I do not. I wrote as a white liberal who in the 1960s thought that if the system changed – the law on voting rights expired, discrimination on grounds of race became illegal, black people were elected to higher offices – white racists would understand the stupidity and illogical and evil of their prejudices. But what white racists (or white liberals) think is next to the point. My nostalgia for my own naivete – like the kind of old-fashioned, generous mainstream anti-racist myth that flatters Northern White Liberals – reveals the boundaries of my perspective and I apologize for expressing myself so uncomfortable. “
