So, Hathcock is a black librarian who criticizes whites for being pleasant and helpful. She also "slammed" some "nice white ladies" who asked that she conduct herself in a civil and professional manner. Do you suppose that request was made because Hathcock is black, or because she was shouting, swearing and altogether out of control while speaking about oppression at the hands of whitey? It's a fair question.
Race fatigue. I wonder who the real sufferers of race fatigue were at the American Librarian Conference; Hathcock or the people who had to put up with her? Ed.
