Whiteness blinds white as well as black. Siphoning out the internalized racism in me is like kneeling in the riverbed, sifting fossilized bones; internal ‘Ism’ is revealed over time, through careful observation of my behavior, reflected in other folk’s mirrors. Willingness to see is crucial it seems to me. The stink bomb, the learned self-hate, the intellectual cataracts that obscure truth, cause me to move away from ‘my root.’ This can prove fatal.

language is an integral part of ones culture. much is lost when the language is gone. you try to take the soul of a man if you take his language. maybe that is what some are after. you can subjugate a people faster if you have them thinking and speaking the way you want.

Yolanda blogs about Malcolm X on the 42nd anniversary of his assassination:
