Connecting the dots:

Henry Louis Gates arrested for breaking in his own home.

Comic veteran Dwayne McDuffie pitching a DC comic featuring black characters.

Ta-Nehisi riffing on the “I’m not a racist but…” canard.

Now all stories are worth reading on their own. Ta-Nehisi is one of the best in the business, it’s good to see McDuffie getting work…and the Gates story is funny in a way.

But what really fascinates me are the comments. P6 actually hipped me to this.
