Originally when you mentioned this article I thought she was going to address Black History Month as a whole but after reading the article I see it is more about writer invitations during the month. However if black writers choose to deny invitations during that month on the principle that they do not wish to be "token" writers that month, I suppose they should boycott anything Black History Month should they not? Seems the problem is not that they are being asked in February, meaning that they don't want to be asked that month, just that they wished they had that many appearances year round.
