But the real story is not how the news got it wrong—there’s been plenty of that since Monday. It’s how, mere hours later after telling a bullshit story, the news simply told a new story and expunged the previous one from its memory. Real-time accuracy isn’t always possible in journalism. But no one can call himself a journalist if he can’t acknowledge in the present what he got wrong in the past.

You always make excellent sense of America's screwed up race politics and it's really refreshing. As an interracial lesbian couple we spend a lot of time talking about power and privilege and your articles always provide great insight. Keep on being awesome!
Love you both.
