Whitney Terrell Kansas City Confidential

Kansas City's most celebrated author finally offers a confessional crafted for the NPR crowd. Still, it's much more interesting about his recent critically acclaimed but commercially ignored novel where some lady solider single-handedly wins the war in Iraq. Checkit:

A Writer's Personal Story About His Divided Kansas City Is One Tale In 'Two Americas'

The new book " Tales of Two Americas: Stories of Inequality in a Divided Nation" includes contributions from 36 "major contemporary writers" including Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Russo and Roxane Gay. In that distinguished company is Kansas City novelist Whitney Terrell, who spoke with KCUR about working with the collection's distinguished editor, John Freeman, and how he ended up writing what might be considered his first personal essay.

Why does he think he has to be involved in this kids life just because he's black? "I didn’t really know how to interact with him or what kind of role I could have in his life." Stupid progressive story

The burden of civilization rests on the backs of (mostly White) men. Yet, "celebrated authors" continue to gleefully write rubbish denigrating, slandering, and insulting this very group, while magically bestowing superhuman courage and strength to women and non-whites. This behavior has gone from fashionable, to a sick and predictable formula to get one's work published.It is Marxist and for decades now, been destructive to our society."Men are bad - especially White men--and everyone else is just wonderful". More of the same and Much Ado.
