The Wright Stuff 1

As much as I would like to, I have not yet been able to boil one of the Demon Princess’s posts down to a neat excerpt, with a quotation and a link.

But, damn, she can get to the heart of an issue.

All I can do is say, please, just go read this.

    Um, OK, I read it… was there supposed to be some insight? I’ve heard a ton of people say these quotes were out of context, but nobody says how their context would have changed anything. She also leaves a big chunk of the issue unexplored when she tries to say that Wright’s statements are born of some different experience blacks have had but does not confront the fact that many blacks don’t agree with him.

    She also pulls a classic either/or fallacy by claiming that if you don’t agree with him you are part of an America that admits no mistakes. There’s a middle ground that she apparently has no rebuttal for.
