Washington Post columnist on "repressing gag reflex" at interracial marriage

The Washington Post's Richard Cohen has a reputation for saying weird, confusing things about race. For example, one recent column suggested that it took until very recently for him to realize why slavery was bad. For those who wondered if this was a) parochial cluelessness run amok or b) racism tentatively speaking its mind, your answer is now in.

Cohen is vile, the way it's evasively projected onto "conventional" people is vile, and it's damning that the Post would choose to publish this.
