"Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) told a crowd in Iowa this weekend that the country needs “a better conversation” on racism, sexism and other prejudice ― and that it starts with “truth-telling,” even if the instinct is to become defensive in the face of questions about bigotry.

Booker, one of many people vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, spoke Saturday at a campaign event in Marshalltown. In response to a question from the audience about how the country can make progress on racial issues, he said people often fear “talking to people about what they don’t understand.”
