Since I’ve already written on Writing the Other (which, if there’s been any evolution in my thoughts it’s been the realization that everyone is other to me, including other People of Color)–and for that matter, my thoughts haven’t changed much since I wrote on Sexism in the Genre–I’ve decided to forego this latest round of hand-wringing over cultural appropriation.* Two years from now during the next go around, I’ll try to add something new to the discussion.
Instead, I’ll leave you with today Bingo (joining the “Fantasy and Science Fiction Bingo” and “Stupid White Folks Bingo”): Cultural Appropriation Bingo!
