Why Does The Paleface Dominate Festival Of Books?

There were very few people of color. I wasn’t surprised, because anybody that is even a little in touch with reality knows that people of color are badly under-represented in every field, especially literature…but it just sucks to see it ya know? Everywhere I turned I saw white families with their Whole Foods tote bags full of books, sipping their lemonade and introducing their children to the newest children’s book characters. I mean don’t get me wrong, white people ain’t all that bad, but i know Black and Brown people can read and write too, and we sure as hell love lemonade! Why weren’t we present there in the numbers that really represent the demographics of the city?
