We are part of the dialogue on race, whether or not we open our mouths to speak, it affects us on the road, meets us as we check out items in a food store. Race affects us at a table in an eatery with that exotic girl or boy and confronts us in a bar. Race impedes our efficiency as teachers, doctors or priests; it confronts us right inside our church, synagogue or mosque—all in very subtle ways. Don’t be a Victim or Agent of Race Rage. Join efforts toward putting off this simmering fire. We all need to clothe ourselves with the spirit of love. It has to start in an individual’s heart before it becomes a community fashion, onward to being a national style.
