One day, in an ideal world, there will be no such thing as diverse books, movies, giveaways etc. Because one day, in the distant future, media will no longer be a predominantly white space. One day, having a black protagonist in a book won’t be shouted down as “political” by red-faced zealots who have barely read a book in their lives.
My personal rule as a white, female author is to have a diverse cast in my books while keeping my protagonists white. Because what do I know about racial prejudice and the hurdles they create in society? Zilch. Even the time someone yelled at me to “go home and learn English” at my retail job because they thought I was Polish. Although, I’m not against popping back to Worcester to do a masters degree in English Lit. Hell, maybe I’ll do it one day.
