please stop calling Black children who have different interests and tastes white

it’s damaging and alienating

Is this the same dude who later said he doesn’t want to deal with the “politics” of dating white and…

you don’t think there are any black girls … devoting their lives to literature, or future studies, or books in general …

I believe in the reality of work. Period. I do not distinguish between creative and critical writing because all writing is creative… And all writing is critical, requiring the same shifting, selection, scrutiny and judgement of the material at hand. The distinctions are not useful except to people who want to engender an other with whom they can struggle and over whom they can gain power. And because they are useful in that way, they are dangerous.
