Black in America

I'm conflicted about this column that ran recently in the Washington Post. At first, I was looking for the headline indicating this piece from Courtland Milloy was satirical.

Certainly, it's generally understood that not all black men are wearing bandannas, covered in jail ink, smoking joints on the corner and figuring out ways to rob the neighborhood convenience store.

Or is it?

I don't know what to think anymore.

Yeah I'm feeling strange about this one too. I kept skimming through it to see where the punchline was, but I couldn't find it. I mean, seriously? lol.

Welcome, D.P. Thanks much for dropping by the hood.

And I really, really thought it was something from The Onion that made its way into the Post. In a way, I wish it had been something like that.

Yeah me too, it's kinda disappointing coming from him. And actually I've been on here (check your older posts. I was just a little late in the discussion, lol.)
