As the handsome @CharlesMBlow so wisely cautions: beware the perverse, one-Negro-at-a-time mindset that can set black professionals in white spaces at one another's throats. Preach, Charles.

Read what's surely the most moving #Pulitzer speech I've heard. (If my journalistic legacy ends up being that I was once @BrentNYT's editor — and didn't rush him to file — I'd be absolutely good with that.)

“This debased depiction of blackness underwrote a white supremacist impulse that metastasized into every aspect of American life,” wrote @BrentNYT recently about the scourge of blackface. If this is any indication, he might win the Pulitzer again.
