Updated: December 11, 2014 - 10:56 am

Do we really need more conversations about race in America? The progressive mainstream media, politicians, and activists have been fanning the flames of race since August when a police officer killed a man who had just strong-armed robbed a local store and who refused to get out of the middle of the street when confronted by the officer inside his patrol car.
