The documentary was absolutely amazing. As a black man who has lived in Mississippi all my life, I have found that most White people here have an apathetic tone towards the racial divide that exists. It's kind of a "If we don't talk about it, we don't have to deal with it" attitude.
Your documentary is doing just what needs to be done to help calm the storms of racism; create open and honest conversation about the issue. I speak very frankly about racism and other social injustices. Because of this, a lot of people say that I perpetuate the problem. I am a firm believer that if I don't take a stand, it is like acknowedging that everything is fine in regards to race relations. No one can claim ignorance to these issues. So to turn a blind eye, or a deaf ear is nothing short of the kind of indifference that has this country so segregated now.
I wish the people here in Greenville were ready for a community forum on race. We discuss everything from religion, politics and the economy, to healthcare, and housing. Why is the race issue so taboo?!
I appreciate you stepping up and taking your place in this fight. May God continue to bless you and your efforts.
