James Baldwin: “by realizing first of all that the world is not white”

First, let me say good- Saturday- morning to you. I love your blog and particularly this post. I am sure that you are aware of the sensitivity related to the subject of race; that it is avoided unless one is assured the of sympathic reception by the other. If not we just yell just at each other.

I believe that there is a profound change happening and we have a choice on whether it will be peaceful or very violent. I hope for the former and do the little I can to make it happen.

A rare occasion is here for Whites to join in constructing a democratic, merit based society. Time to put meaningful laws in place that help and protect ALL. A state of true equality is attainable. We do not have to live as we are.
