Newspaper says ‘Black youths’ not ‘kids.’

A white female with all minority students and friends, I am saddened and disgusted that race bias permeates every facet of our culture. What we think of as American culture is actually white culture, and others who challenge it are seen as complainers. Why is BET the only place on TV where you see people of color? Wouldn’t you challenge our ‘color blind’ culture if your family was once property and people were scared to walk on the same sidewalk as you?
