Korrekte links

Her er links til min Bogholderi-note i fredagens WA Bøger om anmeldelsen af en Young Adut-roman, American Heart, i Kirkus Review, der blev korrigeret, fordi en bog med hvid synsvinkel på brun person altid er problematisk og derfor aldrig kan være fuldt rosværdig.

Kommentar fra New Yorker om sagen

Artikel fra vulture. com (før sagen om American Heart-anmeldelsen) om "The Toxic Drama on YA Twitter. Young-adult books are being targeted in intense social-media callouts, draggings, and pile-ons — sometimes before anybody’s even read them" med udgangspunkt i kontroversen om YA-fantasy-romanen The Black Witch

Kæmpe blog-angrebThe Black Witch 


Citat fra Vulture-artiklen, ved Kat Rosenfeld:
"Still, the interpretation of Forest’s novel as a 600-page paean to anti-miscegenation seems rare among those who’ve actually read it. On Amazon, where the book is currently rated 4.3 stars out of 5, reviews generally agree that the book is firmly anti-prejudice, and that Elloren’s long slog in the direction of enlightenment is a realistic depiction of the process by which an indoctrinated person begins to expand her worldview. (There, the most common criticism is that the book’s message of tolerance is heavy-handed.) However, just reading a so-called problematic book in order to judge its offensiveness for oneself is considered by many to be beyond the pale.
Author Tristina Wright was one of several who condemned would-be readers of called-out books, while young readers followed suit.
“Imagine being so privileged you care about your own entertainment more than the hurt of marginalized people,” one tweeted, while another declared, “Reading a book specifically because it’s been called out for racism doesn’t make you a champion of independent thought. It makes you racist.”
Mimi, the teen blogger who had once been so excited about The Black Witch, was among those who urged others to avoid the book, writing on her website and Twitter about the emotional pain it had caused her. She still hasn’t read it, and doesn’t plan to; she feels that Sinyard’s review tells her all she needs to know. “I trusted her take on it. She showed pictures from the book, and certain passages in the book, so it’s not like she was making it up,” Mimi says."
