* This blog post isn't by a blogger of color but the subject matter is relevant. The question "Is my character 'black enough'?" is very significant in this time where there's a new, steady flux of white written black stories. The question itself conjures the erroneous notion of a monolithic black experience.
* Author Nnedi Okorafor defends her right to write about "female genital cutting" without demonizing the practice in her newest speculative fiction novel Who Fears Death.

* Natalie Wilson of the Professor, What If... blog has not self-identified as being a person of color, but hell, I'm giving her an honorary pass if she's not. Check her about page and you'll know why. Her provocative posts like the one discussing the gender backlash and sexism surrounding female fans of Twilight are always enlightening. Do I care about that series, not so much, but I do care about how the backlash can be applied to any form of media perceived as "geared towards women."
