Thank you for writing this. I said in a recent article that black and white people need to communicate with each other because we really are ignorant about many things. I know of white women who are terrified of black men. I have a friend who would not ride a city bus because there are black men on it. I've had black, teenage boys help me find the right stop to get off at. The tone of dialogue you put forth here is what we need for change.
