7:45 - Sheena is a skeptic and eliminativist about race. What does that mean, and how does it compare to other approaches?
17:35 - Ibram Kendi's approach to thinking about race is understandable but wrong.
29:56: How to attempt racelessness in a world so used to the existence of race?
40:29 - what will "interracial" intimacy, marriage, and births do to current notions of race?
51:36 - Harlem Renaissance writer George Schuyler and satirizing the fiction of race
1;07:25 - Is Schuyler's skepticism about race partly why he drifted to the political right-wing?
