July 29, 2010, Kansas City, MO – From the heart of America – and getting directly to the heart of race and ethnicity issues in the country – USARiseUp.com provides an opportunity to have a sustained conversation about race and ethnicity issues and their effect on our American communities.
USARiseUp.com aims to spark an ongoing conversation for all races and ethnicities about the things that make us different, as well as those things that unite us. “By celebrating our commonalities, getting a better understanding of our differences, and working on those things that divide us, only then can we build stronger communities, cities, nations and a stronger world,” said founder and publisher, Janice S. Ellis.
To help start that conversation, USARiseUp.com offers both in-depth news stories on current racial and ethnic subjects, as well as lighter fare, such as recipes, family puzzles and a comic strip. Cover and feature stories address issues around race, culture and ethnicity in depth. USARiseUp.com writers and contributors come from all across the country, representing the race and ethnic mix that is America.
To engage and foster an ongoing dialogue, readers can share their thoughts by posting comments on all the articles in all the departments, special features, and the articles posted in the Blog Zone.
USARiseUp.com addresses difficult issues in a way that encourages people to keep the conversation going – across generations and racial divides. As both an educational resource and source of entertainment , USARiseUp.com will allow readers to celebrate both the things that make them different and the things that unite us all.
“We can hardly tune in to any media source and not witness an incident that shows we need to address race relations in this country.” said Ellis. “Talking about race and ethnicity in a positive, constructive manner is so important to us all understanding each other better. And we must if we are to create a better society for future generations,” said Ellis.
