Full of RaceWIN

This is a very good post, and a great step forward to facilitating better communication between the many sides to this debate, imo. Go Tempest!

At the same time, Mary Ann Mohanraj, guest-blogging on John Scalzi's Whatever, has some great coverage of the basics of discussion of race
. And it underscores something that I think gets missed a lot: pointing out he’s been racist is not a scathing attack on his character — it’s just someone pointing out that’s he’s messed up, like a friend pointing out that you’ve got snot hanging off your nose. Wipe up the snot, get on with your life.
