Every reader, as he reads, is actually the reader of himself.

"You couldn’t walk around like this," said Don, looking down. Their hands were clasped tightly together. 


Love is so sweet

  • stop coddling white people when they feel white guilt - it’s not helping them to understand the power dynamics at play and will essentially lead them to become complacent
  • white people are not expected to do the work to become an ally - if they are, no cookies, if they arent - they’re racists….
Marfmellow on white privilege - this is what I read while I’m delayed at the airport :)
