As far as I'm concerned, Mayor Barry's wife is a saint for staying as long as she did. The man was on crack, in and out of rehab, busted with white powder pasted around his mouth corners, all while the city went to hell in a handbasket.

That may be true. However, many people would argue that black people are as human as any other human, and that most of the time, humans act in what they see as their best interests. And if a humongous majority of humans see one particular thing as being in their best interests, then it's a safe bet that it is. So if 90% of us solidly back a certain methodology, then that should stand as compelling evidence that this perspective is closer to objectively correct that the opposing one. I would...
