So you think a bunch of old White guys like me would know better than Blacks or Asians exactly what Blacks or Asians might consider to be quality art.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and White guys like me cannot have had the kind of experience nonwhites have had, much less see things they way they do. Yet most movers and shakers are White like me, and so cannot possibly know as well as Blacks and Asians what would best sell to tens of millions of Black and Asian consumers.

Is this really so hard to understand?
