For professional reasons, I'd rather not comment on this piece. I'll just note how fond editors are of writing headlines about "the end of blackness" or the "the end of black politics" or "the end of affirmative action" or "post-black" or "post-racial." Freudian much? That has nothing to do with Matt's article. Just a small pet peeve of mine. Anyway, consider this an open thread. I'd love to hear what folks thought.
