Why is this beach still alive?

Soledad O'Brien addressed criticism from "white people" about her documentaries about race in America in a new video.

"First of all, it's only white people who ever said that --'if we could just see beyond race. If only people didn't see race, it would be such a better place, and you are responsible for bringing up these icky race issues, Soledad, you should just let sleeping dogs lie,'" O'Brien said.

She continued, "I was like, again,'OK, white person, this is a conversation you clearly are uncomfortable with, and I have no problem seeing race, and I think we should talk about race."
