P.S. To Just Preceding Note On Black Identitarianism


K, Before you run off, or after you come back, consider this: there are commentators, public intellectuals and so on who write and speak on race and ethnicity who, I’d argue, deserve such a characterization and there are those who don’t. So while the characterization is vulnerable to its own reductive and insulting application, my thought is we have to, if we’re of a mind to, push past that possibility when we see the word and consider its use in relation to whomever and whatever and take stock of the actual case made.

As for me being the “better man,” never mind 4 paragraphs: I don’t need to read 4 syllables to reject that out of hand.
