If you have discussed it at length , feel free to point me in the direction of that thread but in case, you're interested in reading the article, here it is:

IMO, every writer has something that vexes them. But just because this writer is afraid to write minority characters doesn't change the fact that others aren't. There are white writers who have written very good minority characters and minority writers who have written good white characters. Men can write great women and women can write great men. There will always be "consumers" who think that authors should only write characters that are a mirror image of who they are. That's just the risk of putting your creative effort out there. For me its about whether the writer crafts his/her characters in a meaningful way.
