Is “White In Philly” a Much Needed Discussion Kept in the Closet for Too Long or Racist?




"Feeling any guilt over what was done before you were born is neurotic. Wallowing in it to this point is just plain sick."  Lawrence Auster.


The other day, a friend sent me Philadelphia Magazine article “White in Philly” written by Robert Huber.  He wanted to do a post on the article but was not quite sure if he now was a good time to do so with the overall climate in the country on the subject of race.  I reviewed the article, shared my experiences and offered to do a post on the article.
I re-read the article several times and took a day or two reflect upon the article itself and why the discussion of race has remained a third rail topic in America.

Below are a few excerpts which I have cut and pasted from the referenced article including my own views directly below each selection.
Should you wish to read “White in Philly” without interruption, please feel free to do so here.  It is a worthy read.
