Arthur Schlesinger Jr., opponent of Afrocentrism, dead at 89

Douglas Martin:

However liberal, he was not a slave to what came to be called political correctness. He spiritedly defended the old-fashioned American melting pot against proponents of multiculturalism, the idea that ethnicities should retain separate identities and even celebrate them.

He elicited tides of criticism by comparing Afrocentrism to the Ku Klux Klan.

Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. R. I. P.
