"Journalists have to learn to get outside of the comfort zone. You know, we live in such segregated communities that we don't bring a broad understanding of the complexities of our communities to the work place. So, we need to get out of the office and go into those very neighborhoods that we might otherwise avoid. We need to go to the churches, the barbershop, the schools and start to get to know people as people and not as stats."
