Title: on black black woman
Post by: Makini on May 04, 2009, 06:27:49 AM

'I think there is probably as much difference between life of a black black woman and a ''high yellow'' black woman as between a ''high yellow'' woman and a white woman. And I am worried, constantly, about the hatred the black black woman encounters within black society. To me, the black black woman is our essential mother - the blacker she is the more us she is - and to see the hatred that is turned on her is enough to make me despair, almost entirely, of our future as a people'
