Thank you

July 7, 2006 by Tim

Emails regarding this subject, on both sides of the fence and from dozens of different points of view and backgrounds, are coming in faster than I can keep up with them. Agree with me or not, I just want to thank everyone for writing in to express your particular opinion, and though I may not be able to respond to all of these emails, I enjoy reading the different points of view and counters to my argument.

In closing, I want to reiterate that I am not suggesting that we forget slavery happened. Or that racism exists. And certainly not that abolishing racism is as simple as “not making a big deal over race”. There are going to be ignorant people out there, angry people that use race as a vehicle for their hate. However I do feel that the sooner more people stop being overly sensitive to race, the sooner that mentality will dwindle generation after generation. Constantly being sensitive over race is just a constant reminder that we’re different. Perhaps we should focus more on the many ways in which we’re similar.
