I believe that when the narrative focuses on race, a writer’s race matters in which it may affect how the topic is analyzed. A person of one race may have their own perception or personal bias of another based on personal experiences and their own beliefs. When it comes to portraying one’s own race, the writer has a first hand perspective and can give their own unbiased opinion. While anyone can depict the struggles of another through their own point of view, the most accurate perspective comes from the person or group going through that struggle. 

Kate Chopin being a white woman in the 1890s has a high impact on how she depicts other races in her writing. During this time, white people lived a very different life than poc, specifically black people. Due to these differences, one would expect Kate Chopin to sugarcoat or downplay the struggles and racism experienced by black people. However, Kate Chopin accurately depicts the simple truths about the experiences of black people and racism amongst her community during the 1890s. An authors race does not matter when they are stirring about race, so long as they are able to put their own personal beliefs and biases
