Racial Discrimination   
by Mellody Hobson
http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNzk4NDgyNDEy.html 
Color blind or color brave?
 
The subject of race can be very touchy. As she says, it's a "conversational third rail." But, that's exactly why we need to start talking about it. Hobson makes the case that speaking openly about race - and particularly about diversity in hiring - makes for better businesses and a better society.
 
What kind of information does she want to spread?
You see, I want them to look at a CEO on television and say, "I can be like her," or, "He looks like me." And I want them to know that anything is possible, that they can achieve the highest level that they ever imagined, that they will be welcomed in any corporate boardroom, or they can lead any company. 
•being the land of the free and the home of the brave
•woven into the fabric of America
•show courage
•to be bold 
•As business leaders, not to leave anything on the table. 
•As citizens, not to leave any child behind. 
 
Not to be color blind, but to be color brave .
Every child knows that their future matters and their dreams are possible.
