This is a dialogue on American racism written years before most white intellectuals addressed racial injustice. The white author and Robeson, an African American anthropologist and civil rights activist discuss the inequality of opportunity, the factors providing obstacles, the assurance that given equal chance, the percentage of success would be equal. In final analysis, while they are together on ends, they differ sharply on means. In conclusion, Buck urges willingness to change, acceptance of sacrifice and some degrees of security for the greater goal
