Courtland Milloy isn’t happy about the Post’s internal reaction to their Black Man series. From their internal critique board:
The absence of any postings about the black man series (beyond superficial accolades) tells me more about race than the series itself ever could. This newspaper launches a project to examine the so-called “attitudes and perspectives of black men,” and our response is, essentially: no comment. Why? The Washington Post could have published these same storiesâ€”with the same prominence–as part of the regular coverage. Why not? If it takes a special project to value human interest stories when the human is “black,” then its not black men that need examining; it’s the Post.
