I remember seeing this in the news when it 1st happened. I don't really read romance books anymore, BUT it is certainly reflective of many of the greater struggles that all sorts of different groups are going through today to achieve greater equity. Racism in fiction is a subconscious bias generator that can & does damage society over time. it is something we should all be pleased to have called out and hopefully the RWA are able to improve themselves structurally to make changes.
The wonderful thing about not planning
Is that failure comes as a complete surprise
And is not preceded by a period of worry or depression
