    @Lori Johnson, everything has to be a race thing because in just about every place in today's world people of colour experience institutionalised racism - they are not well served or represented in parliaments, media, education, healthcare, and every other aspect of life. Same with sexuality, with gender, with disability. People are being routinely erased and made invisible, their lives rendered 'exotic' and not deserving of every day attention and respect. It is our responsibility to say something when people are ignoring the experiences and existence of whole swathes of the Earth's population.

    Ditto to what @Janice Brown said. I love seeing positive conversations happening in this online space, too many negative ones are out there.

    @ Tara Ashford Well said! And there are many of us who appreciate seeing discussion. The world need not fall apart because there is disagreement or even criticism. More is learned from intelligent discussion than when other opinions are silenced.

    i think that people SHOULDN'T make EVERYTHING a race thing and it doesn't always need to be brought up and not everyone always needs to be reminded that there are other races. if you want books with main character being a different race than white,make your own list and get over this list that was made. when we are in school why in the world is the a 'black history month' and a 'spanish history month' and things of that nature? when is white history month? where is irish, scottish, german, russian history month? why make any race better than the other where they should have their own lists of books or their own special month? and NO ONE better not answered because they were slaves and how their people were treated because realistically whites took america from the indians and they don't have a history month. and Ireland was taken over and Irish (what i am) were made slaves IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY, and we don't learn anything about that in school. that is something i learned on my own.

    I soooo Agree with RobertAnn Smiley, get over the black crap, that isn't what this list was about but of You want then bring it on !!! Where is the White Miss Anerican, the WET channel,united White College Fund? Let White people try that & see how fast you play the race card. This could all be where is the Hispanic College Fund, Asian Miss America & so on, the people that cry Race the most are the ones that ARE the racist !!!
