Right on, Allison. The standards you describe are also the standards of business and personal relationships. Talk to the person you have a problem with FIRST then take it from there. There's always more to the story. You're doing important work. It's vitally important, as you say, to read and know about different perspectives. When the writing and editing of people of color is lifted up and amplified, all of us benefit. Don't be discouraged by the haters. They always attack ideas whose time has come. .
