In pages or so, Mills highlights the unintentional but more often intentional omission of race and racism in white dominated political systems. From slavery, colonialization, imperialism and apartheid, Mills provides an overview of the on going racial oppression suffered by the majority of the world's population via the Racial Contract. A contract that separates white, human individuals from non-white, barbaric sub-persons.
A great deal of modern politics is about the demand of that inner self to be uncovered, publicly claimed, and recognized by the political system.
A lot of these recognition struggles flow out of the social movements that began to emerge in the s involving African-Americans, women, the LGBT community, Native Americans, and the disabled.
These groups found a home on the left, triggering a reaction on the right. Aren't we deserving of recognition? Haven't the elites ignored us, downplayed our struggles?
That's the basis of today's populism.

Fukuyama, a former neoconservative who later became a critic of the Iraq War and voted for Barack Obama innotes that each of these leftist groups is justified in seeking recognition.
But the tactic of associating a certain problem with a specific identity group, he adds, can backfire horribly: The problem is in the way we interpret injustice and how we try to solve it, which tends to fragment society.
In the 20th century, for example, the left was based around the working class and economic exploitation rather than the exploitation of specific identity groups. That has a lot of implications for possible solutions to injustice. For example, one of the problems of making poverty a characteristic of a specific group is that it weakens support for the welfare state.
Take something like Obamacare, which I think was an important policy. A lot of its opponents interpreted it as a race-specific policy: This was the black president doing something for his black constituents. I expressed similar concerns when I suggested that political correctness was partly responsible for the right-wing backlash that produced President Trump.
Fukuyama has some interesting thoughts about the campus free speech problem, which he claims is not a full-blown crisis, despite the occasional dust-ups.
He also discusses his experience as a student of Jacques Derrida, a French philosopher often lampooned by Jordan Peterson: You have an unusual background for a political scientist. You majored in classics at Cornell, then did graduate work in comparative literature at Yale, where you studied with Paul de Man.
Any memories from this journey through deconstruction. I decided it was total bullshit. They were espousing a kind of Nietzschean relativism that said there is no truth, there is no argument that's superior to any other argument.
Yet most of them were committed to a basically Marxist agenda.
That seemed completely contradictory. If you really are a moral relativist, there is no reason why you shouldn't affirm National Socialism or the racial superiority of Europeans, because nothing is more true than anything else. I thought it was a bankrupt way of proceeding and decided to shift gears and go into political science.
Peterson is often attacked for using the term "postmodern neo-Marxism" to describe campus leftist thinking, particularly in the humanities and social sciences.
Critics contend that there's really no such thing as a postmodern neo-Marxist, since postmodernism and Marxism are competing philosophies that disagree on a host of things. Fukuyama seems to agree with Peterson.

Stowe basically dismisses criticism from all sides by saying she endeavored to present a fair representation of slavery by illustrating it at its best and worst, awakening Northerners to the differences in slavery as it was practiced in the various regions of the South.
