Kevin Costner Slams Race Baiters; Says Shutdown Conversation Invoking Race

Hollywood Mega Star Kevin Costner is the star of a new movie with some very serious thematic material. “Black or White” is a movie about family but it is also a movie that deals with race and racism. In this latest film, Costner plays a grandfather raising his biracial granddaughter and fighting for custody over her with the other side of her family. While many see race as it’s central theme Costner says that’s a small part of it… it’s really more about love and family.

What is most interesting to me is Costner’s willingness to stand up to the race-baiters who try and shut down conversations on race that involve white people. White’s must have a place in the dialogue if our nation (and the world) are to move forward and away from our old racist ideas.
