Our Second Conversation - March 25, 2018

Thank you for joining The Conversation in Black and White. Our desire is to have honest conversations about race in a safe and friendly environment. Thankfully, the conversation is warming up rather than heating up!

In this blog you'll find some current events and discussions on race.

During the process please remember that we are moving toward our goal. We have not reached it but we are on the way and the process is a significant part of the strategy.

Our ICEBREAKER discussion on March 25th was a good conversation and good for the CONVERSATION. I've often heard in the secular realm to begin the conversation. I agree with that. Beginning the conversation is an important part of moving toward unity - and when it comes to Christians, racial reconciliation. Watching the movie SELMA together proved to be a good icebreaker and the responses to the questions that were provided made for a good CONVERSATION for our March gathering. We welcome those who joined the CONVERSATION in March. The CONVERSATION is a nine month conversation and there are some life-changing, transformational gems for those who stay the course.

You've got to be taught to hate and fear,

You've got to be taught from year to year,

It's git to be drummed in your dear little ear,

You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid,

Of people whose eyes are oddly made,

And people whose skin is a different shade,

You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,

Before you are six or seven or eight,

To hate all those people your relatives hate,

You've got to be carefully taught!

"You've Got To Be Carefully Taught" from the 1949 Rogers & Hammerstein musical SOUTH PACIFIC.
