Some of My Favorite Presidential Candidates are Black

Soon I will be returning to America, where I can't talk about race without becoming very uncomfortable. We were looking at a Yahoo group for homeschoolers in Philadelphia. Yes, we are planning to homeschool Artemis, and that is an issue for another day. One woman had posted a message, asking for suggestions about Philadelphia neighborhoods. She wanted someplace good for families and safe. I replied with a few of my favorite neighborhoods: Queen Village, the Italian Market area, Society Hill, Rittenhouse Square. I immediately felt poster's regret. All of those quarters are lily white, I thought. Does that make me a racist?
