Hi Tim,

I would concur, most Americans do not understand race and white supremacy. The comments section is never the place to engage in truly constructive dialog, but I saw a piece that was well written and supported, it begged a response. Unfortunately, the assault on black intellectuals is alive and well and so I have few opportunities to engage.

That said, I ask, do you believe in race?

I for one do not. Ethnicities, yes, but race? There is no such thing as separate races. Our differences do not add up to anything remotely approaching separate species.

Conceding the theory of race is to give into the lie of race.

Thank you for your response and preceding article. Clear discourse is the bane of ignorance.

Like what you read? Give Tim Garrity a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
