I analyse the political, economic, and cultural circumstances that have given rise to persistent political disputes about race (known colloquially as "the culture war") among a subset of Americans. I argue that they point to a deep tension between widely held normative aspirations and pervasive and readily observable material facts about our society. The characterological pathologies this gives rise to are discussed, and a normatively preferable path forward for an individual attempting to reconcile themselves to the current social order is suggested.
