Sixty years ago in his most famous speech, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of his vision of an America transformed. "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character," he said. Was this an argument for a color-blind society, or should racism be thought of as structural and systematic?
Ibram X. Khendi, author of the best-selling book, " How To Be An AntiRacist ", argues that "the most threatening racist movement" is the drive for race-neutrality. This episode's guest, Bion Bartning , argues that instead of emphasizing our common humanity, the approach of Kendhi and others lumps people into simplistic racial groupings.
