9. Oh, SNAP!
A Princeton colleague, whose intellect exceeds her two male targets by a long shot, gets it right.

I've stayed out of this little contretemps, but now I'm happy to add my recommendation to Professor Harris-Perry's article. I've had my eye on Cornel and Tavis since the earliest days of the primary, when they were yammering on Tavis's NPR radio show about how "Obama's not really a brother, you know," referring to his white mother. Why don't we talk about Tavis's thousand-dollar suits and Hollywood suckupism instead? On Professor West, on whom I know a thing or two (well, really one thing, but I won't say), let's just discuss his privileged ensconcement at Harvard/Princeton and leave it at that.

The remark about middle-class "white" and Jewish men is simply beneath contempt.
