The racial divide in the United States was drawn from the dramatic events in cities around the country. It was intended to open minds and hearts as we try to deal with such tragedies that include deaths of young men of color during confrontations with local white police officers or neighborhood watch persons; unprecedented unrest (including not only peaceful demonstrations, but also violence and senseless destruction of property); and published surveys/media commentaries suggesting the gulf exists between the way black people and white people view these events is wider than many people had thought. That gulf has been termed a racial divide.
