Les Payne is right. It's the language, not the substance. It's not that the story reported by the News is untrue or reported inaccurately. It's an important phenomenon, and they were right to report it.
But in the longest view, the story is about African-Americans following the path of the Irish, Italians, Serbo-Croatians and everybody the hell else to the American dream. My own headline would be "What else did anybody expect?"
