Racism in Grand Rapids

This week our local television station aired a self created documentary called "Race in Reality" hilighting the underlying racism that runs rampant in this city.

The susequent message boards that were created after the show also show the ignorance in this town.

I also learned from a Dateline program a few weeks ago that West Michigan also has the highest population of white supremesists and White Power groups in the nation.

There is a scary little-known documentary by Michael Moore called "Blood in the Face" which takes place mostly in W. Michigan and shows these groups and their hatred.

At one time I had hopes that within a generation or two this type of thinking would just die out.

I'm not so sure now.
