I was nowhere near Pittsburgh last night. Besides, I print my B's in cursive.
All kidding aside though, for those of you who wonder from time to time why I force conversations on race and perception even when you're tired of hearing about those things, that link above is why.
I have one bit of advice for the young woman referenced in the link above: Next time you use a mirror to decorate your face with an alphabet, stick with something easy like the letters "A," "H," "I," "M," "O," "T," or "U." No matter how poor your penmanship, there's no danger of writing those letters backwards.
And I have one question for my peers in media: Why were you so eager to run with this now-proven-false story, in spite of the painfully obvious red flags it waved from the very beginning?
