Last week, I was having a conversation with a woman who said that her father was distrustful of people of other races. When I asked her if she considered her father a racist, she balked at the premise of the question. When I think of a racist, I think of the worst kind of person, she said. And anyway, she said, her father didn't like anybody.

In Dallas on June 21 I had the privilege of speaking to our nation’s mayors at their annual national gathering. Mayors have an awesome responsibility. As a longtime resident of the Boston area, I remember the wise words of the late Tip O’Neill, our Congressman from Massachusetts and the longtime Speaker of the House, who used to say: “All politics is local.” Mayors deal with the daily problems facing people, balance competing interests, and make the difficult decisions that directly affect the lives of residents of our nation’s cities and towns, including working men and women.Add a comment
