Save the Pearls criticism

Victoria Foyt QA Victoria Foyt

Foyt received criticism for her self-published novel Save the Pearls: Revealing Eden, a dystopian novel in which people of African descent are the "ruling class". Reviewers of an early excerpt described elements of the novel as racist, including the use of the term "coal" as a racial slur, and a promotional video for the book which included the use of blackface. The science fiction and fantasy magazine Weird Tales announced that it would publish an excerpt from the novel in one of its first issues under new ownership, but after readers threatened a boycott, the planned publication was cancelled. Foyt responded to the criticism by stating that she had not intended the book's contents or advertising to be racist, and that her intention was to write a novel addressing the issue of global warming.
