Cover Girl Mismatch Part 2

Remember last year's Cover Girl Mismatch? Well, it's happened again, and what makes it so surprising is that the publisher that committed this new mismatch is the same one that did it before. An excerpt from the blog entry of Into The Wardrobe:

...Bloomsbury USA has made the same mistake with the YA novel Magic Under Glass by Jaclyn Dolamore. Magic Under Glass has a dark-skinned female protagonist.

Why, Bloomsbury? Why? Whitewashing covers is RACIST. Thinking that books with people of color on the cover won't sell is RACIST. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Shame on you, Bloomsbury. I won't be buying any of your books until you stop whitewashing your book covers.
