Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns


Race without ideology

Charles Johnson has the lead essay in the current issue of The American Scholar, "The End of the Black American Narrative." Johnson's art and mind focuses on how the old true story of victimization (now turned into ideology) is no longer good or useful. His good pen shows the way toward a new story. I recommend it.

An earlier version of this essay was delivered as the keynote lecture at Washington and Lee University (Lexington, VA) at a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration on January 21 of this year. Go Generals!

Can I make it 4 and a 1/2 cups, and ask why this guy isn't teaching sociology?

Fine essay. Thank you, Peter. Johnson's "Middle Passage" is a good novel, not least because of its deliberate experimenting with inconsistent points of view.
