i am so angry at the jurors of white women who could not see themselves wholly in these four young women of color. and two of whom are mothers.
this is what i want to tell my daughter…that you can fight for your life and your dignity in this world. but, i think that i may end up telling her (as my mother did to me) that you have to fight for your life and your dignity in this world no matter what. and the world will rarely reward you for that courage or intelligence or creativity. the world will rarely hold you after you are bloody and exhausted and rock you to sleep softly. instead more likely they will throw you into a cell.
god, this world is sad. but if she fights, she will not only have a better chance to survive whole and loving, she will support four lesbian women who ought to have the right to fight for us.
