I absolutely understand and applaud the questioning and think that is an important part of the message. But I also think she was writing to a group who would not (probably) have read the same book by a POC. I heard similar complaints about Razorblade Tears but I think it’s ok to write for the audience you have. Now as we learn more, part of that education is to seek out the POC books that help us continue to understand. It’s a jumping off point.
