There are certainly many more organizations that focus on the advancement of civil rights in America. The question I have to ask is, How many whites belong to any of these organizations?  If the goal is integration into society where all people are seen as equal, how well are these civil rights organizations doing within their organizations? If America’s strength is due to being a melting pot of immigrants from diverse backgrounds around the world, how do we continue to melt together when we pull apart to form race related exclusive organizations of any color, black or white? When a culture or group demands to be recognized for a distinction such as skin color, are they really trying to be part of the greater American society? Put another way, How do we blend together when we are pulling apart?
