The comments about Song of Solomon towards the end of the discussion tonight struck me by surprise (in a good way). I hadn't really thought of what I had pictured the characters appearance as, but the comments of pictures of whites instead of blacks made me think. The video we saw also made me think similar thoughts or the origin of race separation. If racisim is something we're taught and not born with, as we seemed to agree upon tonight, then how important is it for government to intervene the "wrongs" that are being taught to children of the 1960's all the way to the present? Just a thought that we sort of began to touch on tonight.
