"During Dr. King's day, people either loved you or hated you.  It was basically one or the other, and you knew where people stood. There was some salvation in that, given that love and hate requires you to care.  They were either with you, or against you.  Today, the issue is not so much love or hate, but what I call 'radical indifference.' Some people don't actually care enough about you to hate you. And this is why we organized Operation HOPE Bankers Bus Tours following the Rodney King Riots of 1992 in Los Angeles. It was our attempt to re-weave together a fabric of a caring and interconnected community. Every CEO and banker that participated, left the experience different."
