    The news on race this year has been sobering.  It feels to me like there has been a worsening of racial inequality, racism, and trivialization of racial topics. 

    Urban League President Marc Morial  "Black America is in Crisis" CBS News.  However, in the article, it sounds like there is incremental progress.

    Im curious about the red equal sign Morial is wearing.  I know there is a gay red equal sign, but this looks different.  It leads me to wonder  - with all of the ribbons, and the red equal signs, is there a logo that promotes racial equality?  Would it matter if people wore such a logo?  

    My car has a Human Rights Campaign FUnd equal sign.  I would love if there was such a symbol that promoted racial equality.

    Indian-American fraternity party boy couldn't get into medicalschool, so he shaved his head and pretended to be black.  Then he WAS accepted into medical school, quit after two years.  Now he wants to cash in on the experience.  He wasted a place in medical school where someone else might have made a difference.
