Antiracism: A thoughtful take on contemporary attitudes toward “structural racism” and ‘colorblind” personal relations


Tyler Austin Harper, “The Problem With ‘Centering Blackness’ in Everyday Conversations; On good and bad color-blindness,” The Atlantic, August 14, 2023 (7:00 am).

Harper, a black academic, offers his reflections on “race-centering” in contemporary personal interactions between blacks and whites in America, and argues in favor of continuing an earlier “colorblind” approach in interpersonal relations.

The article is thoughtful, and thought-provoking. It is worth reading in its entirety.
