I wanted to post a response to the Tweetstorm happening surrounding #TheContinent (a YA book with some serious “White Savior Narrative” stuff going on, click that link for a summary) and Jenny Trout’s response (in which she calls out her own use of racist tropes in some of her older books).
But I also want to watch election returns, so I’m probably going to go do that.
I’ll be back tomorrow with some thoughts about how I know #WeNeedDiverseBooks but also: I am a white lady.
Hopefully having survived watching the election returns (rather than posting as some sort of post-election zombie).
