#Red white and royal blue
Text
i really love guessing which fandom a particular fanart belongs to, especially when they don't have certain character defining factors. it's like, okay blonde haired bloke with brown haired lad, alex and henry or andrew and pre-ravens neil? dude with long black hair and a bloke with brown curls, sirius and remus or baz and simon?
i just really love that guessing game

Alex 100% steals henrys jumpers and secretly loves how he can do the sleeve paw things since Henry’s jumpers are big on him and Henry dies when he sees it

RWARB: NOT ALL BROWN PEOPLE ARE INDIAN.
GAH alright i have a rant
I just started Red, White, and Royal Blue because it's been super hyped and I'm in the mood for some fluff. And then, I found this sentence that, as a POC, irks me to no ends, and is borderline racist, and while it doesn't ruin the entire book for me, because it does seem like a trivial detail, it is something that needs to be addressed.
Tumblr media
My issue with this part is the "tall thirty-something Indian man" phrase, and here's why.
Simply put, NOT ALL BROWN PEOPLE ARE INDIAN.
South Asia is a massive area of the world, and has more countries than just India. Let's see, we've got Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Nepal, the Maldives and Sri Lanka (and there are probably a few that I've left out)
To assume that every single person with brown skin is Indian is extremely rude and racist, because you are assigning someone to an identity without considering their true heritage and culture. If the character (in this case, it's Alex) had interacted with the man before, and had tangible confirmation of his race/ethnicity, then, it would be okay to label him as an "Indian man," but just ignorantly seeing a person with brown skin and saying "Oh, well, then they're definitely Indian" is racist. Don't dismiss someone's ethnic identity off of an assumption, because a lot of people place a lot of value in their culture (ex. religion, language, food, values, etc.)
And yes, I can make this statement with 100% certainty, because this has happened to me before. And as a brown person who is not Indian, it's really frustrating for have someone assume my identity off the color of my skin, and yes, I do get offended.
Some people might say that this is something really small to get upset over, or that I'm trying to cancel the author, and I'm not. I need readers, writers, and just people in general to be aware of their thought processes and make an active effort to correct their ignorance.
That's all, folks.
I'd really appreciate if y'all could reblog this, because I don't think this is something that is addressed nearly often enough.

Writer Henry, Photographer Alex. Enemies to lovers.
Chapter eleven
“I have two meetings this afternoon,” Henry said quietly.
Alex looked up at him abruptly.
They were curled up together on Henry’s couch. It was where they’d found themselves a lot during the past week. Between plenty of kissing as well as a very enthusiastic continuation of their exploration of each other’s bodies, they hadn’t spent much time without touching each other in some capacity. Currently, Alex was lying down and resting his head on Henry’s thigh, enjoying the feeling of Henry’s fingertips trailing down his bare chest and possibly thinking about resuming a sitting position so that he could steal another kiss or two. Or three.
Henry’s unusually solemn expression made Alex sit up for an entirely different reason.
“Okay,” he said softly, reaching for Henry’s hand. “You look… concerned?”
Henry grimaced. “Well. Let’s just say that I’m not ecstatic.” For some reason, he took a deep breath. “I’ve put off seeing my editor for quite a while.”
“Really?” Alex asked. He felt somewhat confused. “Why would you do that?”
“It’s, you know. It’s the book.” Henry slowly turned Alex’s hand over in his, his eyes downcast. “I sent in the draft of The Waterloo Letters a while ago.”
“Okay.” Alex frowned. “Did your editor not like it? Is that even possible? It’s so good.”
Henry’s lips almost tugged into a smile. Almost.
“I have no idea if Windsor Publishing likes it or not,” he said evenly. “Because I haven’t opened any emails from them since I submitted it.”
Alex stared at him.

Henry: some people are like slinkies
Alex: explain...?
Henry: relatively useless, but they still make you smile when you push them down the stairs
Alex: ...you’re going to push Phillip down the stairs, aren’t you?
Henry: you can’t stop me
Alex: wasn’t planning on it, but FaceTime me so I can record it.

Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuinston
My most recent read is Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuinston and oh my god is it one of my favourite books ever. It will probably be the only contemporary romance I will ever read, but it was a good book. I finished this book on Tuesday and now it is Thursday

Sometimes I wish my parents where Democrats because then I could hate all Republicans like other people in the lgbt+ community. When I came out to my mom she told me she really didn’t care as long as I was happy and that she doesn’t believe anyone should have to come out but if that’s what made me feel better it’s okay. She said “people are who they are. Labels don’t make any difference.” I never had to come out to my dad in a formal way but he knows I’m bi. He’s a republican politician and he insists I give him a hug every time I leave the house he has never purposefully misgendered anyone of my friends or made anyone feel uncomfortable in our home. He has supported me and when our beliefs sometime don’t line we have a debate but then we move on with a better understanding of each other’s side. Yes there are bigoted republicans but there are also bigoted democrats. The point is there are bad people on both sides of these arguments and I’m sick of having to feel ashamed of my family and like have to choose between my sexuality and them. My family will welcome my future girlfriend into my life with open arms but will they be willing to date someone who has an R on their voter ID card. And if they’re the ones who make me choose then who’s the real bigot.

Thinking of buying a bunch of gay books from Amazon so my grandma won't read them cuz she likes my reading taste way too much (I literally read the song of achilles, the gentleman's guide and Six of Crows and she loved them???????)
Books I'm planning to buy:
These witches don't burn
One last stop
She drives me crazy
Cinderella is dead
Red white and royal blue
I'm not going to buy too much physical copies of books cuz it's more expensive but I'm trying to build my library (and I would prefer to fill it with da gay™)
Please recommend me good queer books if you know any (I mainly like ya fantasy but I'm flexible)
