Can be found here. It's a monster of a chapter-- in many ways the ribcage of the book that the rest of the meat gets hung on-- and so Matt has a series of observations, each one of which could be its own blog post (any of you bloggers out there looking for inspiration for your latest post, just take something here and react to it!). Anyway, here's one of his observations which I chose because of its relevance to other conversations we've been having:
Second, the chapter becomes absolutely weirdly flummoxed and apologetic whenever it discovers evidence that non-white writers are getting produced and even receiving decent commissions. I found it mystifying. The lady doth protest too much. It could be that dedicated efforts towards making stages more diverse are having a positive effect. That's good, right? What am I missing?
RTWT here. And if you read something that strikes your fancy, comment, or e-mail, or write your own blog post (again, if you write a blog post responding to any of this, leave a message in the comments and we'll post a link).
