Incredible as it may sound, racism in the US exists today as it did 75 years ago when Victor Fleming's Gone with the Wind opened on December 15, 1939.
In an interview with People, America's First Lady, Michelle Obama said: "I tell this story - I mean, even as the first lady - during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn't see me as the First Lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn't anything new."
