Provocative writer John McWhorter argues that African Americans' common front on racial issues masks a private debate. His new book of essays takes on affirmative action, diversity, reparations and profiling to explain why African Americans remain a race apart 40 years after the Civil Rights Act. McWhorter joins host Neal Conan to explore the ideas in McWhorter's book, Authentically Black.
