When League City resident Stanley Chiu saw protests break out across the county in recent weeks against racial injustice, he pulled out his computer and recorded a series of videos detailing his own experiences with racism.

I totally agree that being able to talk about race relations in all its dimensions begins to break the silence and discomfort that can be felt when the topic is brought up in an interracial group setting. This process can help to bring the vast majority of all races who are in the center to a better understanding of "the other" and perspectives that they can share.

This is going to have to be a mature, two-way conversation to be productive. The extremists at both ends will need to be marginalized so that the work can be done without other agendas introduced. The angriest voices have dominated over the past few months; it's time for voices such as those presented here have a chance to speak out, speak up and help build a better America.

I enjoyed the conversations about racism that people has while standing in line at Bronco Burrito ( hope they rebuild soon). Oh, wait! THERE WEREN'T ANY! How about if I just want to go quietly about my business and let you go quietly about yours?

The last line should read "search for "Stanley Chiu." " Really, for a story on inherent racism, you should try to get the man's name spelled correctly.
