To whoever googled "vote for nk jemison for every"

I briefly had a post up here that was meant to be funny, but on re-reading, it didn't seem respectful, so I deleted it. I do respect Jemisin. She's hard-working and sincere. One of her first targets, William Sanders, said she did excellent work, and I trust his taste.* I simply disagree with her ideology, and I hate the way it's used to rationalize flamewars. Someday, she may say about Critical Race Theory something like what Malcolm X said about the Nation of Islam.

I revised the post and put it on my main blog instead: Is racism rising in fandom?

* There's more about Jemisin and Sanders at The Outing of Zathlazip and the Hounding of William Sanders.
