A trend on #bookstagram has been to post of stack of books white people should read in order to become better allies for racial justice and ending white supremacy.

World War What Now?

Growing up, I had what I now think back on as a strange fascination with books from World War II. They were my favorite genre back in fourth and fifth grades. I especially loved the love stories.

But this is a battle and there can only be one person to make it out alive, well at least one winner. For those who haven’t dabbled in the world of these rich Asians,… Continue reading Battle: Crazy Rich Asians
