Ross Douthat Mentions “Anti-Whiteness“ In The NEW YORK TIMES

From iSteve commenter jb:

OT, but I noticed that Ross Douthat’s most recent op-ed uses the term “anti-whiteness”, and I suddenly wondered how often that term had appeared in the New York Times. It turned out to be four times, all within the past seven years: three by Ross, who uses the term about the same way we would use it here, and once, dismissively, by Brent Staples, in a piece where he addresses the critically pressing issue of the treatment of blacks in pre-Civil Rights newspapers.

Of course I had to Google “anti-blackness” next, but Google has stopped making it easy to count articles, and I’m not even going to try. But good for Ross: whatever else you might think of him, he is, however tentatively, going there.
