Watkins, Salon Editor at Large, relates a recent encounter and says “Memo to white people: If you’re still this uncomfortable talking about race, you’re not helping.” 1 Comment spirit13finder on January 4, 2017 at 3:47 pm When we are uncomfortable talking about race, it is because we are avoiding the truth about how we feel. It is easy to blame your parents and society for ingraining racism from childhood.
