those adorable intact black families
What I saw: A young family of five — father, mother, three young children, well-dressed, well-behaved, enjoying their night out, too. Except for the well-behaved children — mythical creatures with which we have no personal experience with — the family was unremarkable.

But they were black. And my husband whispered that in a nation where 70 percent of black children are born into homes without fathers, it was great to see a picture-perfect black family dining together. "I almost want to go give the guy a high five," he said, somewhat sheepishly.

I've been reeling from this article for a while, not sure where to begin. I don't even know what to say.

What condescending, paternal, racist bullshit. It's not even worth taking apart--it's just that bad.

My favorite part is this is the person that National Review trots out to defend Rush Limbaugh.
