Ta-Nehesi Coates writes:

Kenyatta is about the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. Exceedingly kind and generous. She’s the sort of person who, literally, volunteers on behalf of battered women.

Huh. In my imagined world, women who volunteer on behalf of battered women are tough. They are the women who will face down your abuser and his brother while you pack. They are the women who encourage you to be angry.

It is not the supporting point I would pick for “sweet”.
