Do they honestly believe there are only a handful of books written by marginalized writers that are remotely worthy of publishing? Do they not realize marginalized writers not only have to compete against everyone else, but also have to fight to be seen among other marginalized writers?

I have a bone to pick about the way this person behaved. Marginalized people are often expected to defend their experiential learning and perceptions (people of various faiths, LGBTQIA, PW Disabilities, POC etc).

They Say: He hasn't done this or that, and he probably won't Jim Jefferies Says: Give him a chance. Hitler didn't kill the Jews on the first day. He worked up to it. Piers Morgan: You see. That is the exact, ridiculous, hysterical, over the top nonsense that is making people frightened.
