I am not superwoman. My mother is not superwoman. My mother’s mother is not superwoman. I am, we are, soft. Can shatter. Crumble in your hands. Our survival does not mean we prosper. We are like other women but unlike them. So do not tell us we can handle anything. We only seem like superwoman, a figment of your imagination, because you have forced our lives to be perpetual labor with only seconds of relief. If we carry the world on our shoulders and the children on our backs, what are we but your glorified mules slapped with guilt praises of perseverance and strength. Our bones and our blood and our sweat have built the wealth of nations. Our burial should not be the first time we rest.

Oppressed groups are frequently placed in the situation of being listened to only if we frame our ideas in the language that is familiar to and comfortable for a dominant group. This requirement often changes the meaning of our ideas and works to elevate the ideas of dominant groups.

I considered suicide, but I felt a strange fondness for my body, my life. Scarred as they were, they were mine.

White people are a very recent invention, and I do say invention. In America it is very clear that many people came here for many complex reasons, but they were not white before they got here. They were Irish or Polish or English or German, they didn’t become white until they got here. And they had to become white in self-defense because I was here. And I was here for them, to work for them to keep them white.
