How Does Your Country Talk About Race?

Talk of the Nation, February 26, 2009

The election of President Barack Obama has prompted new discussions about race in the U.S. And now that the first African-American first family has moved into the White House, that conversation is bound to continue, and evolve.

Today, we ask our U.S. audience to put down the phone, as we continue a series where we invite listeners from around the world to talk about issues that affect us all.

How do you talk about race in your country? When's the last time you had a conversation about race, at work or at home? Who did you speak with, and what did you take away from the conversation?
