Race is never an easy topic to discuss.
But given the events of the last ten days, an honest discussion is more important than ever.
Police killed Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge. He was selling CD's outside a market.
The next day Philando Castile was shot outside Minneapolis. His girlfriend, in the car with her four year old daughter, says he was reaching for his wallet to show officers his gun permit when he was shot.
The very next day, Micah Johnson opened fire on Dallas police officers at a Black Lives Matter protest against police shootings. Johnson shot and killed five officers and wounded seven more.
