Probably some context is needed. I was in a restaurant telling this lady that when Thomas Sowell did multivariable analysis, black-Americans didn’t get lower pay than white-Americans. What I meant was that when you included IQ, the kind of degree that black-Americans got from college and years worked, the pay gap between white and black Americans pretty much disappeared. I don’t know how well I made my point but I doubt that my presentation really mattered that much. The narrative was what mattered.
Since then I have always been interested in whenever leftists label this or that argument as being black or white. (There are very few Asian arguments for some reason.) It’s been my experience that it’s a rhetorical flourish to avoid countervailing opinions.
