For quite some time, I’ve kept my thoughts on the issues affecting minority communities around the country to myself.
Occasionally, I’ll share my thoughts with my wife or a close friend.
But mostly I’ve spent my time listening to understand and not to reply; to conversations on blogs, in the news media, on Facebook, etc.
I think I finally have a little better understanding of the various perspectives weighing in on the issues of which there are many.
Since writing is thinking on paper, I wanted to try to organize my thoughts and opinions on the subject.
