Serious Thoughts on race

Opinion leaders from the Dallas Fort Worth area are beginning to call for a new conversation about race.  If there are any white people out there who feel the same way I would love to hear from them.

Bob Ray Sanders, a columnist with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, says Americans need to start talking about race and the conversation needs to begin immediately. 

George Yancey, a professor of sociology at the University of North Texas, believes this conversation needs to begin in the Christian church.   I am currently reading Yancey’s, Beyond Racial Gridlock: Embracing Mutual Responsibility.  Yancey writes specifically for Christians.  His arguments appear to anticipate the common sense balance that characterized Barack Obama’s speech on race delivered in Philadelphia

Finally, Gerald Britt, a black pastor from Dallas, extends his argument that progressive Democrats shouldn’t be upset by Barack Obama’s invitation to evangelical pastor (and Proposition 8 supporter) Rick Warren.
