The Race Issue:The Elephant in the Living Room

My whole life has been colored by the race issue. Is there some way we can all get on the same wavelength an d begin to not be divided over this issue. I remember after the huge riots after the Rodney King incident that people in general sobered on this issue and began to realize that rascism is a potentially explosive issue that could destroy this country. We can no longer afford to let ourselves indulge in this thing.
The first issue that I want to discuss in this vein is the issue of reparations. In a moral sense I can see that keeping people down for hundreds of years and then refusing to repair the damage by offering reparations is wrong, but as a country , how are we to pay for this and in what form?
