    Defend your view.
    Explain how Taylor’s view counters Appiah’s racial eliminativism. What is Taylor’s view of the reality of race and how does it contrast with Appiah’s? Why does Taylor disagree with Appiah’s view that we should stop using the concept of race? Which author do you think is right (if either) and why?
