Dubois "I can only hope that ghosts are real, (and) W.E.B. DuBois haunts her down for the rest of her existence until she (re-)reads The Souls of Black Folk." 

                                                             -- Maria at Her Jazz, reacting to Jessica Pressler's piece in Sunday's New York Times about black fans of indie music.

UPDATE: The Huffington Post piles on and draws blood:
