A new blog, Law Firm Diversity, describes its purpose as promoting a rational discussion about the so-called business case for law firm diversity: that “the creativity and problem-solving ability of a group is a function of diversity.”

The blog is written by Mister Thorne, a freelance writer and editor in San Francisco. Although not a lawyer, he is married to one. He is “one half of an interracial couple,” he says. “I’m Anglo, and my wife is Afro, which means I have experiences that most Anglos don’t.”

And it is OK to call him Mister — that is his actual first name.
