Race Questions and Prejudices

(p.1089) 33 Race Questions and Prejudices
The Basic Writings of Josiah Royce, Volume II
John J. McDermott
Fordham University Press

This chapter explores race questions and prejudices. The numerous questions and prejudices which are aroused by the contact of the various races of men have always been important factors in human history. However, they promise to become, in the near future, still more important than they have ever been before. Such increased importance of race questions and prejudices, if it comes to pass, will be due not to any change in human nature, and especially not to any increase in the diversity or in the contrasting traits of the races of men themselves, but simply to the greater extent and complexity of the work of civilization. The chapter then considers a few principles which seem to be serviceable to anyone who wants to look at race questions fairly and humanely.

Keywords:   race questions, prejudices, human history, human nature, diversity, civilization, race
