Monday Musings: Books with race in the title…



  • Me and The White Billionaire*
  • The Millionaire’s Black Secretary
  • My Asian Persuasian
  • My White Gynecologist
  • The Black Billionaire’s Mistress

It’s racist. It’s misogynistic. It’s tacky. It’s fetish-y. It’s gross… I think the reading audience is intelligent enough to conclude by your cover and/or book description that it’s an interracial romance. Now I know that titles like this are attention-grabbing and actually turn some people on. I’m not one of them. I actually let my curiosity get the better of me, and I bought one of these books, and you know what? It wasn’t half bad, but the title wasn’t even befitting of the storyline because he was a decent guy doing lots of other stuff besides being a millionaire. I’m one and done. Any existing or future titles that include race as a selling point automatically go on my Do Not Buy List. How do you feel about it?
