This is new.
In my work, I frequently encounter push-back to the effect that talking about the history and legacy of slavery and race is counter-productive, because this history is now irrelevant and discussing it only encourages racial divisions and a mentality of victimh0od. A cursory glance at the facts shows this logic to be fatally flawed, but this view is nevertheless quite common.
To my knowledge, however, this is the first time that anyone has proclaimed that I, and what I do, are “sheer evil.”
