Race – A Four Letter Word
Blank stares. Silence. Incoherent sentences. What is Race? Is it just a color?
Just saying the word “Race” conjures up thoughts and feelings not usually in the conscious mind. The mind links Race to color, bringing up what we were taught, have seen, have heard and have experienced.
Conversations about Race are usually charged with emotions. At least one person must remain calm and focused on what the dialogue is hoping to achieve, as tempers quickly escalate and people become more and more uncomfortable.
