How we talk about race does matter: Leaders have a responsibility to avoid fanning the flames of racism for political advantage, such as what’s happening in Nashville, Tennessee, where a familiar national story is repeating itself. You know the storyline by now: A white police officer shoots and kills a black man who is running […]
