Why would it be? Talent is talent no matter what color it's coming from.

No, it's not. It would be an interesting read.

Umm...no. What is so weird about someone wanting to get insight about what others went through?

It's definitely unusual (i.e. uncommon and unexpected), but I wouldn't want to call it "weird".
"Weird" implies that there's something wrong with white men liking Maya Angelou, and there isn't.

No. Her work isn't just for black women - or just women.

Not if he's gay.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 6/12/07 - 8:32:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all. She was a good writer.

Dude, you switched the buttons on me!

My answer is no.

I accidentally put yes because the buttons are switched :[

but the answer is no.

No, i dont think it's strange for anyone to like anything. it's their choice.

It's considered "weird" for any white, straight male to like poetry.

I dig guys that are into poetry, though.

What's that anime picture for?

No. I don't really see any unwritten social expectation that a person who enjoys literary works with ethnic and gender themes must be of that ethnicity and gender, and if there is, then it is a barrier to intellectual development.

Of course not, it would be utterly fantastic if every white man grew to love her work.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/21/07 - 7:12:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's really weird for anyone not to like her work, who says "Maya? Nah, she kinda sucks"?
