    Abstract:
    Professor Ewell’s argument concerning a white racial frame in American music theory is fundamentally flawed because Ewell’s argument is based on the notion that Schenker’s worldview was based on biological racism, not culture, and Ewell is incorrect that Schenker’s worldview was based on biological race. In addition, Ewell hid this fact by incompletely presenting a quotation that is central to his argument (he omitted three sentences), as well as by using numerous quotes out-of-context.
