Registration is closed

You are invited to a scheduled Zoom meeting for the Sophisticated Gents Book Club -  Dec 16, 2021 03:00 PM Eastern Time

You are invited to a discussion of a controversial set of ideas in a book by John McWhorter.  Is "Woke" a way to counter White Supremacy, or should black people just get their own act together, and what is "Critical Race Theory" about?

We will discuss --

"Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America".  

Not everyone may agree with what McWhorter has to say.

The author is a black man who writes about racial tension, and he says that anti-racism rhetoric (used by black people and by others) is causing harm for ourselves.  What makes his work especially sensitive is that he describes the anti-racism as a type of "religion" that has become a widely accepted rhetoric without enough challenge by black people.  Note: I define anti-racism rhetoric as using word-phrases like "Woke" and "Defund the Police" and "White Privilege" as rhetoric. 

A short introduction to his ideas can be viewed on YOUTUBE --
