Here we go again!!!! The elephant in the room is RACE and it showed up in a courtroom with Paula Deen and in a Swiss boutique with Oprah.  Two different reasons. In two separate countries thousands of miles away. Paula Deen admitted to frequent use of the “N” word with staff, friends, family and colleagues.  Oprah strolled into a fashionable Swiss boutique and was refused service when the clerk thought the purse she wanted to see was too expensive for her tastebuds.  

Let’s clear the record, Electing a popular and prolific Black President does NOT make this country post racial!  And now it doesn’t make the world post racial!  Race is embedded in the DNA of our society, even though it is merely a social construct crafted by the slave owners of the 1600s.  

We’ll explore the reasons why race still matters with Mary-Frances Winters, a veteran diversity professional who has personally felt the sting of racial injustice and understands why it persists to this day.
