Richard Cohen's columns are filled with racist assumptions and statements that have no place at The Washington Post. The latest instance is his assertion that the "conventional view" is to gag at interracial relationships (nevermind that 87% of Americans disagree). He previously wrote that a fear of Trayvon Martin was "understandable" given the way he was dressed at the time of his death. These views are reprehensible, and The Washington Post should not provide Richard Cohen with a platform to espouse his racist beliefs. Tell Jeff Bezos, owner of The Washington Post - It's time to fire Richard Cohen.

      "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." Racism is an evil, and we cannot stand by and do nothing or say nothing.

      Giving a voice to bigotry like this is tacit approval. Stop it. Now.

      Because I believe in a progressive and pragmatic America; I don't believe ignorance and racist ideology are entitled to a column in the Washingtonpost. I defend his right to speak just not a right to speak as an elevated columnist for the Washington Post. He's not entitled to that position. He can start his own blog or work for Fox News in a flurry of faux outrage like Juan Williams.

      RC does not exhibit a cogent understanding of the US or the world. The Washington Post is better than this and can do better than this.
