It should come as no surprise that Victor Davis Hanson’s generational advice has met with mixed results. But when you are more interested in a kind of bigoted nationalism than your actual safety, this is what happens.
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.
