How to Identify the Racists

Author James Baldwin explained it:
Every time I attend a conference of white writers, I have a method for finding out if my colleagues are racist. It consists of uttering stupidities and maintaining absurd theses. If they listen respectfully and, at the end, overwhelm me with applause, there isn’t the slightest doubt: they are filthy racists.
Hat tip to Ron McCamy, who responded on Facebook to our post on Ta-Nehisi Coates with this quote.
