Certain people may be that way but not everyone. There truly are some people who which color is not a factor when it comes to business. This is one of those cases where greed and the desire to hire the best person for the best job actually works in favor of a better society.

I also don’t believe that its necessary for anyone to apologise for something that their ancestors did. If you did something horrible then you need to apologise and make amends in any way possible but if need to apologise for the sins of our forefathers no one will ever be able to stop. We all have something ugly in our past.

One thing that I do want to see raised and may be in part 2 is the idea that yes we want people to not react differently to anyone based on race of culture but that tends to lead us to a course where everyone acts the same. Where is the room to embrace ones roots and be proud of ones’ heritage in a nation where its all different? The kicker comes in when some of the things that are part of that cultural heritage may turn someone off for various reasons. Does that make them rascist? I think that’s where the issue becomes far more complex.

As always Jeff is totally awesome and I’m surprised by how much he and I agree despite a generational age gap. Keep up the podcasts and include Jeff as much as possible.
