The way issues of race are being polarized at the moment, particularly in the US, seems very manipulative to me. There are issues that need to be dealt with, but there are also people seeking to gain from stoking conflict. It's my view everyone should be thinking about facts, evidence and having an objective and open mind, not just chiming on divisive naratives.

He changed peoples lives in Little Rock Arkansas for the better. For example, African Americans lives like Liz were improved because earlier in time it was difficult for her and her family members to deal with society but now African Americans are treated more equally.
