I survived the race conversation panel last night. It wasn’t too bad. There were two controversial moments. One was when a black man stood up to inform us that all white people everywhere were trained to be racist from the crib. I was a bit surprised when a number of people clapped.
The other moment was when a white guy stood up and demanded to know how the black panelists confronted their own racism. But then he wouldn’t shut up and descended into Mexicans taking over the country.
The moderator did not moderate. People took forever to ask their questions and half of them did not actually ask questions. But, it was a good night and a good discussion. There were, however, a few occasions where I politely kept quiet.
