David brooks race and dating
I have been late getting to David Brooks’ column on Ta-Nehisi Coates, “Listening to Ta-Nehisi Coates While White.” I was absorbed by the case of Sandra Bland, the young black woman who was found dead in a Texas jail cell, supposedly by her own hand.
So the thought Bland would or even could kill herself seems incredible.
When I did finally approach Brooks’ column it was with the usual sense of dread; I was particularly not in the mood for his well-established self-satisfaction, his pompousness, his condescension wrapped in smugness.
opinion columnist David Brooks is facing a storm of criticism after another seemingly tone deaf column.
His latest piece, “Listening to Ta-Nehisi Coates While White,” details his experience reading Mr.
There’s a Lincoln for every Jefferson Davis and a Harlem Children’s Zone for every K. Having all this on my mind, I rather doubted Brooks’ column was going to have any answers, and I was right.
As I thought of responding to Brooks I was filled with both anger and frustration.
