There is a flaw in NPR's logic ... and it's not so little ... in fact it's like the elephant in the room. If America is the inherently, irredeemably, systemically racist country that NPR and its listeners would have us believe, why would ANYONE check one of those little boxes next to race? Even a black person, as dark as the ace of spades, isn't REQUIRED to tick the box ... it's purely voluntary. So why would any rational person - especially a "privileged" white person - intentionally "handicap" their chance at employment or enrollment by falsely ticking the box?
