From the start, I thought it would gain no ground, even after a few of the civil minded posters showed a little interest. I had some expectation of it catching the eye of certain posters. It has done well. I might add that my desired outcome has been achieved. It is wonderful to see so much dialogue on a touchy subject without the constant attacking of each thought. Many here think I am racist. I am not. I have lived a decent amount of time and have had some experiences that many here have not, especially dealing with the black/white issue. I know some would have a hard time accepting things such as being witness to cross burning's and being chased by Klan. Of going to school with Klan. Of being a teammate only on the field. I try to bring to the board a point of view from that experience but at times, I guess it is too much for some to handle.
You have done well with this. The topic is a major issue in our world today and deserves our consideration.
If we could get leaders to talk, express concerns and exchange idea's as you have on this subject, more could be done because all are involved and devoted to one cause
Understanding is key. If we know why people feel the way they do, we could understand more clearly their actions. We put ourselves in position to intervene possibly before we face the sad situations we often find staring us in the face. I really appreciate the putting aside of hostilities for this. It is good.
Gentlemen, and the rest of you,
