- The author shows off her knowledge of SCIENCE! by using the taxonomic names for plants and animals, even when it’s unnecessary or makes the writing confusing
- The author shows off her knowledge of LITERATURE! by quoting Emily Dickenson and calling her “Aunt Emily”
- the Spanish isn’t incorrect but it sounds awkward
- The author gets nostalgic for a time when white power went unchallenged
- Anyone calls Bramford “El Tigre”
- Eden calls Jamal her “dark prince”
- Eden fucks something up so massively that it furthers the plot
- The author suggests that the best people are “colorblind” or “colorblindness” will end racism
- The author makes references to racist practices in real life but takes them out of context (eg – performers wearing “white face”)
- The author describes people of color as being wild, animalistic, or some variation thereof
- The author confuses several different Latin American cultures and geographical locations
- The author describes people of nonwhite races as looking basically the same or offers very little physical description
- … and describes white people in great detail/as individuals
- Bramford and Eden are about to fuck but then don’t
- Eden starts speaking in clichés about love
