This is a brilliant idea, and honestly, African Americans read books by non-African American authors all the time and it just seems fair that this should be reciprocal.
APOOO Book Club had a thoughtful, yet very funny post by author, Carleen Brice. Carleen is spearheading this effort on her blog http://www.welcomewhitefolks.blogspot.com/ (She's not a Christian fiction author, but I've been told her book, Orange Mint and Honey, is excellent.).

I ask my non-African American readers (I hate using the word "white", seems so uncool. Save us from our labels) to not be offended. If you watch the video you'll find it's very cute, done in fun and certainly in no way offensive. I had to share and I also think it's a good idea to diversify the old book shopping list, which I'm sure you already do or you wouldn't be visiting my blog. But maybe you can share with friends who don't feel the same way.
In honor of this post, I'm going to post an interview by a non-African American author real soon and ask my readers to please buy her very well written book.
Thanks for stopping by.
