Romance Novels Written by African American Authors I've Read That I Would Have Voted For if #RITASSOWHITE Didn't Exist and The Playing Field Was Level
There are a few things I can honestly say I'm passionate about. Books and black voices are two of those things, I am passionate about.
I knew nothing about the RITAS. I'm still in the dark about some specific details. However, I couldn't help but notice the list being specifically and almost wholly "white." This doesn't surprise me. I've been watching authors of color take a back seat in literature for quite some time now. The shock more so comes from the ignorant comments being made that belittle and demean works by authors of color as if they are not worthy for a nomination, let alone to win. That's disgusting and people need to and can
than that. do better
Without getting myself all worked up, here are a bunch of romance novels written by authors of color (mostly black) that I've read that I would have definitely nominated and voted for.
Does not include thugs, drug deals, the mob, or ebonics. *Please read this in the most sarcastic voice you can muster*
These novels are in no particular order but
were released last year.
