For the purpose of this presentation the "we" in our reflection on "who we are" means we the members of the Society for the Study of Black Religion, and more generally, "we" means we black folk engaged in the academic study of black religion. And we black folk engaged in the academic study of black religion are a subset of a still more inclusive we--we black academics engaged in our various academic studies. In reference to the more general question, Who are we black academics? Accordingly, much of what I shall offer here-now is directly indebted to reflection on work by Cornel West.

Race Matters is a social sciences book by Cornel West. The book was first published on April 1, by Beacon Press. The book analyzes moral authority and racial debates concerning skin color in the United States. The book questions matters of economics and politics, as well as ethical issues and spirituality, and also addresses the crisis in black American leadership. The book consists of an introduction, followed by eight essays, many of which previously appeared in other publications, such as The New York Times Magazine , Dissent and Z Magazine.
In order, these essays are:. Michiko Kakutani praised Race Matters , writing in The New York Times 'one can only applaud the ferocious moral vision and astute intellect on display in these pages', though she criticized his proposed solutions to racial problems as 'vague and sentimentally utopian'.
A positive review in The Washington Post said 'there are parts of this book that are as moving as any of the sermons of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Race Matters received a positive review in Publishers Weekly , which called the book 'powerful' and said that the essays 'solidify [West's] position as one of the nation's leading public intellectuals' .

There is no American nation per se. The USA is a multiethnic state. After saying all that, I nevertheless firmly believe progressives and socialists must advocate building new nation-states based on ending old ethnic divisions. We must fight for nonracial, color-blind societies as the African National Congress advocates for the new South Africa. But, I also recognize, that such a transformation, including for South Africa, is only possible with the end of capitalism, a system which breeds divisions and bigotry.
