Discussing race with other political commentators, PBS commentator Gwen Ifill corrected one of her colleagues who said that everyone is "queasy talking about race." She said,
"..Black people aren't queasy talking about race; they are only queasy about talking about it with white people who are queasy about it..."
The bottom line: race is a difficult subject but we need to have a respectful yet frank dialogue about it confronting the subject head on without leaving devisive track marks behind. This Presidential season provides us with a golden opportunity and it would be a shame to waste it.
