This community was created in response to RaceFail 09. It serves as a place for POCs and white allies to discuss the issues pertaining to RaceFail and to counterract its destructive effects. While foc_u was created in response to RaceFail, it isn't just about RaceFail. This community also serves as a place to celebrate and affirm POCs of the speculative fiction genre, celebrate our favorite POC characters and storytellers, and it's also intended to be a fun place where we can come and discuss our fandoms, recommend movies, books, authors, etc.
It is also intended to be a safe space to discuss issues of race and minority issues in general and how they affect speculative fiction.
For the time being, the community is under moderation as it further establishes itself. Because this is a safe space, members are expected to be respectful to one another. Discussion is heavily encouraged, but attacks, flaming, derailing and trolling will not be tolerated.
That said, have fun (no really please do) and welcome.
The community was founded and is maintained by neo_prodigy.
