But this Black woman doesn't care for magazines that do stories about racism a lot of the time.
Amitabh Pal, who is always worthless (I'll never forget his defense of the Iraq War in 2006), wants to tell us about Mitt Romney's racism.
Is Mitt racist?
I would say "no" unless someone can give me proof otherwise.

They have 10 regular writers.
How many are Black?
How many Black writers does this magazine, that's so concern with racism, have?
So why the hell would I want to hear who The Progressive thinks is racist?
Let me be really clear, I find The Progressive to be racist.
Meanwhile my day began with "Top Five Racist Republican Dog-Whistles."
And I'm sitting reading White boy Alex Hern tell me, a Black woman, about racism. That's always cute, right?
And I'm thinking, I see 32 faces listed as writing staff for this magazine and not one is Black. So are they really in the position to call anyone else racist?

They want to do something about racism?

Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
