OMG!!!!!! I'm still in shock, utter and complete SHOCK, that i was chosen to be the 2016 RWA Librarian of the year. *falls out*
I get the "your collection should look like your community" idea. I do. But, let me just put this out there: books by POC are for EVERYONE
I don't think ppl understand just how deeply offensive I don't think of you/I didn't think of them as black is. Maybe you can't understand
You can have PoC authors on panels that have NOTHING TO DO WITH diversity. it's okay. You can have them on panels about....contemp romance
If the only black people you can think to write are crack whores maybe go back to 1991 and learn some things.
But, "diverse books" are for EVERYONE. If anything, they're ESPECIALLY for people who can't "relate" to people different than themselves.
"Books teach us the empathy that leads to engagement." Yes. Exactly. Which is why we ALLLLLLLLLLL need to read books by diverse authors.
Goes right along with "you're so articulate." "You're not like other black people" "you're pretty for a black girl"
