It's Complicated

The objective is easy and for the most part we all desire the same thing; a country unified, without discrimination or mistreatment by authorities based on skin color or how someone looks. And while we can get consensus on that, we are a long way from being unified on how we get there and the reason that is, is because quite frankly, "it's complicated." Of course it's not complicated for those who have learned to love all people without prejudice or fear, but the objective is not just for those isolated few, but instead to take millions upon millions of people who all have varied histories and traumas and get them all to see others in a way that contradicts everything that they have learned

The Carlin Charleston Connection

This blog is dedicated to simply and quickly explaining through a personal story, how we solve the "race" problem. Here goes: The Carlins met the Charlestons in 1995. The Charlestons and Carlins arrived as two distinctly different families on Okinawa as part of the United States Marine Corps.

The Final "Dear White People" Letter

OK I've had enough. I saw a post today that said that those who advocate for One Human Race are covertly "white supremacist." I also saw two different articles today addressed as "Dear White People."
