What is BAME & is it harmless?

Hey everyone!

I feel very called out by today's theme but in this video I'm going to be discussing the acronyms BAME & BME, what they mean and how they could be problematic. I also discuss how this affects the BAME books series I started on my channel with the purpose of discussing less mainstream books and what this means going forwards.

As always, I hope you enjoy this video, please give it a thumbs up if you do and if you'd like to see more bookish content, please SUBSCRIBE! We're almost at 500 SUBS!! x
