Probably, because anytime anyone speaks of anything regarding race, people have been indoctrinated into making snap judgments about the speaker's attitudes toward those of a different color. No one, regardless of color, is given credit for being able to speak objectively about race. I think we all need to aspire to assess individuals, not groups, regarding actions. I hope this doesn't sound like a sociology class, but, to me, the topic that started this thread is really about a culture and not a color. There are really a lot of intelligent, pleasant, and socially-adept folks out there, who happen to be a different color than most. We will only continue to advance as a country when we are able to judge the heart and soul, and not the pigmentation of the skin.
