The bulk of his remarks addressed, however, different groups seeing each other as deficient. He acted out the differences between marching bands at predominantly black and predominantly white colleges. “Africans have a different meter, and Africans have a different tonality,” he said. Europeans have seven tones, Africans have five. White people clap differently than black people. “Africans and African-Americans are right-brained, subject-oriented in their learning style,” he said. “They have a different way of learning.” And so on.
Does the Detroit Free Press believe that to achieve racial understanding, we must agree that African-Americans and whites clap differently, have different brains, and have different ways of learning? That in order to believe in the equality of African-Americans, I have to agree that their brains are biologically different?
