    I hope you both understand that some of “us”, white people, care about all people. I understand what Mr. Harris is saying but please know some of us are embarrassed by the behavior of others, mortified by what they say and speak out against racism every chance we get. I only pull out my Jewish laser for Trump Supporters!

    This kid is genuinely smart. and it kills me to know that many people will not stop and watch this interview because they don’t know him and because he is black. And for some odd reason they don’t think that black people have anything to say. Go compare interviews on whites and blacks on all shows and unless you’re Chad boswick, kevin hart, and the rock… ya get low ratings. . .

    Did you ask them to pay you to touch your hair? My son did! He came home with all this money in first grade. I asked where did he get it and he told me. Thanks Jeremy!

    At age 15 I was asked to go to prom by a beautiful woman. She is Black. I grew up in such a segregated town that her family was the sole Black family there; I didn’t go with her(I declined all invitations but one). Am I racist? Maybe. However, it didn’t even occur to me that she was Black until decades later.

    Is the mere fact that you acknowledge race–even decades after the fact–racist?

    Since that tender age I have cultivated many non-White friends. I acknowledge the fact that they cannot answer the Census the same way I can; does that make me racist? This is not a simple issue with a binary answer.

    I now must see _Slave Play_ . FWIW, I found _The Hate You Give_ to be one of the powerful and unsettling films of the past decade.
