At this year’s Brooklyn Book Festival authors Baratunde Thurston, Rebecca Walker and Wesley Yang discussed “The Politics of Identity—Do They Still Matter?” moderated by Amitava Kumar.

The authors discussed “the stereotypes we still have of each other, both positive and negative, and examine the ways we run from and cling to various aspects of identity, race, and heritage.”

Thurston in particular was late, but stirred up the crowd with his pronouncement that post-racial America is some bullshit, and other conversations he’s had.
