We could be anywhere, as long as we're together.
The hard, gritty truth of the matter is that I hardly ever think about race. Those times when I did think about it a lot I did so because of my guilt for not thinking about it. I don't believe in race. I believe that there are people who will shoot me or hang me or cheat me and try to stop me because they do believe in race, because of my brown skin, curly hair, wide nose and slave ancestors. But that's just the way it is.My friend Adam had this funny habit of naming things. He went around and named all the plants and animals and things he encountered. It was what separated him from them. It was what made him human, and them other.
