    I am delighted you are doing this. As a nation we need to continue to address race and racism. In my own life I have worked on my own racism and will continue to. There are some strong efforts to address racism here in Minnesota, and boy are they needed. It is difficult as an older white guy to face how deeply racism is written into my psyche, but honestly addressing it is the only way to grow and change. I am a rather secular person, but excising racism seems like a task akin to exorcism.

    I will follow this series and try to contribute. I have been pondering recently why it is so important to me personally that I be accepted and seen as cool by young black colleagues at work. There is something to learn about myself in there somewhere.
