I’ve been reporting on race for 40 years. Can we ever fix what’s broken?

“ For a large segment of black men in inner cities little has changed, and black men everywhere still bear the burden of too often being dehumanized and categorized as more violent, more dangerous, more deviant and less valued than their white counterparts.”

According to the FBI crime reports, African American men are statistically more violent, more dangerous, more deviant. Although this is more reflective of gender and socioeconomic status than race, which arguably isn’t a factor (perhaps cultural identity would be a more appropriate consideration). Still, we shouldn’t allow such statistics to present people as less valued or dehumanized.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
