Victor Davis Hanson, writing for the National Review, “countered” President Obama’s speech last week, specifically the passage on The Talk African-American parents have to give their kids, with a narration of the Talk he received and gave: Stay away from Young Black Men. 

Ta-Nehisi Coates breaks down how that Talk doesn’t actually make anyone safer (not even in Hanson’s personal examples) and is, quite frankly, stupid. And racist.
