“To ‘discuss race’ would be equivalent to ‘discussing the cover of a book’ before the book is even read. For who does such things, if not to be afraid of knowing the book’s contents? It’s the same example as stalling to meet someone, for fear of either being exposed or knowing something one does not wish to hear of the other. This, in truth, promotes fear.
Why discuss the external, when there’s an infinite amount more details to discuss of the internal?
The politician who sympathizes with race, does not sympathize with the culture of that race being equivalent to the contents of a book.
The fearful leader is not a leader.”– Modern Romanticism
