The Cowardice of Ta-Nehisi Coates

Coates is really just a grifter.

He does the authentic black guy bit by living in Harlem (the gentrified part) and posing as a hostile black man. He’s checking off all the boxed for his benefactors.

ghostsniper: Rudyard Kipling's poem with the line, "That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld [tribute/protection-$]/ You never get rid of the Dane," comes to mind here.
