We cannot have honest productive discussions

Jay Tee,
New York, NY.

Seeing as many careers have been derailed, some high profile other less so, because of a hypersensitivity around candidly discussing race, the nation is going to have tough road ahead. “Oppression olympics”, wherein arguments are weight in proportion to the professed suffering of the speaker, fueled by the mob power of the Internet, has Critical Race Theory in preposterous proportions to dominate mainstream conversation. When we have to fear blacklisting and social stigma for speaking our mind, there can be no fair examination of ideas, which makes our chances at finding truth remote, and hope for progress slim.
