Today we are joined by Greg Thomas, who has thought and written extensively on one of the most vexing conundrums in our culture: race relations.

Greg attempts to chart a new course, one that includes the postmodern insight into oppression and its effects, but challenges its fixation on racial and victim identity.

He appeals to us to appreciate the lived history of black folk and how traditional black expressions of the values of family and character provide a foundation for present day excellence.

Ultimately Greg challenges the very concept of race itself, inviting us into a deeper transracial human identity, one that is being revealed by genetic science and which allows us to embrace the good, bad, ugly, and beautiful roles that all peoples have played in the history of humanity.
