I appreciate your courage in bringing this "thorny" business up again. Your letter was obviously written after lots of deep thinking and personal introspection.
Even though some people can get weary of the struggle, I think that the subject of racism needs to be revisited again and again and again until all sides come to a greater understanding of each other and we learn to come up with good solutions to overcome it.
It's possible that racism will always be with us in one form or another. But how do we know whether we can someday feel better about each other unless we try.
Thanks for speaking out and sharing your thoughts and perspective on this and for recognizing that your perspective is influenced - as is everyone's- based on your life experiences, class, race, gender nationality etc...etc...
