Ethnic tagging.

/Ethnic tagging.

Romance review site, Love In the Margins, looks at the impact of tagging works by the ethnicity of the protagonists. On the one hand, this can help people who are looking specifically to read works featuring characters of colour. On the other, does it serve to reinforce white as some kind of “default”, particularly if characters of colour are tagged but white characters aren’t.

And interesting discussion, and definitely read the opinions in the comments, too.
