Can Americans Speak Frankly about Race?
What do you think?
In America, can people of different ethnic and racial backgrounds speak their minds about race with equal frankness? Why or why not?
Do members of some racial groups have more insight into racial matters than members of other groups, as McWhorter interprets Holder to mean? Explain.
What do you think can be done to help improve racial relations and discourse in America?
I answered the last question. As of this posting, they haven't yet approved my answer (I posted it at about noon today). In any event, it's below.
One thing that can be done to help improve racial relations in the United States is to stop exterminating racial minorities through womb-lynching by organizations like Planned Parenthood.
If America realizes that the lynching of African Americans never stopped but actually skyrocketed in number, we can come even closer to racial reconciliation (the percentage of blacks aborted is substantially higher than the percentage in the population of America at large).
We must confront the beliefs of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. In 1929, she wrote the following.
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." (emphasis added)
There is already radically real racial reconciliation happening in the pro-life movement. Black, Whites, Asians, and all races have come together, like the original abolitionists, to proclaim that like African Americans, preborn humans are also persons made in the image and likeness of God that have a right to life from conception.
