How about telling blacks to undo racism against whites. When I walk through a black neighborhood, I get stares and people call me names and shout at me. When a black person walks through my neighborhood, nothing happens at all. Some blacks have even moved in down the street and nobody has told them anything derogatory. Please teach New Orleans blacks that this is not the 1960's, that there is no need to see everything in color. No need to hate us and there is no need for us to hate you. We are all Americans and foremost, humans.
