By dismantling the narrow politics of racial identity and selective self-interest, by going beyond 'black' and 'white,' we may construct new values, new institutions and new visions of an America beyond traditional racial categories and racial oppression.
The 'We Have Overcome' generation has run out of intellectual creativity but refuses to leave the political stage.
The crisis of black politics can only be resolved through the development of multiclass, multiracial, progressive political structures.
