Topic: finished Queen of A. fan review

A valient effort but the same themes that pervade all white art regarding blacks. Major black character dies, White woman takes over as the "new black" assuming the benifits of the culture, the only other major "negro" character was goldsmiths brother who you tortered without explaining why. Basically all the blacks lost and nobody won. Is this what you meant to say or did you just miss the higher point? If you meant to say this I agree, if not then you really could check with at least more blacks than you did before you publish work on us. It was great, but the potential for a landmark through time was there. I'll pick up the slack for my pale brothers.

Hello, Stephen! Thanks for your analysis of QOA--guilty as charged, where paleness is concerned. I look forward to your own work! Definitely room here for balance, insight, and growth. Let me know how it goes.
