Ta-Nehisi Coates: “All Is Fog”

Which trait most accounts for the spectacular career of Ta-Nehisi Coates, The Atlantic’s race blogger–turned–intellectual superstar?

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    It makes me happy to know I go through my days blissfully unaware of what this asshole is writing about.

    • It seems that nay punk can write articles if given the opportunity.

      This guy is so inconsequential.

      • Drunk by Noon ✓

        He might be epistemologically inconsequential, but one of his stupid books is required reading at a local community college, now repeat that by 10,000.
        He’s wired into the system and likely makes at least a million a year just through mandated academic sales.
        Many entire insestious industries are like that.
        The leftists promote the careers of fellow leftists and they also squelch the careers of anyone else not walking in ideological lockstep, that also have “the right friends”.
        I think all of art, film, and entertainment are under that system of leftist patronage, that is paid for with our money.

          You just nailed the real problem. Without that these people would remain totally unknown outside of their tiny circle. By the way I would include M. Atwood when it comes to Canada. She without literary skills was required reading in high school for all my kids and they hated it both my sons and my daughters. Without that she would have remained unknown and as insignificant as she should be.

            The CBC LOVES Atwood – they treat her like a saint, even though her “writing” is really quite bad. Yet another reason I call the CBC the Communist BS Collective.

            I am very pleased to honestly say that I have never read any of Atwood’s books. lol

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            It really is a Pity that Margaret Atwood is too old and too ugly to get kidnapped by Boko Haram.

        • That system is falling apart, however.

          The gravy train will stop sooner than you think.

            I love it when you talk that way to me! 😉

          • I press all the right buttons.

          • JusticeVegas

            Yep, it sure will. The university system will soon collapse in America regardless of the numbers of suckers, I mean students, imported from China, India, and Pakistan paying the outrageous full-tuition.

          • Whatever one may think about foreign students, at least they will study subjects one can do something with. They also tend to keep their heads down and not complain about micro-aggressions or whatever people are mad at these days.

    There must be some kind of java program to randomly assemble words into a semblance of this kind of drivel

    Tiny-Hissy Coates, like Tariq Ramadan, is sometimes thought to be an ‘intellectual’.


  • SDMatt

    Ridiculous name, ridiculous man.

  • Shebel

    Take off the glasses .

  • Dana Garcia

    Why does Ta suffer so when he could easily relocate to somewhere more amenable?

      Hmmm, the Rorschach test above is tricky. I see a failed continent.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        It’s failed because schvartzes couldn’t organize a two-man rush to the shithouse.

  • Millie_Woods

    I bet he’d make a great president-for-life in some God forsaken hellhole on The Dark Continent.

    • Maggat

      Let’s crowd fund a one way ticket for the asshole. Throw one dart at a map of Africa, where it lands is where he will land.

  • laja kurc

    He reminds me of a black version of the Peter Seller’s character, Chancey Gardner, in the movie “Being There”. Today we would call it Aspergers Syndrome.

  • Shebel

    He sure does look like one smart Muther Fucker.
    He has gots a Military cap , a gristled beard–
    Military t-shirt— and
    GLASSES to hide—His
    DULL unfocused eyes.

  • Shebel

    It is so easy to be a Victim.
    You just have to sit there and –
    Mouth -OFF.
    You don’t have to worry about —
    Ever accomplishing Anything.
    How could you EVER accomplish anything ?
    You already got your ASS covered.
    You are a VICTIM.

    Fuck OFF !

  • Starlord

    Didn’t cbc have him in the front page of the website with an article & radio episode. Some Bullshit about whiteness… anyone else recall?

  • Shebel

    You are no better than a Politician.
    You are just Helping your PEOPLE.
    The Only way you can help- Is
    If they need Help.
    If YOU assholes would QUIT helping—-
    We might possibly all get along .
