Ok, so I get asked for advice and my thoughts on a lot of things relating to diversity and representation. This post is informed both by my personal experiences as a US born and raised black woman who has spent a lot of time discussing, writing about, talking about race, feminism and representation. I will not be happy with you at all and woe unto you if you do this and try to use my words as a pass to be wrong. Take my words as you will, understand that I, as a marginalized person have experiences that you privileged folks reading this do not. This is not a time or a place for well, actually in the comments. Nor is it the time or place for countering with your one black friend said Y in response to my Z.
Some examples from my own writing, submitted for your consideration. Not a claim of correctness or The Best Way or anything of the sort. Just my way. But I also just felt like sharing. ETA: And because this post continues to get hits months later, folks might be interested in Part 2 , which was posted at the Magic District, and part 3 , written a few months later.
