I have several thoughts, but as I am sitting in a cold car with a buncha melting groceries, let me just make one point which I hope might combine Toni and your sentiments: there are multiple magnificent fifty-dollah words in this piece which a great many hating and hateful white folk wouldn’t know if they whacked 'em the side if the head. That, sir, is insult to injury, when the easily-threatened White is faced with the deadly combination of grace, courage, moral authority, intelligence, education and emotional maturity. All of which, kindly, too many don’t possess (or, please, none of them would have voted Trump either time, as the very least of measurements). When the only thing one has to wave around to prove supremacy is skin color, as opposed to excellence, well. If one is to gauge the word “supremacy" by its unfortunate attachment to “white,” I daresay that the superlative has rather long lost any luster. What a great article. Thank you. Now my seats are soaked. Worth it, too.
