Media Radar’s The Ethnicist

Yes, yes, we all love The Ethicist, Randy Cohen’s ethics-spewing character regularly featured in the New York Times and on NPR. But I’m harboring an even more sizable media crush on The Ethnicist, the new Radar Online columnist whose mission is drecribed thusly:
Once a month we’ll answer the impolitic questions you’ve been wondering about…Questions like: Why do certain black guys like big butts and why can’t they lie about it? Are Jews truly good with money? Do Koreans really eat dogs? (And if so, who brings them their slippers and newspapers?)
In the premiere Ethnicist, Radar takes on an age-old quandary: Why do African Americans smoke menthols? For the freakishly well-researched answer, go here.
