Culture Matter; Race Doesn't
The ancient Greeks, from Homer to Aristotle, divided humanity into two general categories: there were Greeks, and there were barbarians- barbaroi, people went "bar bar" when they spoke. The coupling of race with culture has proven doggedly persistent. Here in the 21st century, it finds overt expression in not only among coarse bigots, but also among scholars who style themselves as "race realist." The idea is also prevalent among many of today's progressives- as a disquieting shadow-suspicion that is typically left unspoken. If we are to reject the old-time view that the problem is race, then we must take culture more seriously that we have in recent decades. How are we to understand the extraordinary cultural disparities in so glaringly evident in the globalized world of the present? How is the role of culture to be candidly addressed? How do we begin conversation?
