Do I have a stamp on my forehead that says, ”The National Spokesperson for the Plight of Black People”? How the hell should I know the black perspective on The Color Purple? That’s it, if I don’t change classes, I’m gonna hurt this fool. Teachers treat me like I’m some kind of Rosetta stone for African-Americans. What? Black people learn how to read, and we all miraculously come to the same conclusion?
^ BRILLIANT. This need for a monolith is the biggest, unspoken issue. Sorry not here to make your understanding easy. People are people and they differ. Sorry that it is inconvenient for your linear, retrograde concept of humanity. I’m not here to fit in your limited perception of anything that is not your likeness.
