30 days of characters of color  
Between the 30 days of TV, 30 days of Whedon, 30 days of Buffy, 30 days of Angel, and 30 days of female awesome (not to mention 30 days for like every fandom ever), I really thought we needed this. I came up with the days with anythingbutgrey and diseased_inside giving feedback before I published it. I really hope this catches on and people do it.

It's really interesting to think about these things- being multi-racial, etc. I'm Asian on my dad's side, which some people pick up on and some people don't. Basically I'm as Asian as the Jon & Kate Plus 8 kids, but I don't look it.

And on my mom's side, being Sicilian...well that would be considered 'white', but when my great-grandmother came over early last century, it was not.

Excellent food for thought, miss...
