I agree with Mellody when she begins explaining about colorblindness not meaning there is no racial discrimination or fairness. It is important to not avoid race and to deal with it head on. Recognizing and embracing all races is important. I feel that it is important to express your opinion and share your personal experiences and "to get comfortable with the uncomfortable", like Hobson states in her talk.
As an environment like Youth and Action, the youth are encouraged to share their person life experiences and creating change in their environments. They also have the opportunity to interact with people of different diversity backgrounds and being able to express their opinions about issues of race without having fear of being judged about it. It is important for youth to understand this as well.
