Don't let it provoke any thoughts. If you stop thinking about it, the problem ceases to exist.

Never heard of it. I like some reality shows, but I'm more into game show these days. I like "deal or no deal".

if you don't speak of something, it doesn't necessarily go away. there's always someone who uses silence and ignorance for evil.

silence can be deafening.

People who are able to isolate themselves from problems find it much easier to distance themselves from the issues and imagine that they're all in the past. Undeniable advances in race relations over the past 50 years have not come from people "not talking about it" and not stirring things up.

Even with the advances that have been made, significant and complex issues remain. Morgan Freeman's wealth and success make it far easier for him to take the stance that he has.

Racial issues are always going to be prevelant, and we could discuss it, but I was trying to keep things to cooking. PM's otherwise. This is a cooking forum so...and I could go on about many issues, but this is neither the place or time to do so.

i understand his point, but as a society, as a nation, and certainly as a planet, we're not there yet.
it's a nice sentiment, but premature imo.

only education and communication will get us there.

the internet, with all of it's foibles and pitfalls, will go great lengths to helping the latter.

I thought this was the "Off Topic" area... and... the banner at the top of the page DOES say "Discuss Life".

I see many non-food-related topics here so I don't see that this is "neither the place or time to do so."

I apologize if any have seen my comments as inappropriate.

Agree on all points.

So many topics are discussed here... I don't see why this topic is misplaced. As I scan the topics discussed on pages in this section, I see topics about many issues. My intent was not to discuss racism itself, but only to get peoples' views of this 'reality show'... and this is a topic that has been discussed MANY times here.
