A Black scholar’s contrarian take on antiracism

Cancel culture can be about consequences, but it can also damage the causes it attempts to champion. John McWhorter teaches linguistics, American studies and music history at Columbia University, and he joins host Krys Boyd to make the case that people of color are sometimes harmed by well-meaning antiracists who sometimes lose sight of the thing they are fighting against. His book is called “Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America.”
