I agree with your take on the article. The subject of the article was not
racism, of course. The subject was the "reparations" scheme advanced by
certain groups. Instead of considering the lack of worthiness of this
"reparations" scheme, some people have chosen to divert discussion to racism.
It's the old straw man tactic.
Useless hypotheses, etc.:
consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, and ego.
Everything that can happen has already happened, not just once,
but an infinite number of times, and will continue to do so forever.
(Everything that can happen = more than anyone can imagine.)
We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
