Racism towards blacks is not limited to the South. Yes the South has the legacy of slavery, but the slave ships sailed from Boston and New York where blacks have not been treated well even up to recently. And the South had the legacy of the Jim Crow laws which were a result of the failure of reconstruction policies forced upon the South by the federal government after the freeing of the slaves. And the South has the legacy of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, just turns out there were as many, if not more, members in Northern states. I personally believe racism is a human quality that all people have to some degree or another all over the world. The more intelligent ones can recognize it for what it is and make the effort to over come it.
