Gene Demby of NPR’s Code Switch reports on “New data from the Pew Research Center [that] strongly suggests that . . . white people really are much less likely to talk about racial issues on social media.”  He quotes Monica Anderson, the lead researcher on the Pew Study, [who] “pointed to other surveys showing similar gaps in conversations about race in real-life settings. White people say they are also less likely to discuss issues of race offline.”

Talking about race will be the focus of the September Continuing Conversations on Race, which will be held on Tuesday, September 6, because of the Labor Day holiday.
