I’ll be honest: perhaps it’s because I’m a “white feminist,” or perhaps it’s because I’m a professor of English, but I found the “open letter” largely incomprehensible. I’m sure it’s just me, but it read as dismissive and divisive. My apologies.

I can't remember if the "how to derail discussions of racism (or whatever else)" included "Quoi? Vas? I do not understand these words which you are speaking, how terribly amusing, you think you're making -sense.- Pat, pat," but it's always been a particular favorite of mine, I must say. Not at all -dismissive,- hevvings no.
Hey, professor ladywhosis, speaking as a white chick and an English speaker as well as a "multidegreed asswipe," tm uhm, uhhh, oh that's right, Amanda Marcotte, I had no trouble understanding it at all. Perhaps the problem is, indeed, with you. Did you want the Cliff Notes, or are you just miffed because a book with pictures in it is being taken off the market?
