Moral responsibility is individual, not collective. It is volitional, not deterministic. Moral responsibility is based on an individual’s choices, not on one’s racial membership.
On Martin Luther King Day–and every day–we should focus on the antidote to racism and alternative to racial thinking: individualism.
Some of the confusion in thinking about matters of race stems from the ambiguity in the terms that we use. I am going to take a stab at suggesting operational definitions for a couple terms in our discussion of race.

“Facts don’t stop being facts if you are Black — and you are wrong.”
It is important to recognize that people are not prisoners of their subconscious and have the power to re-program it by correcting false ideas, including racism, through reason.

“It’s time to stop telling black Americans what we’re allowed to believe.”
What explains the fact that over 80% of professional basketball players are black, as are about 70% of professional football players?
what justifies diversity? Nothing but unsupported assertions, repeated endlessly, piously and loudly.
Institutional or systemic racism is enshrined by many of America’s institutions of higher learning, including Harvard and Yale.
Both white supremacists and anti-racists believe “race is an immutable attribute of who we are.”
In recent times, there is an average of 9,252 black-on-black murders every year. Over the past 35 years, that translates into nearly 324,000 blacks murdered at the hands of other blacks. Only a tiny percentage of blacks are killed by police.

There is a crisis within the Black community that one cannot pin on racism.
Random Thoughts While Not Out ‘Protesting’
How cultural Marxists coopted the phrase “black lives matter” to instigate protests and riots to push a racist, anti-capitalist narrative to gain political power, while making Americans of all colors worse off.
Only in a society where individual rights are recognized and the government’s sole role is to protect them, will racism be eradicated.
The recent murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis was ghastly and reminds us of the hideous racial injustice directed against black Americans in the nation’s past.
The true plight of black people has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been called “systemic racism.” Instead, we need to look at the responsibilities of those running our big cities.
Black lives matter. Black businesses, not so much.
Whether one agrees with Adam’s views on “wet markets,” the origin of COVID-19, or the benefits of veganism, the “social justice” attacks on Bryan Adams as a “racist” are misguided. Far from being a racist, Bryan Adams is a victim. Bryan Adam’s accusers owe him an apology.
It may be perplexing to some, but I believe that our nation has made great progress in matters of race, so much so that imaginary racism and racial hoaxes must be found.
That innovative black Americans flourished in late 19th- and early 20th-century America is a little-known part of our heritage.
Multiculturalism today celebrates all cultures but it is the poor who ultimately pay the price of that celebration in stunted development, missed opportunities and blighted lives.
