One of the most interesting characters in the novel I am writing, is a female antagonist. She is very cool and superbly capable, and she is a sociopath. But also, she happens to be black. She is bad and manipulative and as much as I can totally see where she's coming from, and I personally adore writing her, I am worried that the fact she is a "baddie" might be interpreted as a racial stereotype. In the story, there's quite a few different nationalities and races, and she wasn't conceived as a "black antagonist" or anything, she simply appeared to me as a fully complex character, and in my mind's eye, I saw her and she happened to be black. I'd be grateful for your thoughts about this.
