Today's show titled;  "Do Whites In Interracial Relationships See Race Differently?"

While listening to the Michael Baisden show he and George commented on the number of whites that called in to support the family of Trayvon Martin.

They observed that most that supported the Martin family were white people that wer involved with Black people in an interracial relationship.  They asked the question why.
