Do we need a national discussion on race? How about one right here? #princegeorges

Almost every day we see something on the internet now. Still do we all see it the same?

Last week the Washington Post ran this story: When white friends don’t believe what blacks go through, they’re not friends

Today CNN ran this story: 'Django Unchained' actress defends not giving ID to cop

Blacks are tired of talking about it as the CNN reporter who just wanted to warn people so they don't get into trouble (not a bad idea because they will get into more trouble than Daniele), but in the report, it almost looks like she didn't understand why Daniele put herself out to show what is happening in this country.

Will white people talk with black people about race? Yes, they do at A Dialog on Race and Ethnicity, which will be held again on the 2nd Fri., Oct. 10. Bring your friends of any race or ethnicity.
