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.
The Virtue Signalers Won’t Change the World:Why Third wave anti-racism is a dead end
What is Third-Wave Antiracism? (Glenn Loury & John McWhorter)
This episode will not be likely to interest you if you are not a Christian, or at least participate in a religion.
This is where the discussion needs to start.
This is a highly recommended episode.
I’ve listened to this podcast more than once and will be listening to it again. The participants are wicked smart and articulate. They all hold heterodoxical views from the intersectional/grievance study norms on race, yet hold perspectives that diverge from each other as well. This is what happens when people do their own thinking.
Again, this episode is highly recommended.
