re: non-POC writing POC characters -- as a white writer, I find myself reluctant to include any deep POC characters because in my head I hear protest saying I Did It Wrong, that I'm assuming, that I Just Don't Know, and that has been said by POC to non-POC creatives. The implication is that only POC can write POC characters, and this seems to be a contradiction while at the same time a reality. How to go about it? I'm looking for suggestions.
