Beware of (s)he who discounts race. That guy should have known that, after blacks invented rock, record companies used white singers to market the songs. Hence the abomination that is Pat Boone singing Little Richard. Pretending that we've come so far that it's no big deal is just that: pretending.

The only black rocker I can think of is Lenny Kravitz. Maybe that guy couldn't think of any, and felt stupid. I think he also felt threatened because you're female and you dared to speak to him.

Hello,

I just stumbled onto your blog and wanted to chime in on this post because I've also experienced similar things. I'm also trying to break into the writing thing and so I understand how nervewracking it can be when you meet someone that you perhaps build up a bit in your head. That guy's behavior was inexcusable, however. Please don't let that experience deter you from future opportunities Not everyone is an ass...

Best of luck!

That guy was just being a jerk, and his manners suck. Number one rule of networking, especially when you're speaking to someone who's interested in what you do -- NEVER EVER make someone feel inferior or stupid. Jeez.

I'll bet he has a short one.

It sounds like this oh-so-important, famous magazine guy was an asshole. He was trying to make you feel bad. What you do and think is important. Him? Not so much.
