It’s almost part of Jamelle Bouie’s job description to accuse people of racism, so his tweet about my book today — based on a tendentious review — was par for the course:
here’s the review, which you could sum up as “this book is crypto-racist trash” https://t.co/4WyWMkD3eB

Still, even by his standards, this is low and dishonest about a book that advances national loyalty as a corrective to racial and partisan tribalism. Not that Bouie cares — if he let evidence get in the way of his rote and indiscriminate charges of racism, he’d be rendered practically mute.
