So far you guys have been talking about class structure. This is different than racism. The first is quite natural, with examples by the score to be found in the animal kingdom. Racism seems to me to be more an artificial construct. The two topics overlap when racism is made to support class structure. I can't say that I've ever been witness to racism in architecture, though I'm certain that a minority architect would have a different view of this. The fact that there are very few blacks in US architecture schools is not necessarily a sign of racism (by the schools).
When I was in college there was much debate about the "white" school and the "grey" school, but none about race.
