Ouch. that's going to leave a mark

It is not safe to debate Chait

I edit down a Jon Chait post

Quin Hillyer @QuinHillyer

Follow Obama: racism 'deeply rooted' in U.S. I disagree. Rather than "deeply rooted," it's "mostly buried." As in near-dead.

Hillyer, who is quoted above, participated last year in an unpleasant exchange with yours truly, in which he concluded, “We’re not oblivious to racism; we just want to transcend it by leaving it out of discussions where it doesn’t belong.” Apparently the places it doesn’t belong include an interview about race with BET — which is to say, it doesn’t belong anywhere
