Here is a dilemma for you. Let's say you slightly know and don't much like two guys. Let's say that both of them have been wildly successful at a young age, and this bugs you, in part because you have a feeling that the avenues to their success would not be open to anyone who was not a white male. Let's say that one of these guys writes a totally savage review of the other one's book in a highly prestigious publication. Are you pleased that one of the guy's books was eviscerated or not pleased that the other guy got tapped to review for the highly prestigious publication?

Or do you conclude from this that you are a bitter, resentful person who should learn to be happy for the success of people you don't like?
