The following clip calls in question the notion that we now live in a "post-racial America." No doubt, we've made progress against the evil of racism. But racial animus is far from dead in this nation.
As we work in neighborhoods, with community institutions and among low-income persons, we must not forget the negative, destructive power of racism and hatred. Racist actions, statements and attitudes serve only to destroy authentic community.
In addition, we must work hard to improve the tone and tenor of civic discourse. We don't have to hate those with whom we disagree.
I look forward to your reactions after you've watched.
