Race in America. What a complicated issue. As a nation, we've wrestled with the complex legacy of our treatment of Native Americans, the painful history of slavery, and, more recently, what it means to be a person of color, an immigrant, a refugee. The public policy implications of our ruminations are so very challenging, ranging from issues of reparations to affirmative action to immigration. There seems to be no end to controversy, debate, and competing narratives.
