    Wow! Thanks a bunch for introducing this guy to me. It’s beyond tremendous when someone who is not of color talks about and acknowledges this subject. I think when people of color talk about racism, it has the potential to fall on deaf ears because it’s like “oh, the people of color are talking about racism….again.,” There is little understanding or compassion for that which one isn’t dealing with, but when someone outside the race talks about racism, it’s potency becomes magnified because it’s not a common occurrence. I commend Tim Wise for having the accountability, self awareness and strength of character to confront a subject -particularly in a public forum – that makes people so viciously uncomfortable. Grand kudos to him!
