42. Folks here have always preferred to talk "at" us
As if we don't understand our communities/lives/situations better than those for whom this is purely an academic exercise or an excuse to break their arms patting themselves on the back.

I share Cornell's irritation that so many of the Wall Street assholes that gave us the global financial crisis are still walking free. If he had stuck with actual issues and not meandered squarely into straight up whining that "the big man didn't return my calls," I might have a bit of sympathy for him. Instead, he's been getting his ass handed to him right and left for his bigoted, petty and ridiculous criticisms of the president and imho he deserves every damn bit of it.

Any black man who has made his living educating, working and living amongst over privileged white folks and who wants to call another black man "fearful" of other black men based on nothing but his own misguided sense of projection deserves the foot up the ass that he's been getting.
