I’ve been super excited about the news that Nnedi Okorafor’s novel “Who fears death”’ll get the HBO treatment.
There was for example an io9 post that also mentioned GRR Martin, because he is an important part of it, and there was a tweet by Vice:
I didn’t even catch the big offense next to not naming the widely known author of this incredible novel, they not just didn’t mention Nnedi Okorafor, they actually made an effort of cropping out her name or at least choosing a cropped picture of the cover art.
Like was that a competition how many insults you can pack in 140 characters?
Either way, what an asshole move of centering a story around a well-known white dude and making every effort possible not to mention the WOC author.
I love her answer though
