Perhaps we should all listen.

I am constantly amazed when people say things like this: "racism is not the real problem in America, the real problem is that certain races just do not make the effort to work, learn English, etc."

The best man at my wedding was African American. He has a masters in engineering and an MBA. He has worked in upper management for five Fortune Five-hundred companies in his wonderful career, so far. He is among the nicest, most talented, and wonderful human beings I know. I am honored to be his friend. He could not get a cab in New York when he lived there four years ago. Even though he dresses in suits from Brooks Brothers, he still can't.

Here is an interesting video. Perhaps we should take racism more seriously every day.
