In The Ring With Eusebius McKaiser Episode 23 - RACE AND RACISM (PART 1 OF 3): IF RACE IS BIOLOGICAL NONSENSE, SHOULD WE ABANDON THE LANGUAGE OF RACE?

In the first of a 3-part series on the work and thinking of Professor Lewis Gordon , specifically on aspects of anti-black racism, we tackle a few crucial responses from some people on aspects of 'the race debate':1. "Race is biologically meaningless...so stop talking about it! It is not real!"2. "I don't see race!" / "I don't see colour!"In a careful analysis of these tropes, this brilliant, leading global scholar on Black existentialism and anti-Blackness, gives us a preview of arguments and analysis from his forthcoming book, Fear of Black Consciousness. He rebuts, with patient explanation and argument, colour blindness and race eliminativist thinking, without denying the biological point. He shows, however, the bad faith with which many respond to conversation about race and racism.There is much more that emerges in the course of tackling these issues. Lewis is also a compelling speaker and storyteller, so you dig in.

Om Podcasten

On In The Ring With Eusebius McKaiser I tackle all the uncomfortable topics that dominate public debate. With my reputation for fearless debate as a former World Masters Debate Champ, and a background in law and philosophy, you can expect debates on everything from whether or not it is racist for a non-black person to quote the N-word, to questions of how to tackle inequality, whether people are responsible for unconscious biases, the ethics of refusing to be vaccinated, the status of animals, debating books, and much more! The crucial differentiator of this podcast series compared to others is that it is fearless in its debate orientation, and no topic is off bounds! However, my motto is: "You are entitled to be treated with dignity .... but NOT to have your worldview affirmed!"
