I’ve never not thought that we needed to have a conversation about race. Of course we need to have a conversation and we have to have one now more so than in the recent past. It hasn’t been since Obama – McCain in 2008 that we’ve talked about race in a significant manner. And this moment in time seems more poignant.
So yeah, let’s have that conversation.
And that means putting on your big girl panties. A conversation means interaction; interaction in ways that might be difficult, emotional and divergent from your own views.
So here is Bill:
Controversial? Yup. Opinionated? Yup. A conversation starter? Yup.
So, Hayes has an opinion. I get that. And his opinion is that he doesn’t like O’Reilly’s opinion. Which, I guess, is fine. But what we’re trying to do here is have a conversation. Which, like I said, is about engaging with UNlike minded people.
Hayes isn’t doing that here. What he’s doing is anti-conversation having. What he’s doing is offering a soliloquy, a speech of one with no option of dissenting views.
Which, like I said, is fine. But it’s not a conversation. And we need to have that conversation.
