Show-Trial Rhetoric Took Down Ascend Charter's Founder / John McWhorter (The Atlantic, November 2019)
“Overall, the document is redolent of the star chamber. The idea that Wilson’s socially concerned blog post contains ‘oppressive content that perpetuates white supremacist ideology’ is as absurd as the idea that Galileo was immoral for espousing heliocentrism. And yet this shoddy, performative document, which history will judge as a peculiar and regrettable token of its era, apparently led to Wilson’s ejection from an organization that improves the lives of underserved black children, and that he himself founded.”
