"It's time for science fiction to face up to discrimination" again.

About once a year or so, someone decides its time to write an article about the lack of prominent writers of color in mainstream science fiction, fantasy, horror and other genres. This season, it's the Guardian that's come across this topic as if it's the very first time someone's noticed.

The breakout quote for this article undoubtedly goes to Saladin Ahmed for saying "Class diversity also needs to be part of #DiversityinSFF. I want fewer kings and starship captains, more coach drivers and space waitresses."

In the meantime, folks, keep writing, keep changing worlds.
