Here's to You, John Ridley: We're not worthy! We're not worthy!
I had one of those happy rare occasions this morning of waiting in my car after I'd parked to hear the end of a commentary on NPR. John Ridley, a Hollywood writer of some renown, apparently, who happens to be black had a bit about the Trent Lott episode on Morning Edition. It's hilarious, insightful and precisely on point--it's what I woulda said if I'd done the research! He's a good writer. Turns out, not long after that aired, breaking news via email shared Lott's stepping down. Just coincidence? YOU DECIDE.
