Good piece in the Washington Post’s “Outlook” section yesterday by Jonetta Rose Barras on the need for African Americans to continue the discussion started by Bill Cosby. Highlights include: “[T]he orthodoxy of an aging civil rights mafia exaggerates the role of racism” and “African Americans and their leaders may want to endorse [conservative Robert] Woodson’s proposal for a ‘one-year moratorium on whining about white folks.’ When groups gather, they should leave the excuses of ‘racism and white folks out of the room,’ says Woodson.”
