extract from baltimore-and virtually hosted discussion
I've been involved in dealing with racial matters for over 50 years. My 65 trips to South Africa were part of my search for the deep
divides..from a historical perspective. You can track that journey in my book The Crucible: Forging South Africa's future.
Just as the REAL issues in the Middle East are not about religion; the prime elements around "race" are NOT about race.
I have more than 35 books in my library about all of this. This will be a major issue in the 50th Super Bowl. I am very close to the NFL
and sports: was a team psychologist with the New Orleans Saints when Bum Phillips was head coach. Learned a lot from Bum.
Need to understand how the patterns of emergence shape the maturing levels in groups. Am looking at the 47th Annual NAACP Image
Awards announcement.. Nothing but Orange, 5th level materialism.
In short, our understanding of the key value systems is faulted to the core.

2 reasonings i wanted to share with you
1 Me: I am no saint. I expect racism lurks in me. I tell you what I mean. My first girl friend on my first trip to america was mugged. It was of course my fault. We had enjoyed a great time in various cities. The last one was Philadelphia city of brotherly love. There was so much to see in the 2 hour coach tour's dropoff- so i left my girl on one side of a square photographing something with the big clunky canon camera and lenses you used in those days while i wandered on an opposite side. Thats how she got mugged. So for about 30 years my kind of racism was simply not to go in into a harlem. I mean I could walk around a city like dhaka in bangladesh but i would never in a harlem. Oddly when in 2008 february yunus was telling 2000 people in new york of the coming sub-prime crisis the only places peter, spencer and i could find in new york ready to debate this were in harlem and the bronx https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=collaboration+cafe
2 But what i urgently want to ask you is how did the whole historically black university system -from Tuskegee to Baltimore - fail to control/mediate social business yunus enough to free 20000 black university students attending the greatest youth collaboration entrepreneur competition the states had seen atlanta nov 2015- chaired by nobel peace laureates, club of rome, ted turner, jimmy carter, the king family, rosa parks lawyer ... It seems to me to be the same question as to why hasnt the extremes of black youth loss of hope been improved under 8 years of obama's adminstration. But I am only left to make an old white european man's guess
Probably almost every sentence in this mail could be quoted out of context as politically incorrect -my freedom of speech error nobody else circulated - but when you have someone like Trump running for president what is PC anyhow? Why in 2016 do we passively listen to such politicians and their big-money-rotting mass media. Why not interactively ask every university to host an open space between democratic and republican youth all on the same hackathon weekend and just see if that changes something. And if such an annual open assembly -empowered by some youth-public-private partnership of khan academies and weekly tedx salons - became more popular than superbowl weekend (or soccer's world cup of frauds), then amen.

Naturally finding a gutsy young lady to mediate such an event might be a bit tricky too
