Open Thread At Noon

By Ta-Nehisi Coates

The title is what it says. Please folks, if you have something you're dying to say, save it for here. We all think a Spiderman/Snow White crossover would be fascinating. But injecting it into a thread about race and gender, is like walking into a conversation, talking over everyone, and demanding they talk about what you want to talk about. Saying, "this is totally off-topic" doesn't make it better.

Sorry for the call-out. This has been happening a lot over the last week. From here on out, I'm going to just delete. I know it's only a virtual dinner-party. But I'm still a prick when it comes to manners. Even on the net.
