Whenever we reach for hate, we remember the Titans. The American racial divide from times on slavery and as recent as 1964 is unimaginable today.
Challenges remain, but in 1964 the civil rights act was adopted giving all Americans regardless of race equal rights.
The camp that unified the races. Coach Boon took the football team for a two-weeklong camp. The goal was true team building across the divide.
Coach Boon forced team to ride the bus together, forced teammates to room across the racial divide and he forced them to learn details about the athletes and their families who did not have the same skin colour as themselves.
These measures worked out well and some of the athletes changed their biases. Gerry for example thought less of coloured people, maybe due to the way he was raised.
