So I have this idea for a paper.
Yes, well, at least it’s the beginning of an idea.
Well, I was listening to that Toni Morrison interview, and in it she talks about there’s no one more vulnerable than a young black girl.
But I was thinking, you know, that nowadays it’s actually a privilege to be black.
Because like, our president is black, and we accept black people now.
And I think that people get all upset over things that happened, like, two hundred years ago, but you know, there’s nothing we can do about now, and I just don’t understand why we can’t just move past all that and really be colorblind.
I don’t know, it’s just an idea. But sometimes I look at my child and I wish he was black. Because then he would have so many more opportunities.
And Toni Morrison really tries to connect slavery with race, but I’m not sure I agree, because there’s been so much slavery through history.
So do you have a thesis for your paper yet?
