A Conversation about Raceâ€ is my answer to President Obamaâ€™s call for such a dialogue. As I state in the opening lines of the film, â€œI canâ€™t think of another issue that is more artificial, manufactured or manipulated, than this whole construct called, â€˜racism.â€™
In his groundbreaking new documentary; A Conversation About Race, filmmaker Craig Bodeker redefines the conventional wisdom on Race and Racism. A diverse group of Colorado residents are challenged for their thoughts on:
Why do white students score better than black students on standardized tests?
Why is the NBA nearly 90% black?
Have you ever been â€œracist?
Are whites better at anything than blacks?
Do blacks commit more crimes than whites?
Can you name a public figure who is â€œracistâ€?
Can you give an example of the racism you see in your daily life?
How do you feel about immigration from Mexico?
A Conversation About Race is just the starting point. Watch the film, and then have your own conversation about race. Youâ€™ll be surprised at what you discover!

Americans are being slandered as â€œRACISTSâ€more than ever before! Yet I donâ€™t know of ANY nation that has done more for itâ€™s â€œminoritiesâ€ than the USA has.
Thereâ€™s no other nation on Earth that has created so many â€œminorityâ€ millionaires, yet so many of these â€œminoritiesâ€ still hate America for her â€œracism?â€
We hear that â€œWhite European Cultureâ€ is overpowering and dominant. We hear that we need exclusively African American, Hispanic, and even Asian TV networks just to offset the â€œoppressive influencesâ€ of white culture! But have you turned on a TV lately?
Just how much â€œWhite Cultureâ€ is featured in American Broadcasting today? Thereâ€™s rarely any program or ad that doesnâ€™t feature at the least, an EVEN distribution of races or ethnic groups, even though two out of every three Americans are white! This is just one of the many â€œdisconnectsâ€ I see in my daily life on matters of race.
