    I'm a twenty four year old from the south. I'm here to talk about issues of race and politics. I'm going through an understanding racism conference and it really highlighted the systemic issues that effects our community. So I am here to kind of work through these things in my head through dialogue.

    Understand young Brother, that the perspectives and realities concerning racism differ from group to group, from educational level to educational level and from house ninjas to field ninjas. So don't fall victim to any "ONE" reality as if that is the epitome and answer to what's going on. You can get an "IDEALISTIC" perspective or a REALIST perspective. You can get an "I HAVE A DREAM" perspective or a BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY perspective. you can get a religious grounded perspective or a nationalistic perspective. There are many and you must explore them all in order to arrive at YOUR OWN ANSWER.

    Peace!!

    Greetings and Welcome! You stated that you are attending a racism conference and that you live in the south. What is it about racism that you would like to discuss?

    My second question is, who is conducting the conference?
