Why all the emphasis on racism?

I thought racism was the most easily debunked stereotype out there. I mean, the discrimination still exist, but isn't it "self evident" for everyone that racism is wrong?

Why can't we get over it?
Why can't we move on?

Aren't there more urgent issues necessiting our attention?
What is so singular with racism that the issue has to be treated alone?
Why not include sexism, agism, homophobia, xenophobia, etc. in the debates where we include racism?

Those are open questions...

I fled to chase dreams that I can't yet describe.
I wake up, shivers, I hope my dream wasn't you.
But son, your dad, it ain't me, it can't be.
