Infantilizing Black People

| | Comments (0)

At Volokh, a black RI politician pushes for the removal of terms that remind black people for slavery. Volokh's further recommendations are precious, and his analysis of the psychology behind this seems right to me.

Then, in another case of what Volokh calls "the infantilization of the very group that one is trying to defend", we find a lawyer defending a black father who killed his son, not just because he couldn't help it but because the effects of slavery caused him to do it. I don't think this is much different from what John McWhorter calls separatist morality.
