Yeah, I'm so sick of those blacks who aren't "real" black. "Those people" who are bad at being black, or just get black all wrong. Put 'em back on track, Randall! Back on the black track!
I thought Jerry Large had a good column about his book in the Seattle Times.
Nice interview with Mr. Kennedy on KUOW this a.m., which, due to the fact it took me 1.5 hours to get from CapHill to Wallingford, I was able to listen to in its entirety.
Especially liked his observation on the changing perception of "Uncle Tom" in black culture.
Charles, if being a successful black makes you a sellout, then rest assured that you will never be a sellout.
look, charles called clarence thomas an uncle tom, which i was excoriated for just a month ago on this very board.
i look forward to his excoriation for employing this archaic term.
Which is kind of ironic @6, since the Uncle Tom of Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel was anything BUT a sell-out...
