Another important contribution. I don't have mainstream TV so maybe that's why I'd never seen "The Talk" before. But I remember other "talks" you reference. Sometimes I feel I'm on the cusp of despair and hope. Despair when I read of another hate crime outrage as reported in the WAPO this morning, hope when I realize that the current racial protest and unrest has not had the usual two-week half life of other demonstrations and maybe there will be some reckoning, some awakening this time as we move into the new movement's second month. Your writing certainly moves us in that direction.
