    I ll get all of my disclaimers out of the way first I am a fan of TNC but I also resent what he symbolizes He is a great writer in his own right and he has the kind of co signers in publishing and journalism that have offered him a platform that he has rightfully and eloquently expanded upon, utilized and maximized appropriately and used to catapult himself into the American race dialogue as one of the most prolific writers on race during our generation My resentment of what he symbolizes com I ll get all of my disclaimers out of th...
