CORRECTION on New York Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan’s piece addressing a racist critique of TV producer Shonda Rhimes.
The original article, published in the paper Sept. 18th and written by the decidedly white Alessandra Stanley, opened with these words: "When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography, it should be called ‘How to Get Away With Being An Angry Black Woman.’"
Sullivan called Stanley’s piece “condescending” and “astonishingly tone-deaf and out of touch.” And precisely zero people familiar with Stanley’s error-prone work are surprised.
