Thanks. I mention your recent discussions on Applied Legal History and how this book fits in.

Fantastic work, Brando. I really liked the introduction, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the book.

Congratulations Brando! I can't wait to read the rest of the book.

Eric Muller

Congratulations.
Does the book address any of these questions? And if so, can you give a glimpse of how you think about them?
(1) How does the racial shaming you endorse work in a situation where there is disagreement among members of the race about what is likeliest to advance the race's interests?
(2) How does the racial shaming you endorse work in a situation where a person understands his/her race as just one component of his/her identity, and he/she on a given issue supports a policy that advances a non-racial component even if it's at the expense of the racially defined interest?
(3) How does the racial shaming you endorse apply to people who have parents from different racial groups?

Brando Simeo Starkey

Well, my book discusses actual people so answering abstract questions is unfeasible. But I argue that those who do reject notions of racial solidarity should be permitted to "opt out" and be free from criticism.
