The LAST two sentences: I’m always trying to figure out what would make life for Black people as equal, as democratic, as real, and as possible for the full capacity of human fulfillment as it is for other people. I think that Black people are the American promise.” <3
I really, really like Black people. I like us when we’re making bad decisions. I like us when we’re listening to misogynist music. I like us when we’re paying our bills on time and we’re not. I like us when we get married and have these beautiful ceremonies and jump over brooms. And I also like us when we’re bold and brave enough to raise children on our own. I like the men who write to me from prison and, you know, use all their jailhouse lingo and tell me about the political world. I also like the, you know, little conservative girls who sit in my class and argue with me sort of the Black conservative line. I’m engaged by us. I’m fascinated by us. I’m always trying to figure out what would make life for Black people as equal, as democratic, as real, and as possible for the full capacity of human fulfillment as it is for other people. I think that Black people are the American promise.
Days like this, those 75+ degree weather days in the San Gabriel Valley, I’m probably the most tempted to just leave the office and head to the beach and work from there.
