Last quote by Claudia Rankine

That's one thing about being black in America. You have to curtail your movements, to live in such a way that what the white gaze projects upon blackness will not end your life. So you're always thinking, can I walk at night? Can I hold Skittles in my hand? Can I have my cellphone out? If it glitters, will somebody think it's a gun? At what point can I just be? It's been fascinating to see a word become its consonants, lose its vowels, be connected to an arm movement.feedback
