Talking on the Radio

Last night I did an interview with SistersTalk Radio.  It was so much fun.  A great interview.  The host was hard on me, which was really good.  She said that in my book, My Miserable, Lonely, Lesbian Pregnancy, I came across racist.

I said, “I’ve been accused of being a brat, of being homophobic, of being an entitled cow, but never racist.”

She said I mentioned race whenever I described a character.  That race seemed to be at the top of my mind.

I think she might be right. When I wrote My Miserable, Lonely, Lesbian Pregnancy, I was a new writer. I thought then that I needed to physically describe all my characters.  If one of my characters was black or Latino or whatever, I probably said so.  But here’s my question:  Is awareness of race, racist?
