Addressing Troubling Tropes Regarding Asian and Asian-Americans in YA (and Excuses For Them That Need to Stop)
*While the main focus will be on the YA genre in this post, these tropes do apply to other literature genres as well*
This is a truly thorough and excellent run down of why writing Asian characters can be troubling. Hey, I’m Asian American and I’ve still made my own set of blunders! And I totally agree that we can be fans of things that are problematic. But the beautiful thing is we learn and we become more aware and we keep writing.
