Is My Character “Black Enough”? Advice on Writing Cross-Culturally

Tu Books Publisher and Editorial Director Stacy Whitman shares advice on writing cross-culturally for an author who wonders, “Is my character black enough?”

Community Village‘s insight:
Another decision to make: Should the character code switch?
I suppose some people speak the same way in all situations, but I speak differently when I’m at work verses when I’m at home or around friends.
Also, code switching can be done by any character – regardless of their ethnic background.

Multiracial Americans and Social Class: The Influence of Social Class on Racial Identity: Kathleen Odell Korgen

“As the racial hierarchy shifts and inequality between Americans widens, it is important to understand the impact of social class on the rapidly growing multiracial population. Multiracial Americans and Social Class is the first book on multiracial Americans to do so and fills a noticeable void in a growing market.
In this book, noted scholars examine the impact of social class on the racial identity of multiracial Americans, in highly readable essays, from a range of sociological perspectives. In doing so, they answer the following questions: Who is multiracial? How does class influence racial identity? How does social class status vary among multiracial populations? Do you need to be middle class in order to be an “honorary white”? What is the relationship between social class, culture, and race? How does the influence of social class compare across multiracial backgrounds? What are multiracial Americans’ explanations for racial inequality in the United States?
 
Multiracial Americans and Social Class is a key text for undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, and academics in the fields of sociology, race and ethnic studies, social stratification, race relations, and cultural studies.”

Beyond Racial Gridlock: Embracing Mutual Responsibility: George Yancey:

Christians have struggled with racial issues for centuries, and often inadvertently contribute to the problem. Many proposed solutions have been helpful, but these only take us so far. Adding to this complex situation is the reality that Christians of different races see the issues differently. Sociologist George Yancey surveys a range of approaches to racial healing that Christians have used and offers a new model for moving forward.
