This chapter suggests a unique contribution by American academic philosopher Josiah Royce. He used the issue of race to title this volume. The chapter, given first as an address to the Chicago Ethical Society, examines the conception of race and ongoing race conflicts in the United States and elsewhere. The chapter raises significant questions about the ways in which race is understood and how race prejudice can be addressed. At its core, Royce presents two examples of good responses to race conflict, one from Jamaica and one from Trinidad. In each case, Royce holds that the key to fostering tolerance and peace is the development of a sound administrative and legal system that includes full participation by non-whites. For Royce, loyalty to loyalty is a commitment to one's causes in a way that fosters the loyalty of others.
