Ta-Nehisi Coates On Stephen Colbert -- His Take on Black Protest, Obama and How Far Gone We Are

Hope is for us to go to pastors for, not Coates as a black intellectual.

The discussion on whiteness is important.

2. It's a valid point that every immigrant group has been seen, at least temporarily, as non-white.

The racism of whiteness has been a taboo subject with whites, except when they validate it together in "safe" spaces.
