I've done my fair share of ranting—here and here as examples—around the subject of jazz and race and how it is discussed.
Part of my issue with most commentaries is that they far too simplistic in their thinking. Racial politics is complex. It isn't something you can just say "my truth is the truth". But this is rarely reflected in any of the writing I have seen. So it's really refreshing to read this from journalist Nate Chinen. Have a look.
