Mr. McWhorter discussed some of the themes of his book Losing the Race: Self-Sabotage in Black America, published by The Free Press. In his book Mr. McWhorter argues that the black community has been greatly harmed by the unspoken assumption that significant black achievement is not possible until racism has been completely eradicated. Mr. McWhorter argues that African-Americans have made significant advances since the days of the civil rights movement. He also suggests that blacks should not isolate themselves politically by exclusively supporting the Democratic Party. Mr. McWhorter talked about how his book has been received and the thoughts that he has been led to as a result. After his presentation, Mr. McWhorter answered questions from members of the audience. close
