We can't blame or define every problem in America on race.  Or can we?  With the modern framework and social dialogue of our society inflamed by two party bickering, there seems to be only two strong minded camps to choose from in defining our participation in social solutions based on our racial/ethnic lineage, our duration and cultural/religious establishment in this country and how we perceive others different than us as either a betterment or worsening in society.  A purely ethical person would not catergorize people by race nor blame certain aspects like crime, poverty, lack of success of people per race.  Defining conditions that lead to crime or poverty or lack of success occurs a lot on our show based on certain perspectives.  If I choose my own self, Lutheran Scandinavian who grew up in a homogenous white suburb but sought out other races out of curiosity and as a form of social bartering to learn and help those less fortunate, is that me acting out of kindness and generosity or white privilege?  We have others on the show who are Black and one cohost looks at their own race as a way to strengthen their race and look for new mechanisms to disable white power while the other cohost looks at his own race as a failure for not succeeding in the system academically, financially or other ways.  Our cohost who is 1/2 white, 1/2 Latino takes a traditional value approach, that by honoring/serving God and respecting institutions, one cannot fail.   Plus we will discuss, racial mixing, genology and racial hybrid and blended identity.
