How far have we come on race?

You don't have to go to Charlottesville to realize this country still faces serious problems when it comes to race.

All you have to do is visit

I explain it today in my weekly Letter From the Editor print column.

I also detail one of the best experiences of my life, one that taught me lessons I have tried to live up the past five decades.

It has to do with how you treat people and how you would like to be treated.

And I learned them on the campus of Lincoln University.

Why was that experience so important? I explain it here, and I wish that every person could have just a small sliver of this type of minority experience.

I think we'd be light years ahead of where we are today, instead of still confronting this same old demons.
