I would have thought such a silly question answers itself. A fellow named Damon Young, who sometimes writes for the New York Times, agrees . . . but his answer is different from mine. My take:
[T]he above conversation reminds me of the conversation I imagined myself having with the kind of person who wrote Young’s piece at The Root — or better yet, a woke white person who subscribes to such a philosophy:
Woke Person Whose Race Does Not Matter: Hey, let’s have a conversation about race!
Me: Um, OK.
WPWRDNM: So anyway, I think whiteness is a plague on society!
Me: I just remembered I have something else to do.
WPWRDNM: No problem. Let’s resume the conversation soon!
Me: Sorry, I have something else to do then too.
