Racism, etc.

One "could" say "Hemingway scholars acknowledge is 'racism, misogyny, anti-Semitism, and other sorts of intolerance in much of Hemingway's writing.'" and source it to a Boston University article, BU scholars grace Hemingway centennial, but that would be pretty imbalanced in an article this short. And his run-of-the-mill 1920s attitudes were not directed against Indians.

And I'm not very sympathetic to editors that misspell Hemingway's name and cite what I am virtually certain is a phony reference (to a real journal). Dpbsmith 08:52, 24 February 2007 (EST)

I don't see how stating well-documented facts (as per my perfectly good reference) is biased. Understanding authors' attitudes is integral to understanding their work. If you're unsatisfied with the proportion of the article devoted to this aspect of Hemingway, I suggest you expand the rest of the article instead of randomly deleting salient details. Thanks. (And I am a horrible speller in general, especially at 3:12 in the morning. Sue me.) Daveb433 10:29, 24 February 2007 (EST)
