Ta-Nehisi Coates chimes in

Posted in Campus, Media by Evan Lisull on 6 November 2008

Ta-Nehisi CoatesWell, kind of. For those of you who aren’t Atlantic junkies, Coates is one the great bloggers at the magazine’s sites, who has become a de facto expert on race relations in America. As a long shot, I fired off an email to him about the cartoon controversy, not expecting any sort of response. Yet he kindly replied, with the best four word answer that I’ve heard in awhile:

no accounting for irony. [sic]

Well played, sir. I suppose that’s why they pay him the big bucks at the Atlantic.
