I asked my friend, Franklin Brooks to sit down and talk with me about race. Frank is black, I am white.

We've been friends for more than 15 years, but we've never just sat down like this and talked frankly about race.

It's obvious that Frank cares deeply about people, and I think you can hear the pain and the hope in his voice.

Frank is not a famous person, not a politician, just a "regular guy" who's been a great friend to many.
