Is John McWhorter a dumb ni**er or just Uncle Tom?

Not a Klan Granny here. I'm watching an episode of Real Time from a couple weeks ago and this guy just irritates the fuck out of me! Because for as much as he may get me to agree with him, he also presents as a lazy, mean, dog-whistling (white) man. He reminds me of one of those middling characters in The Fountainhead.

Are you having a rough night, sweetie?

What the fuck is your problem? He's a smart, charming man who makes important observations that are unpopular with the Woke.

I've always thought that if you scratch a woke activist you find a genuine racist underneath. OP just proved my point.

Tell me about it. I'm a Black person with views similar to those of John McWhorter. I've been watching him and his discussion partner, the more conservative Glenn Loury, for a few years now and they are members of a small group of Black intellectuals who are willing to publicly criticize Wokeness. They've invited proponents like Ibram X. Kendi on their show, but their offer is never accepted because the Kendis of the world would get crushed in a debate. Whenever I post something in support of a McWhorter statement, there's always someone who calls me a racial slur, a self-hating minority or accuses me of only pretending to be Black. I get this from Woke Blacks and Whites. It's juvenile and insulting.

Here's a recent episode of The Glenn Show, in which they talk about the problem with the Woke's concept of "Equity."

Here's another good episode. McWhorter and Loury realize they're fighting an uphill battle, but they're fighting. I didn't agree with their take on Scott Adams, who I believe knew exactly what he was doing.
