We’re Being Driven Towards A New Kind of Racism - Coleman Hughes

Walk-Ins Welcome Episode #278
3

Coleman Hughes sits down with Bridget to discuss his latest book, The End of Race Politics: Arguments for a Colorblind America. They talk about why people don't want to hear that the world isn’t as racist as they think it is, how racism sells very well as a news item, the realities behind disparities between races, what Coleman terms "neo racism," and the radical belief that black people are neither better nor worse than any other race. They cover why we should not racialize basic human concepts, the most surprising thing he learned while writing the book, instances of actual racism that he's seeing in society, why incremental progress should not be discounted, comforting falsehoods which help no one that come out of neo racism, the human phenomenon of slavery, why America is not unique, the debate about Civil War statues, the 1619 project, and transcending racial identity for a common passion.
