Additionally, maybe it's because I happen to live in the liberal north east, but so many of your examples seem so 1980's. As a white person, most of the white people I know and interact with feel as though we walk on egg shells trying to make sure nothing we do can be construed as racist or offensive, and the problem with this is that it leads to stilted and dishonest conversations about race and differences. That said, even in the hyper-vigilant culture where I live, I percieve that bias against Muslims and obese people slip in with disturbing frequency.
