Mr. Carpenter suggests Rita Dunaway and Douglas Wright watch certain movies and plays, read black authors. These activities maintain distance. I believe it is much more beneficial to interact with multiracial friends, family, and acquaintances, learn their histories, hear their stories.

I have the pleasure of having Cuban immigrants (from 25 years ago) as neighbors next door and just around the corner, a terrific African/American family and also Polish-Americans, etc. etc. and it has been a joy interacting with all of these fine people. We all enjoy our America as it is. That doesn't mean there are times some tweaks could occur...But not a liberal overhaul!

A very practical suggestion Ms. Evick, requiring no coercion.[thumbup]
