One marvelously clever thing that was suggested at the "Why is SF so White?" panel, as a means of encouraging more non-white writers into the industry, was a mentoring program. (Liz Scheier, from the audience, also mentioned that she doesn't see nearly enough submissions with non-white protagonists or main characters, and would love to see more.)

The idea being that would-be writers of color could be paired with volunteer authors who would help mentor them.

I am not the person to administrate this. I know this about myself. But I thought it was a good enough idea to be worth sailing out into the zeitgeist.

You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't. Personally, I'd rather be damned for being a decent human being than for being a bigot.

See you in Hell.
Right.

Stepping out of the conversation, but yes, I fully intend to be buried in summer clothes.
All my friends will be there.
You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't.

Yeah. Pretty much :)

I definitely agree that change would be nic. I'm just not entirely sure how I feel about this particular proposal as one potentially on the receiving end.

I think you are being a decent human being :D
