Is it possible to have a productive discussion on race relations


Is it possible for articulate and intelligent members of the White, Black, and Hispanic race to discuss the racists feelings felt by many without verbally attacking someone.

    Good point! I think discussion is productive when you don't have the expectation of having someone agree with you. Maybe the first thing to do is state an objective. Maybe, I just want to share my perspective? It has to be with someone who cares.

    Sri T, Unfortunately I must agree with you. It drives me nuts to read an article then see comments that have nothing whatsoever to do with the article. They add absolutely nothing to a productive discussion. Thank you for your comments Sri T!

    The majority of people simply...........AIN'T READY..........(Yes, I know better than to say ain't but I am using the 60s colloquialism indicating that some people just aren't ......well, ready)

    Some in mixed-race marriages call their spouses racial epithets when angry. I can't figure that one out. I don't think people should apologize for what others have done. When you care about someone you should care about how they feel.

    I agree Tori. It is a discussion a person should want to have and not be made to discuss. The sad thing is that avoidance does not promote better relations. Aw! It sounds like you are open.

    I wish I lived near you. I would love to ask all kinds of questions about South Africa. Marvin Jenkins, musician who has passed away, said he had to lie on the floor when riding in South Africa because Blacks were not supposed to ride with whites.
