Racism is real, the darkness awaiting the light of a better understanding. Misunderstanding, misapprehension--these foster darkness and chaos. In the small flicker of light available to us, we see blacks and whites in tunnel vision throwing verbal stones at each other. Reason says, lower your voices, lower your hands . Then raise your level of consciousness, solve the problems. Naysayers, of course, are endemic. They go with the tunnel, speaking in the monotone of racial stereotyping.
