Conversations on Race

Race is a topic that often evokes a series of emotions which make it most uncomfortable to discuss openly. The word racist is too often carelessly attributed on both sides of the fence, and the issue is rarely seen as an opportunity for growth. The lack of meaningful opportunities for exchange and understanding make positive movement as a society at best difficult. I believe if we could see the discussion as one where both sides would benefit from actual hands on exchanges there would be an even playing field that would allow people to bee seen as individuals rather than stereotypes. Every culture because of their heritage and experiences has a great deal to offer to the future of our society. It is time to view every issue of race not merely as who is most at fault, but rather what can we gain by reaching out and listening to diverse voice?
