Barnes and Nobles laziest attempt to commemorate Black History Month

Recently Barnes and Nobles on 5th Avenue tried to kick off a Black History Month in the laziest way instead of showcasing books by black authors.

Barnes and Noble took classic books and colored it Black and a lot of these illustrations were kind of tone-deaf, to say the least titles like Frankenstein, Peter pan, The Adventures of Alice, Romeo and Juliet.

If you don’t believe me just listen to a few of the synopsis
  1. The adventures of Alice: a story about a girl who goes to an alternate dimension where mushrooms make you big and Potions make you small. (Mushrooms and DMT)
  2. Romeo and Juliet: a story about 2 people from rival families who fall in love ( Gangs)
  3. Frankenstein: a story about a mad scientist who creates a Monster who everyone wants to kill because of the way he sounds and looks ( racism and Prejudice)
  4. Peter Pan: a story about a 30-year-old boy and his village Who refuses to grow up who’s rival is a vengeful pirate Who lost his hand during a battle with Peter Pan After a gator bit it off.

There are a lot of children’s books by black authors and illustrators.
