Let’s not deodorize the dialogue on race, let’s allow some funk to come to the surface.
Cornet West via Twitter

Our insistence on being ironic, cute, or lazy when talking about race makes it much harder to engage with the very serious ways in which race figures into our lives.

For them, post-racialism is merely a cudgel used to quiet those who insist that America deliver on its promise of equality for all its citizens.
