Unsurpisingly, Greg Laden has relapsed into making traditional racial and ethnic distinctions (he notes the racial difference in height between Europeans and Pygmies), which only a few days ago he claimed were too ambiguous to discern. In this post, Greg speaks of “Euro-Americans” and a group of Pygmies called the “Efe” with whom he interacted with in the DRC.
Which brings me to my point: race denial is an insincere rhetoric. The same liberals who insist that “race” doesn’t exist relapse into making everyday racial distinctions with the rest of us. These categories are not really difficult to understand. The liberal denial of them is nothing more than a posture adopted in service to political correctness.
