Over the past few weeks I have found myself in situations or among conversations about race. Each left me very uncomfortable. In my heart, I don't feel that any of the parties involved are racist, but some questions were raised in my mind. Not only questions about them, but about myself and whether my feelings are valid.
I grew up in a predominantly black community and attended a historically black university. I was not raised to hate anyone because of their color, but it was embedded that generally blacks are disliked and treated unfairly. I have never experienced racism first-hand, but have heard accounts from family and friends.
