in America is getting better, but we have a long way to go.

    There will always be some form of racism. It is how many people react to an unknown person, especially if they are perceived to be threatening.
