    HOUSTONPBS PROGRAM TAKES A CLOSER LOOK AT RACE RELATIONS

    “A Conversation on RACE” marks the 10th anniversary of Jasper murder
    Airs Friday, June 20th at 8pm on HoustonPBS/Channel 8
    (Encore performance Sunday, June 22nd at 5pm)

    Ten years ago, James Byrd, Jr. was murdered in our own community, simply because of the color of his skin, yet 10 years later, an African American man is the democratic candidate for U.S. President. Have we really come this far or can the same things that happened to Mr. Byrd just a few years ago, happen again today?

    On June 20th at 8pm, HoustonPBS presents "A Conversation on RACE," hosted by Ernie Manouse. Through conversation and hypothetical situations, the program will discuss how far we have come, and how far we still have to go. Involving great thinkers, political officials and community leaders, the show will explore this issue in a 60 minute television event. Through this dialogue, HoustonPBS hopes to address the topic of race in our own community, as well as in our country.

    Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt, Reverend William A. Lawson, Houston NAACP President Carol Mims Galloway, Journalist & Pulitzer Prize Finalist Tony Freemantle, Rice University Sociologist Stephen Klineberg and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee are scheduled to participate.

    We have come a long way toward making this a nation not so obsessed by race, and we've got a mighty long way to go.

    Until a person can walk into a room and nobody even notices that they are of one race or the other, race will continue to be an issue.

    That will never happen.

    I also find it disturbing that the article starts off with the poor blacks getting picked on by evil whites.

    a.) This is not a one way street.
    b.) There are more than two racial populations in America.

    Talk to the people of the WWII generation about what it was like for them when they lived in their own ethnic ghettos during the depression.

    No daughter of theirs was ever going to marry a insert the White ethnic of your own choice here, either.

    Now such marriages interethnic/religious aren't really much of an issue (for sane people...which does not include my ex-father-in-law, of course)

    are you hoping that everyone loses their powers of observation.....all humans are blind or that all humans look visually the same.......

    but i imagine you simply chose your words poorly and you menat that it will not matter how others look.....

    Well, Ernie, we should all be flattered that you signed up for the message board for the apparently sole purpose of promoting your show. And since you stopped by, let me share into the cyberspace what I typically just grumble to Mrs. Joyce when watching anti-white bullshit funded by taxpayers on PBS: Your stupid show isn't a "conservation," it's a lecture. A lecture by black militants made to guilty white liberals who will lap it up like a kitten's milk. You'd never have the guts or the creativity to do an anniversary story on the Wichita Massacre or the Knoxville Horror or any of the other horrific crimes by blacks against whites. Wouldn't fit your kill whitey agenda.
