Minority and female literature: General Social Survey participants (N = 2,628) were asked how they felt about this statement: "It is a shame when traditional American literature is ignored while other works are promoted because they are by women or by members of minority groups." Here are the percentages who agreed (strongly or somewhat):
Percent who agree
White males 63.6
White females 64.6
Black males 52.3
Black females 48.4
The only group short of a majority is black females, so if traditional literature is so popular, why don't we study it?
