If you don't want anybody to know you're a racist, maybe you shouldn't say racist things.

Toby essentially says everything that I've been thinking about the current fuss over yet another bile-o-gram from the editor of Helix, this one sent in a "professional" capacityWhen you have behaved in a contemptible fashion, it's beyond contemptible and into pathetic to claim that nobody should have called you on it. 

Also, just as a point of order? The question of the right to reprint the contents of letters, especially for purposes of comment or criticism, is an open one. The moral of the story? Don't say it if you don't want it heard.

Really, this kind of nonsense makes me embarrassed for my genre. Which is why I feel the need to comment on this issue, rather than shunning it, the way I tend to shun everything related to Mr. Sanders.

Because I feel it's important to make it plain that not everybody in the SFF community is willing to suffer hearing this kind of blatant racism in silence.
