Racism continues to bedevil our country.
Even people who have the best of intentions can be completely surprised when they are shown the effects of their words and deeds from the point of view of a person of color.
Racism won't vanish without further effort; the Racial Equity Coalition in the Rogue Valley encourages people to learn how to host frank discussions about race through its Race Tool Kit Project, and we explore its features in another edition of "The Keenest Observers." Robert Goodwin returns to host, with guests Alma Rosa Alvarez and Majorie Trueblood-Gamble.
Both are members of the Racial Equity Coalition and work at Southern Oregon University.
