Quote of the Day – Jehmu Greene Edition Part 2
“A lot of people have been accused of being racist for addressing the way she speaks. What [McWhorter] forgets is most of the people who went after her, many of those commentators on Twitter, were African Americans. So this whole conversation is also another way of just throwing the ‘r word’ out there. ‘He’s a racist, she’s a racist, you’re a racist.’ That shuts down conversation and we’re not going to proceed in dealing with racial anxiety, dealing with our implicit bias if we keep throwing that ‘r word’ out there.”
Nice to see a black liberal saying that this isn’t something our society should just accept.
