TK Coleman joins me for another excellent conversation about race. This week, we focus on the concept of “colorblindness.”
Is it possible to be colorblind, or is that naive? Can we recognize differences among groups, while still judging every individual according to their own character?
Is white supremacism a fundamental feature of white people’s minds – so much, that they cannot spot it within themselves? Is the reason that so many people deny being racist is because of a lack of self-awareness?
We cover these questions – and many more – in the next two episodes.

This is Part 2 of my conversation with Dr. Graham Priest. We talk about the history of logic and the great revisions that took place around the turn of the 20th century.
When logic met math, both disciplines changed, for better or worse.
