It’s Not Rocket Science. It’s Common Sense.

If a person of color has a problem with your story then you should listen. If a white person has a problem with your story then you should listen. If anyone has a problem with your story then you should listen.

That doesn’t mean you have to write what only makes them happy. It means you should listen because they really do have better things to do than revisit their pain. That’s all.

But if you do listen, don’t pretend to agree to the person’s face and then turn around and snark to everyone else you never agreed with her critique in the first place.

Come on. It’s not rocket science. Seriously. It’s not.
