One final thought for the evening morning....

The rather painful discussions concerning race in America that have been going on for the last week or so lead me to this conclusion: We would be better off NOT talking openly and honestly about race. I'm sensing no kind of resolution to anything, just increased tension and resentment on all sides. Sometimes the best course of action is for everyone to maintain a tight-lipped silence, and hope that time itself will provide relief. (You know, like when obnoxious relatives come to visit for the holidays. Just wait a few days, and they'll be gone....)

The topic of race in this country is so incendiary that I believe we may need to keep it safely locked away, lest that heat burn us and set our house on fire.
