Morning Edition: 'WHITE FLOUR' BY DAVID LAMOTTE
Hate crimes, bullying, racism, and hate-based organizations still routinely make the headlines. But, what if we could find a real way to "all just get along?" David LaMotte, lyricist, award-winning musician, and recipient of the Rotary World Peace Fellowship, offers a different approach to violence and hate by infusing humor into situations to make hatred seem, quite literally, foolish. Pam Bunch talked to LaMotte recently about his new book called "White Flour", a children's book - which most adults should read as well - based on a real incident that took place in Knoxville, TN in 2007.
