Via an email conversation, it’s come to my attention that if you only read the title of this post, you’d come away with the impression that I was slagging Ed Morrissey for race-baiting. Because that charge is so loaded, I want to make it absolutely clear that I wasn’t.
Go ahead and click the hyperlink above. That’s the part where you see the words the title of this post.
Now read the title of the post. That’s the title that gave you the false impression that SEK “was slagging Ed Morrissey for race-baiting.”
Once you read the title you’ll see how silly that notion is.
Go ahead. I’ll wait right here.

Who could have possibly read that as SEK “slagging Ed Morrissey for race-baiting”?
How dare you read what he wrote?!
