It's long past time for the world (and the United States of America in particular) to admit the mistake of thinking the incredible spectrum of the human race can be divided into "black" or "white". I created "Some of My Best Friends Are Colored" to begin the process. I'm working on an exhibit, a coloring book and other materials that explain how and why we got into our current racial mess...and my ideas on how to get out.
Since I live in Chicago, the consequences of our historic failures are bloodily obvious. I just hope I'm not too late.
