Mississippi Healing

Link - William Winter at a seminar for southern state legislators in Chapel Hill, N.C.: "I must tell you that the problem of race, despite all the progress that we have made, remains the thorniest, trickiest and most difficult barrier that we confront to achieve a truly successful and united region. One of the reasons that it is so hard," he continued, "is that most white folks and most black folks do not share the same perspective. Most white folks think that we have come a lot further in race relations than most black people do. There is still too much misunderstanding between the races, too much white flight, too little trust, too many subtle nuances that signal the continuing gap."
