It’s often the case that when confronted with evidence of racial inequality, people offer loud protests that we need to stop thinking with racial categories and become post-racial. But people aren’t really being asked to ignore racial categories; they’re being asked to ignore the inequality, the hierarchy. They’re being told that to talk about race is to reproduce racism, when in fact talking about race might be the only way to confront and extinguish racism.
