tumblr_m7b15i78Gd1qzzz7ao1_500A few months ago, a really nice young man said that I was a color-blind racist. I was stunned. When I told people about that, they were equally stunned. Granted they were white too, so I had to wonder what in my unconscious attitudes might have made him say that to me? Thus began many months of research for articles on all sides of the subject, most of which are full of vitriol. I often came away from reading them with a sick stomach and a sore heart. I didn’t give up though. I kept going until I found some answers to my emotional turmoil about it. These are some of the best articles. I have ten pages of sources in addition to these. If you are interested, let me know and I’ll email you the list.
