Fandango is reporting that the steamy Valentine’s Day weekend opener Fifty Shades Of Grey has so far been the fastest selling advance ticket R-rated title in the company’s 15-year history.

Junot describes what many of us writers of color have experienced in writing classes and workshops for years.
