    That's painting with an overly broad brush.  Nobody in the US can "talk sense about race"?  Literally???

    Hell, you could find many US citizens right here on this site who are very rational and sensible about race.

      race is undefinable, for starters. Why is Obama 'black' rather than 'white'? There's no place in the world where people can agree upon basic "facts" about race, so how can you have a sensible discussion of a topic about which even the starting points are fuzzy?

      As for Americans, with our history of slavery and oppression of several "races", any discussion is fraught with hidden meanings.

      It would be far healthier for our country if we all admitted that none of us can talk sensibly about race.

        But what is your idea of "sensible" and what makes you think YOU have any ability to discern as such?

        Just sayin' is all, if youre going run your conclusions up the flagpole. Be prepared to to defend them.
