Post-Racialist Society Postponed

Fifty to seventy-five years from now, I think our present "corrective" obsession with race will be seen for what it is -- as a pernicious flip side of overt racism, an entrenchment of attitudes not made much less evil or silly merely because it's a bit more subtle than what it replaced. Our great-grandchildren will consider racial special pleading every bit as ugly as racial prejudice, and wonder why we didn't. Their historians will tell them we were traumatized for generations by the Holocaust and be right, but that fact will have lost much of its emotional impact through the passage of time. This wound, too, will heal. -- Armed and Dangerous A Specter is Haunting Genetics
