The post below is a really interesting post about how (and why) life for black people in America has gotten worse in many ways for black people since the 50's and 60's. I had never really read this blog, but I will now. In the post, he talks about how he encourages both blacks and whites who see these problems to engage in a civil discourse about what they see and ways to make it better without automatically saying that it is about racism. It definately make me think about alot of conversations Sir and I have had and all the ones I hope we have in the future.
Oh, and in case you missed it on Fark, really REALLY cool article about one of my favorite musical entertainers, a great musician and an awesome person--http://www.lsj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060414/COLUMNISTS09/604140348/1007/ARCHIVES
