    Harper Lee has died.  Do you think she "told the truth" about racism?

    Harper Lee, the legendary author of "To Kill a Mockingbird," and recently "Go Set a Watchman" has passed away at 89 years old.  Many people held her works as second in literary importance only to the Bible.

    Racism is too complex an individual, interpersonal and sociopolitical phenomena for me to know what "the" truth is. I think Mockingbird told a lot of truths, not just about racism, but about human nature: growth from innocence to maturity, gender, xenophobia, scapegoating, justice, mob mentality, compassion and heroism.

    Don't know, Bro.

    I started her second book. I struggled. No slur on her. For 33 years I have read books that expressed longing for God. Still, she inspired many, so Harper Lee, God bless your life of creativity and inspiration. R.I.P.
