Another mean review

Jonathan Yardley has a column about authors that use the racist past of their ancestors to show their own innate goodness. It's a rather nice piece of snark, as shown here: Though all due modesty and claims of imperfection are expressed, the reader is expected to stand and cheer as, at book's end, the author's heroic achievement is revealed in full.
