Connecticut’s official Mr. T cosplayer?

Barnes & Noble decided to do something special to celebrate Black History Month, which is a good thing. The way they went about it though was not, since rather than use the opportunity to promote black authors they would take classic literature covers and replace the white characters with black character, earning them the accusation of committing “literary blackface”. You know you screwed up when you create a whole new derogatory term. It took that cry for them to cancel the project and promote black writers, which they should have done in the first place.
