It should not be about race.
In Sam’s most recent podcast, [samharris.org], he talks about the current situation in our country with all the protests and riots and, IMHO, he outlines the situation very well. It would seem to me that we are faced with a number of challenges and unless we are willing to have open, civil and honest conversations about what is happening we will be in this maelstrom of conflicting video clips and comments expressing the most extreme views, on both the left and the right, to prove some point pulled way out of perspective. The real crisis is about being human, treating others with respect and decency. Too often expressed ideas are met with profanity and no substance. Seems like making a noise is more important than open conversation with a willingness to at least understand a different point of view. Agreement would be nice but is not essential. If we can understand each other's concerns it makes it easier to reach a place of simple decency and consideration.
