Do you think good-looking people receive special treatment? Is racial discrimination lessening or increasing in your opinion?

Russell states that looks aren't important and she would know best because she is a Victoria Secret model. I would make the claim that looks play a large part in today's society. Personal image relates to the deeper, underlying issue of racial discrimination and oppression.

    I would say in most cases good looking people are treated better. Racialism I think is dying out with the old dinosaurs of our time; some of the racialist attitudes of the elderly are incredible but even some of them have changed to a certain extent within their attitude.
