Comment on TFOB Part I – Writing Heroes of Diversity by Jonathan S. Pembroke
Those are fair points, Beth. I understand it is not just about the superficial trappings of diversity (skin color, etc.). At the same time, I was also once accused of (If you’ll pardon the expression) of whitewashing racial issues in a story because the characters of darker skin were not treated the same as they are in our world.
So I don’t think there are ever any easy answers on this subject.
