Reporter Accuses Dowd of – What Else?- Blind Date Profiling

helena-large.jpg Former Politico scribe Helena Andrews is calling the date that NYT columnist Maureen Dowd set her up on with Obama aide Reggie Love “racial profiling.” Andrews writes about it in the latest issue of Marie Claire.

How dare Dowd assume she wants to date a black man?

A Web site called The Nytpicker has the scoop.

An excerpt
“I’ve got a guy for you,” Dowd told Andrews. “He’s so hot, it’s perfect.” A few days later, Dowd’s assistant called to confirm the connection.

Now, in a brief recollection published in the latest issue of Marie Claire, Andrews has placed the event in the context of “racial profiling” by white people like Dowd, who assumed she wanted to date only black men. She even notes that her own mother tried to fix her up with a black man she met at Ikea. The nerve of her!”

Please note the black dog in the picture. Pure coincidence.
