Not as far as whe know, but there are people who would like to make fun of you and tell everyone, and there are those hard core Jesus funs who will look down on you like there is something wrong with you, and ofcorse people will find you weird, its just because the people whos closest idea aboat what magic is is what they had read in the bible or seen on tv are not likely to understand what is a which so resulting in the what is above, but people mostly are afraid of that what they dont understand so...
Watch who you tell. While countries like America don't have people being killed for witchcraft, people are still being killed in other parts of the world. In America [for example] you can face a lot of discrimination. Tell friends and family if you feel they will understand, but don't tell random strangers to be safe. It's no ones business but your own what you belief.
simple thing is they won't kill you if they catch you, not unless the rest of your family have practiced and they have it out for you specificly ... my family has many practitioners and i have had ancestors killed in the past (not my life time) and molested (recently)
be careful who you tell, if you practice white most won't even care but the dark stuff like summoning grinds there gears ... in australia there are small communities still

Nekoshema is correct. While I have seen news reports about witch killings in the U.S. They are rare and almost nonexistent. However outside the U.S. there are still with hunts occuring on a daily basis. In south america and africa especially, as far as I've heard. So, It would be best to take caution in the presence of religious fanatics.
While in more civilized countries like US and Great Britain there's really no worry in being "hunted" unless you take to digging up graves or other things that would be seen as breaking the law. Then they'll come after you but more for the law than actually practicing.
Yet in other countries around the word, Africa and the Middle East especially, people are still being killed because they're "witches". I put it in quotes because most people see these attacks as shams against people. It's usually against a woman and is actually covering up something else. It's appalling the treatment of women in those regions - witch or not.
What you have to worry about here is people thinking you're a bit crazy or that the Devil possessed you. If people give you trouble because of that, just keep quiet for a while. It'll pass.
Actualy in africa people arent being killed for being witches, infact in the most underdeveloped parts and tribes of africa they are highly respected, but there you could be killed for being wight (because they assume that wight people automatically have big money on them) there are some places in africa where witches are being hunted, but thats mostly where there is some connection to the aotside world because they get told that witches are bad, but in most of africas underdeveloped parts witches are highly respected, and many of the underdeveloped towns have a town shaman or witch or whatever who are the most respected people in the town for being healers or spirit contactors or whatever (you people who said that there witches are being hunted should take more of a intrest in what goes on in the rest of the world, it would be the same as if I said that all Americans are self centered lazy softies, where I am from thats a popular balive but I dont know that for myself so I don't tell that to people because I haven't checked for myself)
