I’ve been watching “Meeting David Wilson,” a documentary about race, which I recommend. It points out to me again what Beverly Morgan Welch said, that “Slavery is an X-rated conversation.”
We are still an incredibly racist nation, and you don’t see it in this documentary as much as you see it in the commercials supporting it. They are all geared toward African Americans. I think it’s fabulous to have commercials featuring faces that are not lily white. Please, lets have more of them. But, what I find troubling about this is that the commercial selection is indicating that corporate America thinks no white people will be interested enough in race to watch this documentary. Sad.
