I’m currently trying to organize my lettering posters into neatly labeled folders and when I get to ‘Nerdfighteria’, let’s just say I am a little bit surprised/amused that it has already been this many.
So I made this thing and I’m pretty proud of it, haha.
Judge a Book By Its Cover
Stopped in Barnes & Noble today and thought I’d see if there were any YA titles worth checking out. How depressing to note the unsubtle message being sent by the cover images of the books on display:
- 95 white girls
- 30 white boys
- 15 figures (male and female) in shadow
- 1 racially ambiguous light brown girl
- 1 drawing of an Asian boy (next to a drawing of a white girl)
- 1 half of a black boy’s face (next to 1 half of a white girl’s face)
They really ought to rename the section “White Teen Fiction.”
It’s a good day!
And once again I’m still split down the line of Ravenclaw and Slytherin
