White All Around?

February 05, 1989

Watching stage critic Dan Sullivan and Mark Taper Forum executive Gordon Davison duke it out in The Times is like watching two white guys go one on one in basketball because they own the court (Sullivan's Jan. 8 "And a Humbug in a Pear Tree" and Davison's Jan. 22 letter).

Come on, Calendar, aren't there any non-white reviewers on your staff? Does Kevin Thomas have to review every Japanese film?

Come on, Gordon, are the only blacks on your staff the janitor and receptionist? Why the white-only practice regarding directors, i.e. "Green Card," "The Wash" and now "Sansei"? And "Dutch Landscape," which takes place in South Africa but deals with a white family from Malibu yet?

Come on, guys, stop being so self-righteous. You're a joke to all Third World Americans.
