It's one of those things where summaries and excerpts really don't do it justice. Read the whole thing.
I'm not sure if one really needs to. What Kelly said was so transparently stupid and horrible that it can be rebutted in fewer than a hundred words, and, really, doesn't need rebuttal in the eyes of a decent person with a reasonably understanding of American history.

It's as if Coates spent his talent and insight explaining why triangles have fewer sides than squares.
