Angry, black and female are not qualities that should carry shame. Alone or combined, they are not aspects which make one less. Good for you for reclaiming them fully. I can only join you on the Angry front, but I’m with you 100% there. Thank you, also, for speaking about the addictive aspects of whiteness— which I think are often presented in a different way. Your words spoke to me and were familiar. I was never deliberately complacent in my whiteness, but I was absolutely addicted to it and enjoyed it. Just being able to realize that made a huge shift for me to be able to better hear and understand. You are also an amazing writer, so please keep it up. There was a musical quality to your words and structure which made me extremely jealous. I’m hoping you have more content here to read.
