Radio 4 Interview - Trevor Phillips former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

Do you think we've become over sensitive with regards to talking about race?.
Do we need to become accustomed to giving and taking offence.. in order to reach a better level of understanding?
I think we skirt around the issue of what racism really is

I know that black people tend to be more prone to experiencing oppression, exploitation, disadvantage and suffering than any other group of people - across the world
But yes, It has evolved somewhat.
We should try not to confuse xenophobia with racism though
It was mentioned in a discussion this morning that 'the future lies in falling in love with each other and making babies'...
Good luck with that.. it hasn't worked so far..
..or has it?
