Racism in America....

....is mostly found among anti-racists these days.

//Justin Cohen, a contributor to the Huffington Post and former member of the education policy committee for President Obama's 2008 campaign, stated that his goal for 2017 is to have white people realize that we're all on the "racism spectrum" and that white people need to stop being so "sensitive" about being called racist.//

When he says "we", he really means "you."

I agree with you, Peter. I've lived in this country for over 5 decades and I have rarely seen evidence of racism. Its a fictional condition whose existence is promoted by individuals of nefarious intent. A fantasy, like the specter of UFOs or spirits returning from the dead to haunt the living, talk of racism is a canard to influence the weak minded and clingers on. How could it be otherwise?

You should try "reading" sometime.

I didn't say that racism was a fantasy.

I said that it exists.

Typically, on the anti-racist left, who want to distribute social goods on racial lines and who determine moral goodness on the basis of race.

For heaven's sake, the linked article is about such a racist.

So where do you conclude that I was denying the existence of racism in modern America?

I suspect that the result would not be entirely harmonious if people actually stopped being sensitive about being called racists.
