It’s safe to say that this is not a safe topic.
(The preceding sentence, ironically, may be the only one in this article that’s truly uncontroversial.)
It’s nebulous and complicated and resistant to simplification. It’s hard to discuss sensitively, and even harder to discuss meaningfully. Basically: the odds were stacked against it from the beginning.
So this article won’t change the world. It might not even change your mind. But at the very least, it’ll probably change the way you view “race”, for better or for worse.
