“Maybe I’m responding because I have had reviews in the past that have accused me of not writing about white people. I remember a review of Sula in which the reviewer said, “This was all well and good but one day she [Toni Morrison] will have to face up to the real responsibilities and mature and write about the real confrontation for black people which is white people.” as though our lives have no meaning and no depth without the white gaze.”

“as thought our lives have no meaning and no depth without the white gaze.”
Girl, you better stop preaching Gospel!!!
