medievalpoc

medievalpoc is a white person making money by self-admitingly providing eurocentric commentary and then some downright incorrect ancient aliens tier historiography and is making more money than adjuncts (including adjunct faculty of color!) teaching actual history

Let this be a reminder that Medievalpoc/Girljanitor and whatever the hell other names they go by, is not Native or Romani yet they continue to claim they are. How long does it take for people to realize that they, like Andrea Smith and Rachel Dolezal, are a fraud? We can no longer allow people like this to run around communities (Native, Black, etc.) speaking over and profiting off of us, and spreading inaccurate information in the process. Natives, Romani, and other POC have called them out. This has to end. Enough is enough is ENOUGH!

A Showcase of Diversity from Indie Science Fiction, Fantasy & Speculative Fiction Authors

For Medieval POC’s Diverse Fiction Week

Sometimes it’s just nice to be represented on covers. I’ve found quite a few Indie Authors who’ve made an effort to ensure that people of color are represented in their stories and on their covers. Each of the following books are either the first in their series or standalones.

Third Daughter by Susan Kaye Quinn: A steampunk trilogy set in an alternate east-Indian world.

Blades Of Magic by Terah Edun: A high fantasy series with a sword-wielding protagonist who doesn’t wait to be saved.

Justice Calling by Annie Bellet: A Native American sorceress in Idaho who’s an unabashed gamer nerd.

Forever Mine by Elizabeth Reyes: A stunning contemporary romance with Latino protagonists.

Fall of Sky City by S.M. Blooding: An adventurous steampunk series that sets sail on airships in an East Asian setting.

Girl With Flying Weapons: An assassin-in-training stars in a cozy mystery set in 9th-Century China.

The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw by Suzy Turner: Two adopted sisters work together to fight off supernatural evils in London.

What Kills Me by Wynne Channing: An urban fantasy series with a sassy Asian vampire who finds herself the hunted prey of a legendary prophecy.

The Queen Bee of Bridgeton by Leslie DuBois: A young ballerina transitions from living in a poor urban community when she wins a full-scholarship to a top-tier school.

The Preacher’s Promise by Piper Huguley: A schoolteacher’s journey through the post-Civil War South in a harrowing effort to uplift her race.

Had a great time playing the For Honor Beta today. Its utter chaos and it was so-much-fucking-fun to just cut through hordes of enemies. High learning curve and there are some accessibility issues I could see for folks that have a hard time with a standard PS4 controller.

It takes both hands to effectively move, block, parry and attack. The UI reminds me of Destiny but the combat and other things remind me a lot of AC: Syndicate. Really loved it, will try and pick it up when it’s out.

Oh the Beta is mostly PVP, unsure if the full game will be PVP or PVE. ALSO, the women are in proper armor, no boob windows, exposed midriffs. Like actual proper armor. I could cry in joy.
