The most engaging conversations about race that I've seen lately are between John McWhorter and Glenn Loury. I offer an excerpt not to agree or disagree with what they say, but to suggest that their demeanor and forthrightness serve as a model for how these sorts of conversations ought to happen.

I'd sure like to take that class.
