Obama and Race

OBAMA AND RACE….Who do I agree with more? Matt Yglesias?

Obama’s race is part of the story of his ascent. It’s just not, I think, a very complicated part of the story, not the sort of thing that calls for the weaving or unweaving of tangled webs about the psychology of race.

Or Max Sawicky?

I’ve never seen more demented shit about an African-American politician and race.

They’re both saying the same thing, but Max is shriller so I think I’ll go with him this time around. But go ahead and read them both.
