I Want to Understand

Last night, I saw a play called "Permanent Collection". The play explored the powerful impact of a particular virulent form of racism -- the extremely subtle form.

A key phrase from the play sticks in my mind:

    We [the minority] spend our whole life trying to understand you [the majority], while you [the majority] do not even care enough to try to understand us [the minority].
