@AlPonce how is it discrimination against white people when there are plenty of white agents who only have white clients in this day and age? I'm so sick of white folks like you (assuming you're white or a white-washed POC) saying "this is not fair because POC this POC that" as of you guys aren’t one of the most privileged groups of people on this planet. Also it's hard for BIPOC's to get published hence why you see Ms. Motala open to BIPPOC only submissions only. As a Poc Canadian myself this is my 2nd time getting rejected by Motala even if she only takes BIPOC books. Fyi, learn how to spell of you’re gonna be racist.
