Watch J.K. Rowling Get (Poetry) Slammed for Racism in ‘Harry Potter’

In “To J.K. Rowling, from Cho Chang,” poet Rachel Rostad takes J.K. Rowling to task for her portrayals of minorities in the Harry Potter series — and particularly for Cho Chang, Harry’s weepy first kiss, pointing out that since “Cho” and “Chang” are both Korean surnames, finding a Chinese girl named Cho Chang would be like finding “a Frenchman named García Sánchez.” Rostad has also posted a response to the controversy her video sparked, which you can watch here. What do you all think? [via Jezebel]
