Hey everyone! I’ve recently come up with the character I want to put into my story, and the character I have in mind is an African American high schooler. However, me being a white, middle-class female, I’m unsure of what the rules here are… Since I want to write about the struggles that come with race, I was wondering if I even have the right? Are there guidelines to follow? Any insight all of you experienced writers have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
