Adrienne Davis, 40, who runs a nutrition program for senior citizens, starts out talking about the future of our children and ends up discussing race.

The home of a Chinese-American city councilman was firebombed early Tuesday in what police are calling the fourth episode of racially motivated violence to strike Sacramento in 10 weeks.
