First, the sensitivity revisions, the reruns and remakes with each race and culture, the dumbing down of anything and everything makes me nervous for the future. Those who do not learn from nor understand history are doomed to repeat it, and we are making sure no one knows the difference between the past and the present.

Lastly, the piece about the author not being published based on his immutable characteristics, rather than his talent and ability to understand people in a respectful way, going so far as to listen to their lived experiences, not only deprives us of good stories and good characters, it does a disservice to those people he spoke with who may not be writers but would have been represented. We are segregating at a rapid pace, and I think this will set us back years and decades.
