Tim Wise » Asked and Answered: Reflections on White Anti-Racism, My Work and Certain Recurring Critiques

See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND Guest Profiles

Although one would hope that those seeking to criticize others (especially when it comes to questioning motives and core integrity) would take the time to really get to know those about whom they issue various condemnations, the fact is, most people won’t. Perhaps it’s just too time-consuming, or gets in the way of the desire to draw attention to oneself by publicly slamming someone else, especially in a culture like ours, where such criticism can be seen by thousands of people at the push of a keyboard button. So be it, and have at it. There’s plenty of bandwidth to go around, and I assume that in the end, criticisms will last only to the extent they are verified by evidence, rather than contradicted by it.
