Ok, I didn't comment about the little monkey cartoon in the New York Post because I don't read comics, nor do I read the New York Post, nor do I care how most people interpreted the racist cartoon that the NY Post cartoonist put out there. I pick my battles and if I'm sending a letter or e-mail it's going to be something I actually care about.
What I do, do... is read. I read often. Fiction, non-fiction, magazines, blogs... whatever I can get my hands on and find the time to devour. So imagine my sheer disgust at the photo below. Barnes and Noble, a national bookseller, has the nerve to have this heinous, blatantly racist display. I don't care if a teenager did it to be funny in one city at one store, you need to monitor your displays more closely and mark my words... I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM BARNES AND NOBLE EVER AGAIN (and I won't let the interns from my company purchase anything company related from there either).
If I was an author, I'd pull my books out of Barnes and Noble stores. I work too hard for my money to buy so much as a peppermint candy from a blatantly racist organization.
