Imagine it’s the late evening in Atlanta, and a small white woman is walking to her car in a parking lot. A black man she didn’t see before walks up behind her. She gets nervous and feels like she might be in danger. She holds onto her purse a little more tightly.
Is this a clear case of racism? Is it simply rational behavior? If it’s racism, is it a moral problem?
TK Coleman joins me to discuss these types of situations in Part Two of our conversation on race and colorblindness. Is it really possible to be colorblind, or is that naive to think? Are race relations improving or getting worse in America?
We cover these questions, and many more, in this episode.
