The topic is actually pretty interesting, but the writing... Oh my.

"...anyone else attended a black event, asked for whiskey and received a confused face from the bartender?"

"Around the same time blacks discovered cognac..."

How did this even get okayed for publication?? I just can't even with this shit. And most of the comments are about whether the commenter likes cognac or whisky or whatever drink, with only a couple of comments pointing out the problematic language the writer used. Uuuugggghhhhh.
