willamette weak again

I find the cover to the Willamette Week somewhat awkward.  See it here.  Cover of the back of a black athlete’s shaved head, a bead of sweat falling down.

The Onion actually once made a parody of this peculiar media trope.

We also see in the story the weird line from a friend of the rich sports team owner about how that line about him having many black friends is true in his case, because… he golfs with Clyde Drexler and stuff.

And this first comment is a weird one about this fluff piece being a hit piece.
