I stumbled across this and thought it was wildly tendentious. Was Rawls really utterly unaware of the basic facts of American history?
But then I watched this, and it has a much more extensive, much more convincing discussion of Rawls, traditional political liberalism, and race; and trying to adapt the Rawlsian framework to include racial justice. Very, very good:
I reckon Mills just wanted to include that Chris Rock bit.
