& kinda heartbroken
i'm writing a story set in ancient rome, and i have two protagonists, a black roman girl and a white british slave. i've got it this way round because i wanted to avoid all my black characters being slaves. however, as it is set in ancient rome, to these characters slavery is normal (i still portray it as the atrocious institution it is). is it problematic to have a black character who is ok with slavery? (she changes at the end, but for the majority of the novel this is the case).
