Avoiding the subject of race

There is debate whether Philadelphians are too afraid of the police to protest about Mumia, like in NY or whether we are rednecks who want to see someone punished who wouldn't even face life imprisonment much less death in punishment hungry Saudi Arabia.
But as usual we Americans tend to mess things up by avoiding the subject of race. Strike up a casual conversation then mention Mumia. Avoidance rather than anger or fear will be the most likely response.

Neither fear of the police or anger
