I completely understand your reaction, and yet I myself resist it. The principle that people should be judged based on who they are as individuals rather than based on the racial grouping in which they are deemed or deem themselves to belong is so obviously right that I refuse to abandon it, even in the face of intolerant attacks upon race-blindness from the very people who have been the historical victims of race consciousness until recent times. Once they stage an all-black graduation, they lose any moral standing they may have had to complain about an all-white graduation, of course, and they should have every expectation that the direct result of their short-sighted acts will be an increase in the very kind of white identitarianism and white supremacy they claim they vehemently oppose. They will likely get what they deserve. But not from me. I’m going to stay on the high ground and support race-blindness, the only real form of anti-racism there is.
