I had to take a break as soon as I got to Jonathan’s letters— the focus on Robin DiAngelos work is almost funny (sorry, is that rude?) for playing into exactly what Sam is criticizing about the approach taken in *Cynical Theories*. DiAngelos Anti-Racism for Dummies engages with the work of Foucault and Derrida about as rigorously as the authors of *Cynical Theories* do. Pretty useless in regards to the conversation being had.
Great writing from Sam but this is a long exchange so I will be returning to it later.
