Questions of Identity

There’s a remarkably bad-tempered argument taking place among racial identitarians at the moment (some links here), which makes the civility and intelligence of these remarks all the more notable. (For this blog, the Social Matter discussion was a reminder of the — similarly civilized — exchange with Matt Parrott that took place in the comment thread here.)

So the barking you can hear in the background serves as necessary context.

Unfortunately, it is not easy to imagine the separatist negotiations going smoothly.)
