“Does Color-Blindness Perpetuate Racism?” A Debate w/Jamelle Bouie [AD FREE - AUDIO + VIDEO]
Today's episode is a recording of a debate that occurred a few weeks ago between me and Jamelle Bouie, who is a columnist for the New York Times. This debate was hosted by TED as well as Open to Debate, formerly known as Intelligence Squared. The motion was, "Does Colorblindness Perpetuate Racism?" Jamelle took the affirmative and I took the negative.

I really recommend that you listen to the whole debate and do share your thoughts in the comments.
