'Savage ratio'! Oven mitts won't keep you from getting burned by this scalding hot WaPo take on 'white Americans,' 'black athletes' and O.J. Simpson

O.J. Simpson joining Twitter has helped spark no hotter of takes than this Perspective op-ed in the Washington Post:


Oh my.

It’s pretty epic.

If you can’t (or don’t want to) get past the paywall, Newsbusters has a summary:

That’s quite an assertion. Can the author, Phillip Lamarr Cunningham, assistant media studies professor at Quinnipiac University, back it up? Nope. And he doesn’t even try. It’s just an excuse to slight black athletes who are insufficiently race-obsessed.

From the Perspective in the Post:

The car chase, coming in the middle of the fifth game of the NBA Finals, cast a brief pall on what had been a watershed moment for black athletes. To suggest that Simpson overshadowed a decade’s worth of goodwill toward black athletes would be an overstatement. But Simpson, arguably a major source of this goodwill, certainly made clear the conditions white Americans put on their goodwill, even as the nation’s greatest black athletes continued to thrill and amaze.

You can probably guess what came next, in addition to the eye rolls:


If you live long enough you’ll see everything.


Every hot take has its predictable elements.

Most of us here at Twitchy are old enough to remember, and yes, the story does bury the lede quite a bit.
