Imagine the caucacity (Caucasian audacity) to not only be ill-prepared for an interview with one of the biggest celebrities/moguls/people in the world but then verbalize that to them.

The ultimate point: had this been a white celebrity and Black writer, this writer would more than likely be stained with a forever mark of “she was ill-prepared”. Yes, editors/pubs blacklist writers AND WE KNOW ABOUT IT!
