Re blog inquiry: @sciam is a publication for discovering science. The post was not appropriate for this area & was therefore removed. — Mariette DiChristina (@mdichristina) October 12, 2013 This is not a post about discovering science.
I’ve seen a number of tweets and blog comments over the last few days wondering – some nicely, some not so nicely – why so many of us reacted more strongly to Scientific American’s response to Dr.
This post is many months in coming, yet I know I will not be able to give it the kind of attention I would like. I am leaving Scientific American. There is no mystery to the reasons.
I’m working against too many deadlines as usual and am unable to write a long blog post. But I was pretty troubled by this piece in The Nation the other day… troubled because the hard work and brilliant insights of black women I respected were being turned into something far more sinister.
