Soo… we need to have a chat sister.
The new global shelf…
When I saw it I thought “ooo nice, we get to read about different cultures and see diversity!”
Only two of the stories on the shelf take place in another country/culture (japan and Mexico) the rest are fantasy or they’re about white people traveling around.
It infuriated me!
As a writer who’s actually writing a story that takes places somewhere else (South Korea) I’m furious.
Episode needs to stop baseing their shelves off stories with tons of reads.
I’m tired of seeing white characters taking romantic trips to Paris or a white couple dilly dallying in fairy tale land.
How is a fantasy story global? It doesn’t exist; it’s fiction.
Sorry, I had to rant.
