Failure to discuss what Morison said that was offensive[edit]

I have looked through the archive and have browsed the varied posts there about Morison and racism and what is and isn't appropriate for a biography, etc., etc.

I have no interest in that fight.

What I am interested in, however, is what Morison wrote that is so offensive. Sure, the section on "Slavery" goes on about how African American scholars objected to certain views and statements from Morison's work, but it never in any way describes what those views or statements were. The reader is left feeling as though he has only seen half of the story and cannot give a critical eye to that section because the criticism is all that is present. This needs to change.
