Guest Blog: On Making Yourself Right – The Atlantic

This is a well-written piece on how Andrew Breitbart lied repeatedly to advance his political agenda.  While his death is not a celebratory event, it is important that we place his work in the proper context.  Particularly the damage he sought to inflict on Shirley Sherrod.  He intentionally lied about her life and work and there is no escaping that fact.  I agree with Ta-Nehisi Coates in his analysis.  Breitbart used his extremism to inflict harm on innocent people.  That is reprehensible and should be acknowledged as his life is reviewed.  

Coates is a senior editor for The Atlantic and his blog is reposted here:
