No, racism didn't die in 1964 with that law, but time has went on and i'd say the large majority of people have adjusted or changed.
I think giving scholarships based solely on race is as bad as denying them to people because they were back, because like it or not, that's still racism.

Forgot to add, most of the grants/scholarships for minorities aren't necessarily based on color, but location/other socioeconomic factors.
Have you heard of Appalachians being a minority, because they are. Yes, they're ethnically white, but like other minorities they were disenfranchised and marginalized by the same people who did this to Black people.
Merit alone does not get people what they want, sometimes people need a hand up. If things were obtained purely based on merit, every person who wanted to be an actor/rapper/pimp/singer/<insert occupation here> would be the cream of the crop. But we all know this isn't true.

As someone whose experienced racism on at least 6 occasions with 4 of them being in the shitstain of a state I like to call Ohio, I'd be willing to say that not many have changed, it just was "swept under the rug" so to speak.
Without assistance I wouldn't have been able to attend college, let alone get a good job in today's economy. My mother, who had 5 children, had no way to pay for in-state tuition. Also my major was not taught in any of the local community colleges so the closest place I could study at without taking more than I needed was at Ohio State.
It's like telling people "Go get a job, pull yourself up by your bootstraps", then saying when they're unable to do so by means available to them that "It's their own fault". Hence, it's keeping the poor poorer, compounded with the fact that they wouldn't be there had there not been a structured system beforehand keeping them down.
I'm just saying, before you think it's racism, understand why it's there in the first place; it's just as racist/prejudice to be totally dismissive of what people have to go through because of how differently you may view things.

I've always been taught that a comma is always needed when using "and" as a conjunction (along with the other FANBOYS). I also meant that if you take "and" out, the rest of the phrase after where "and" was would be an independent clause.
"You realize that your grammar is better than 99% of the American citizens."
If the phrase before "and" was also an independent clause like it should have been, then the comma would have been necessary because it would be connecting two independent clauses with "and" as the conjunction. It would have been a comma splice if "and" hadn't been there.
