Making them feel comfortable? That's absolutely ridiculous! It's one thing to say that seeing a group of teenagers talking loudly and wearing oversized clothing makes one uncomfortable--I don't like being near any race of teens, as a matter of fact (barely out of my teens years myself, funny enough). But then some people will persist in feeling threatened because you are Black, irregardless of how neatly dressed or well spoken you are. I've experienced situations like this, only with Asians...

No. (but it also depends on where you live whether you may want to take it into account) If I am by myself and not acting the fool then I expect that people around my are not going to feel uncomfortable. Quite frankly if a person is that stupid to show discomfort then rest assured I will use it to my advantage to embarrass them for their ignorance. In the a city where 99% of the crime is committed by whites I find it somewhat offensive to walk by a person who grabs their purse as I approach-...

NO! It is exactly that unbalance relationship that leads to a stalled, halted or forsaken "dialogue." Arguably, people could say Dr. King and Pres. Lydon Johnson started a "dialogue." For sure, a number of common folk or community leaders, mostly educators and religious leaders have had "dialogues." But hardly any thing that can be regarded as a serious "dialogue" where it counts, in the halls of power. As for Clinton's deal, you can research and look for opinions about that "conversation".
