So, Sara basically paraphrased what I said, but I’m flattered by how she captured my upbeatness and empowering vibes behind my statements to her so well.
I always come back to this James Cone quote, whenever I’m feeling frustrated or small:
Now if you know that you have a humanity that nobody can take away from you, they make lock you up, they may lynch you, but they don’t win.
The greats did not become greats, even as marginalized people, by shedding themselves into shape for the dominant culture; their dignity and experiences were much more important. Our stories need to be told, and the dominant culture will not tell them for us, even as they beg you to trust them.
Forget being someone else’s racial counterpart. They will be singing my praises as a black woman.
“Sometimes we have love and sometimes we lose love. Sometimes love can hurt terribly like a deep wound. In our world we have lots of ups and downs, pleasures and pains. But that’s life and we learn to accept the bad with the good. Without the bad times we wouldn’t appreciate the good times. Life is precious and I cherish every single moment.”
