I Think America Is Long Overdue For a Frank Discussion On Race

RULES--no emotional outbursts, blaming or name calling 111 People

    It Helps.

    About 75% of white parents don't talk to their kids about race. To be honest, a ton of people don't talk to their kids about race. And they should. If no one tells them, they just have to figure it out on their own. They watch the way institutional and societal oppression acts in...

    The Guilded Era Never Really Died Out... We Just Pretend It Did.

    No matter if you believe in the Big Bang Theory, that we all evolved from apes, or that we were made in the Image of God, one thing is for certain.  We all no matter our race, came here or came to be a breathing life form the same way as everyone else did.  Race...

    My Perspective

    First of all, kudos to you Roaring20's for creating this group! I must say that with much embarrassment, that racism is very much alive and well here in the south. I currently live in the mountains and I can't begin to tell you the extent to which this vile poison that is called...
