What to make of this …

 A response to 'On Pandering' - LA Times. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Unless it’s to support someone I know or explicitly recommended, I no longer read white men. It’s not to make a political statement so much as I’m tired of seeing the world through their eyes. If you asked me to name my literary influences, it would probably take an hour before a white man appeared.
Sportswriter Jimmy Cannon famously wrote of Joe Louis that "he was a credit to his race — the human race." Maybe we should pay a little attention to that human race. After all, it's the only one we all belong to.
