You will undoubtedly be shocked to hear that, in this issue, we still have not deigned to publish a white fucking male! ;) This is of course, as always, organic and merited.

I hope you're not really this dumb, OP. Poetry Magazine has been around since 1912, and has published untold thousands of white males. This latest issue happens to be a themed one on global anglophone Indian poems. If you look at basically any other fucking issue, you'll see plenty of comforting white-sounding surnames and first names implying penis possession. And if you look through their past archives, you'll see William Butler Yeats, William Carlos Williams, Joyce Kilmer, Carl Sandburg, Charlotte Wilder, Robert Creeley, Wallace Stevens, Basil Bunting, Yone Noguchi, Carl Rakosi, Dorothy Richardson, Peter Viereck, Louis Zukofsky, Charles Reznikoff, E. E. Cummings, Frank O'Hara, Allen Ginsberg, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, and Tennessee Williams, Max Michelson, etc.

The left really started pushing hard against whites around 2015.

In 2018 they published 3 poems from white males, 1 from a jew, well Torrin A. Greathouse seems to be a transexual white female (male).

What happened in 1983 is not really relevant in most ways and it's rather telling if they used to publish mainly white poets and then suddenly stopped.

Sounds like they're funded by some female philanthropist not from the government so they can publish whoever the fuck they please

If you look at the table of contents from just the previous month's issue, you can see plenty of (I presume) white male names.

A comment like that makes me want to really dislike it, but I actually think this one's somewhat interesting. I'm tired of this style, but the imagery is pretty good and all the pieces seem fitting, even if despondent.

is completely false. OP is right, white males are very, very rarely published by poetry, and when they are, which is again, rarely, they're almost always veterans of the game with the clout to have been grandfathered in despite the anti white male sentiment.
I'm acquainted with some of the slush readers at poetry, I move in the Chicago literary scene. Trust me, OP is right.

Their past history is hardly relevant you total brainlet, the point is very clearly that they’ve begun discriminating against white males in recent years, themed issue aside. This
>If you look at basically any other fucking issue, you'll see plenty of comforting white-sounding surnames and first names implying penis possession.
is totally false, it’s 50/50 in an issue at best, more often 20/50, which is not organic at all. White people are still the majority in the West, are still the best educated, and are still the same race that has been dominating the canon since its inception by white hands. But suddenly we’re minorities on the literary scene. Checks out.

would it be racism if the opposite were true?
would you care if it was?
lets say that they intentionally chose all white poets for an issue. would you say it was racist?
my money is that you wouldn't care and wouldn't say anything and would continue not to read anything from Poetry Foundation

complete idiot. the socratic method doesn’t work in disabled hands.
>would it be racism if the opposite were true?
that would be an accurate representation of the demographics you total retard, which is the whole point
