Reason and Whiteness
Apparently, that’s the magic bullet! Reason not emotion! And just how reasonable are those white folks across the aisle or in the same room when discussing race? And it is so historically classic to have a “discussion” about race without people of color in attendance or so few, or perhaps just one individual, to discuss that so-called common ground, as if any existed, to solve the racial divide that exists between people of color and the almighty whitey in our land.
Thank you John Metta for your piece. I would love to say that your expression of the facts will change our collective experience, post haste, but I am emotional realist and my many decades in this world clearly points to a very far and distant resolution to this endemic reality in America.
