That's one solution. Or everyone can just be aware that a ivy university
president gave a speech on race to a new Studies Program which arguably will
be promoting "race in your face" curricular content and programs on campus;
this will save you the disappointment of reading a dud of a speech. I was
left with this message from her: if you are good and have good goals use
race to promote your ends; otherwise leave it alone because it is a powerkeg
best left to "us" enlightened ones who are above and unlike our racist
predecessors.
