Re: RARA-AVIS: Racism

Date: 13 Nov 2005

Hi, Victoria, I didn't mean to pass a moral judgment, and I realize how easy it is to feel superior. You make many good points. I just find that the attitudes irritate me, and I'd rather read the writers who seem more aware of their use of racial comments. I know Maltese Falcon is a great book for many reasons.

I see now that I missed the problem with the houseboy being called a boy, when he must have been a man, so my sensitivity about the boy/girl thing is obviously not up to par! Vicki
