Hey, folks: Maybe audiences, black and white, have just gotten tired of these conversations.
Maybe they’re done with national dialogue on race. Bill Clinton’s “One America Initiative,” all of the analysis of Barack Obama’s life, all of the panels, the cable talk shows, the harangues by Al Sharpton, the psychoanalysis of Donald Sterling — what if America has no appetite for this anymore?
A recent MTV survey found that 73 percent of millennials “believe never considering race would improve society” and “68 percent believe focusing on race prevents society from becoming colorblind.”
And the vast majority (84 percent) of these young people say their families taught them that people should be treated the same regardless of race. Yet only 37 percent say they were brought up in families that talked about race.
