Primary obstacles to progress in race relations are the phrases “race card” and "race baiting," which are guileful tactics to stymie meaningful discussions about race.  It is acceptable to converse about gender equality, gay issues, and even religious beliefs, but when people raise race concerns, they are accused of playing the race card or race baiting.  The phrases are being employed as psychological barriers that discourage dialogue about race.    

In order to fix race issues within law enforcement, first race issues within our society have to be addressed.  And in order to accomplish this, the terms race card and race baiting must be eradicated as their use reduces race struggles to trivial discourse.
