Open The Skull And Take It Out!

Somebody called John Allen Muhammad has identified a need to train a “new generation of black minds”. I am all for more training of black people to use their minds better, as I am all for more training of white, red, yellow and polka-dotted people to use their minds better. But I wonder whether we now need to fear that he, or just silly people in his audience, are going to posit that “the black mind” is something inherently different from the white mind, in the same way as some hold that male and female minds are wired differently. And then I wonder in what this difference will be said to consist.
