Best of the Web Today: Statistics and Other Taboos - WSJ.com: "When politicians and media people call for "a conversation about race," one suspects that what they have in mind is an exchange so one-sided that it would be more lecture than conversation. A detailed confirmation of that suspicion comes from Jen Eyer, who is not from Charlotte but from Michigan. She is "statewide community engagement director for MLive Media Group," which publishes a website for a consortium of midsize Wolverine State newspapers.
Eyer has a post--one of a series on what are termed HOT BUTTON ISSUES--titled "How to Discuss Racial Issues on MLive Without Violating the Community Rules." It should be titled "How Not to Discuss Racial Issues . . .," because it consists of a list of seven things to avoid."
