Unfortunately, it’s so wrong on so many levels, it’s sometimes hard to explain why without being, well, verbose (ahem). Luckily, there are writers whose clean language, pure logic, and persuasive arguments demand fewer words and more attention. Read Shikha Dalmia. (And while you’re at it, read The Black Commenter).

The world gives us — history gives us — these irrefutable case studies, yet the theories (and the oppression) persist.
