Senator Barack Obama threw down the gauntlet on Tuesday in a speech on race in America. Blacks are angry, whites are resentful, and it's time to end the racial stalemate. Faced with criticism of his pastor's remarks, Obama pointed out the giant elephant in America’s living room. What are the issues of race in this country? How do we get past the anger and heal the great divide? A conversation on race ...Friday morning at 9, on The Sound of Ideas.
