Well, there's still tons of racism today. The only form of racism that's acknowledged in the mainstream, though, is racism against black people. There are tons of instances in which black people are racist against white people, Asian people, and Hispanic people, yet no one bothers to take a stand against it. It has gotten to the point where people will instantly accuse you of racism just for defending yourself against a black person if you're not black.
Anyway, I respect and appreciate the vibes of those days. Truly iconic. The music is uplifting and positive. No glorification of negative crap.
