IN THE NEWS A SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE

A peaceful solution for racial injustice and unrest

Racism Is One of the most divisive issues in the United States and in other countries, too. It may involve more than just race per se—such as the physical differences between the Hutus and the Tutsis in Rwanda, or cultural differences between Muslim immigrants and people who were born in France. There always seems to be something about human characteristics that can separate us.

In my work with youth in the Detroit area, I've had opportunities to think long and hard about these situations. And I think that despite the veneer of peace and understanding on the surface, one reason racism continues to bubble underneath is that in many places there's still a need to address core issues, and to work together for healing.
