John McWhorter and I are not on the same page in a number of areas but he clearly nails it here. The one-to-one relationship that this third wave antiracism has to religion is clearly shown and discussed as are the actual implications of encouraging people to be fragile. There is a related podcast which I have not yet listened to (I need to get isolating or noise cancelling headphones for the plane) but given the excellent discussions they have had previously I’m willing to recommend it.
This is a very kind, generous, and rigorous article.
