This page was created simply for the purpose of adding “stuff” like links to stories that caught my eye during the week regarding race. Or maybe for pasting in inspirational quotes and a quick blurb on what it might inspire each of us to do in the interest of trying to improve race relations in America. Those items will be added weekly (or however often possible) – below this message on a rolling basis.
So if you should happen to become a regular visitor and maybe feel like double stuffing your oreo after reading my weekly post – stop in here to see what I may have found. Also if you find something that you believe might be of interest to others – send it to me via the “Got Milk?” link in the Main Menu. I will be sure to give you the credit if you decide you’d like to provide your particulars (ie Name, city, occupation or anything else you might like to have shouted out).
