It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength. - Maya Angelou

Team coffee all the way.
Hello! My name is Cara! How are you today?
Good? I hope you are, haha. But I have a question when you went out today, can you tell me how many non-white people have you seen? Did you see a lot?
Yes? We see so many different races every day, and if not: you all know that we live in a world with not just one race, right?
You know I am right, right? We will just say I am correct, okay? Deal? Deal.
But here we go! Writing diversity isn't a writing style! No. It. Is. Not. Get. It. Right.
I genuinely hate it when people say writing POC characters and their cultural problems is a form of writing. It's not. Do you have white lead characters and their problems as a "form of writing?"
It doesn't make sense, you know? I mean if it makes sense, I just want to know how. I am curious.
I mean - I am over here dying from the hypocrisy - can you see my point? But okay, you still have your head stuck in a hole where common sense doesn't exist.
OKAY ALRIGHT KIDDOS, THAT'S RIGHT, LET'S GET EDUCATED!
Kpop. Oh my lord. OMFG. I like kpop, and in fact I love kpop, but guess what? There is a line. When you're writing about Korean culture or well ANY CULTURE, please do research.
I am just taking kpop and korean culture as an example because of how much I have seen it around wattpad or well in general. K-wave in general.
For example, the word "oppa" isn't some cute endearment, it's a way for a girl/woman to call a boy/man who is older than her respectfully when they're talking. If you have a better explanation please tell me, I'm not Korean, but I do like to study the culture.
