Further Reading: "Minority Rules"

Meline Toumani's New York Times Sunday Magazine article, "Minority Rules", is simply phenomenal.

Toward the conclusion of her article, Toumani admits to her Armenian heritage. Sadly, this will most likely result in her article being discredited and ridiculed by many circles in Turkey. Even more criticism will be aimed at her choice to feature Diyarbakır's mayor, whom Ankara sacked after Toumani first conducted her interview.
