...[T]here was a report on Clutchfans that was reviewing the Rocket's interest in coaches and listed 10 coaches that the Rox really like and/or will interview. And someone posted "is it me, or are the Rockets only interested in black coaches?"
So I listed all the coaches and categorized them according to their skin color. And here's what I wrote after listing them all out:
"Let's see...5 white guys and 5 black guys replacing a white guy that replaced a white guy that replaced a white guy. Yeah, I think you're right. They're only looking for a black coach.
Racist much? :D "
This struck me since I had recently discussed with my husband the occasionally distorted view regarding women and POC's as majority presences in anthologies where they factually are not. Sometimes people only seem to see what they want to see.
Which leads into an interesting article (snurched from one of Jay Lake's recent Link Salads) regarding many things, including how we tend to place high importance on evidence that supports what we want to believe and disregard any other evidence, despite the logic or science behind it.
