Subject: RE: BS: Racial stereotypes in retellings?
If one is honest then there is no other way to tell the story... I mean, there are history books being used in Virginia that don't use the term slavery... Then we wonder why kids grow up and don't know squat about our history... If you are going to tell a story that deals with the past, there's a place for the fiction but the setting needs to be somewhat accurate...
