Lawsuit or Black-mail?

The Washington Square News, NYU's campus-wide newspaper (as opposed to The Commentator, the Law School's broadsheet that generously allows me to air my private bundle of biases, delusions, and unexamined prejudices twice a month) recently printed a letter from a self-righteous student (actually, "self-righteous" may be redundant), who decried any attempt to deny the irresistable logic and ultimate justice of reparations to blacks as immoral and racist (which is apparently much worse that being merely immoral). In this brief piece, occasioned by the recent reparations lawsuit, Professor McWhorter explains exactly why that student is wrong.
