Forum takes up racism in Siouxland

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- Siouxland attracts people of all cultures and backgrounds, and has become an increasingly diverse place to live.

Thursday night, a panel of six Siouxlanders of all different races talked about the climate of racism and discrimination in Sioux City.

The organizer of the forum says area schools are doing a good job of integrating diversity into the classroom. She says we're in an age when many different colors in the classroom is more of a commonplace.

Renae Hohensee of Sioux City Human Rights Commission says, "Everybody offers something that is so rich. As we take the best from each culture in the Siouxland area, it enriches our life as a whole."

The forum was sponsored by the Sioux City Human Rights Commission and wraps up its series of Black History Month events.
