Racism: White and Black

Every day hundreds of millions of Americans get up, go to work and interact with other people all day long. Some of these Americans are black and some are white. There is work to be done, parties to go to, friends to talk to, neighbors to check with, salespeople and store clerks to buy from, and family to keep close to. In most of these cases, it makes no difference whether the other people are black, white, Asian, or Hispanic.
