Great post on race in America.
“Why is the very mention of our country’s racist past and its lingering prejudices anathema to some? Why does discussing racism so often result in defensive bravado? It’s as if pointing out racial challenges negates the progress the country has made and condemns every member of the mainstream as an irredeemable racist. That is not the case.”
Considering the previous post, I’m lucky this came up when it did. It’s a fresh look at an old problem, and if you take the time to read it, I’m sure you’ll find it illuminating too.
