Kameron Austin Collins on representation in New York Times Crosswords

A couple weeks ago, the Times published a week of puzzles by Black constructors, as a celebration of Black History Month. Each one was sprinkled with figures and events from Black history, and I found each puzzle to be a joyful construction. As he does every day, Jeff Chen reviewed the puzzle on his blog on Xword Info. Collins responded with a long explanation of what he found troubling about the review. It's worth a read. (Spoiler warning for his puzzle, of course.)
