White People relationships with black people

Tom I really enjoy the show I do have a question though

13 days ago on Aug, 27, you said that 75 % of white people have no relationship with any black people. I think this is complete inaccuarte. Can you clarify?

Also, if a white person is born in area where there are very few or no black people, does this make them at fault for not knowing any black people?

I think these comments tend to push people apart. We need to have people come together and not focus so on differences.

Tell Senate Democrats that SJR 19 is NOT Good Enough!!

To the Co-Sponsors of Senate Joint Resolution 19:

Thank you for standing up against big money and special interests in co-sponsoring SJR 19, but it doesn't go far enough.

For the past four years the Movement to Amend the Constitution has been clear: We must both abolish corporate constitutional rights AND get big money out of politics.

Don't advocate for an amendment that only goes part way!

Used Tool for $1.8 million at auction
