William A. Jacobson notices something:
The New York Times today ran a demeaning Op-Ed about Tim Scott, the Republican Congressman from South Carolina who was just appointed to the seat being vacated by Jim DeMint.
The Op-Ed was written by U. Penn. Political Science Professor Adolf L. Reed Jr., The Puzzle of Black Republicans, and accused Republicans of engaging in tokenism by appointing Scott:
