  1. White people, (unless they decide to listen/hear), will never step back and realize how often they're NEVER forced to be in a room of all blk/latino/asian ppl while at work, and think about how not being the random __ is a privilege.

  2. Hope for children is a gift of well being. Whether you are "sally the farmer's daughter, and/or the poor coal man's daughter;" being alone in unique circumstances… can make you the flower that grows the most fragrant & beautiful.

  3. Saying you feel "isolated and lonely", only because you're not around other black people… sounds pretty racist to me. Why does NBC do all these stories that attempt to divide Americans ? Can't we just get past race and start only looking at people's skills and abilities ?
