This piece of work goes deep. You start with the anger, but persuade us with your reason. Although your live presentation may have been angry, the words themselves are polished and philosophical to my ear.
I found myself wondering: what would happen if the loud kids and quiet book-readers on the bus were suddenly transported to French Guinea? Would they then suddenly look at each other and say “Hey, we’re Americans!”
Anyway, thank you for posting this thought-provoking work.
