I find the short essay is racist, but probably not for the reason most
people would think.  I think it is racist because it conjectures the
motives of all blacks are explained by the motives of former black slaves.
The phrase "when their forbears were slaves" is an incredibly sloppy
generalization, so anything which follows is intellectually unsupportable.

I highly doubt that the essay was written by Russ Nelson.

If it was, he was not in his right mind, and will correct it.

Hope you are OK, Russ.
