Racism can feel like the problem that won’t go away. We spend a lot of time talking about it but are we really getting better at answering the really important questions? If, as the song says, that “you've got to be taught to hate” then what are we doing as parents, friends and citizens to ensure that the lessons of hatred are not spread? How do we educate ourselves – ask questions that make us feel uncomfortable – on such an explosive issue? When being uncomfortable makes us want to turn away, how do we keep ourselves focused and engaged?
