To mark the 50-year anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, we hosted a Google Hangout last Thursday to discuss race relations in America. We were delighted to have diversity consultant and veteran iReporter Omekongo Dibinga and Brown University Professor of Africana Studies Tricia Rose join us for what was a frank and enlightening discussion.
Thank you to all of you who shared personal stories and asked great questions during the Google Hangout. For those who weren’t able to catch the live roundtable, we encourage you to watch the video below and post your comments here on the blog. We look forward to keeping the conversation going.
I find it disappointing that when reporters ask the President of the United States questions, they cannot say, "Thank you Mr. President ...".
Brianna Keilar and Ed Henry show little respect to the country's President. If they could do better, perhaps they should run in the next election! I can only assume they are republican or racist?
You're assuming a lot KDavid and it makes you look like an idiot.
All I know is we have a group of African Americans that congregate on the corner. And play loud music every night. They have done this every night that I know of since 2010 and since the music bothers me I am called 'racist'. All of New Orleans is not the French Quarther and some neighborhoods want quiet.
My input is that I live in Palo Alto,CA, the so called capital of Silicon Valley, and I have found this city to be the most racist place I have ever resided. I am 62 years old and I was born during Jim Crow days in the South. I find Palo Alto to be just as racist in its own way. The problem is that everyone wants to hid the fact rather than confront it.
I think it's interesting that the dictionary used to define racism as an act that one who is in a position of authority inflicts one another based on race. Now that we have one from a minority in the ultimate position of authority, we have a revisionist definition that racism is an act that a white person inflicts on a minority.
