Our goal was to examine the concept of racial literacy. America still has a difficult time confronting -- and even speaking about -- issues of race.
My goal is to examine the concept of racial literacy. Race should not be a taboo topic to be avoided in everyday dialogue. Rather, I believe we can only improve race relations by learning to ask -- and speak -- more respectfully about each other's race.
Even if you don't use racial slurs and don't have a prejudiced bone in your body, speaking about race is not easy. It's time we did more to improve everyone's racial literacy.
