Advice On Racism: Get Smart

Con-struct, CC BY-SA 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=18807661

Maybe history doesn't exactly repeat itself, but the racial tensions of recent years certainly give some people déjà vu.  Incidents of people being disparaged for race or nationality have gotten more common, as have incidents of people being called racist. 

Margaret Andersen, a sociologist, offers a way ahead in her book Getting Smart about Race: An American Conversation.  And the title is literal; Andersen is convinced we need to talk about race and racial healing.  She offers history, context, and more in a conversation on The Exchange.
