  1. Thanks for heart touching essay, I have experienced couple of instances where people shown racism on nationality, color. Racism is still challenging issue in most of the countries today. By no means is racism as overt as it was fifty years ago with enforced segregation, but today racism is more covert and often hides behind closed doors to only strike out when least expected. We can expect racism will continue to decrease only through education.

  2. i’d be interested in having you speak at our church if you would. I don’t know how you feel about religion. what you have said in this article and your response to the 12 years a slave film were very helpful to me.
