this paper is probably long since history, but when this bit about the NYT article and the response hit my radar almost simultaneously, I thought of you.

the response article has moved here btw.

I love it. What both the article and response have in common is that they find insidious ways to blame black americans in spite of acknowledging the effects of racism.

the thread on BV is pretty all over the map. someone tied in the super bowl coach thing, and it spiralled out from there. one poster pointed out what you just said - that anyone who wants to address these issues without bringing race or racism into the picture as factors is pretty much making very disingenuous statements right from the getgo.

i just found it interesting that this came up in a more mainstream media cross-section, as opposed to the context in which we were discussing it initially.
