Last quote by Roxane Gay

This show is the brainchild of two white men who oversee a show that has few people of color to speak of and where sexual violence is often gratuitous and treated as no big deal. I shudder to imagine the enslaved black body in their creative hands.feedback

This page is completely dedicated to what Roxane Gay has to say. All of Roxane Gay’s quotes are organized here by date and topic. The most recent quote attributed to Roxane Gay came from an article called Confederate: will a grassroots movement sink the controversial HBO series?: “It has been more than 150 years since the civil war ended, but it often feels like some people are still living in the antebellum era. In parts of the United States and, as evidenced by Donald Trump's visit to Poland recently, the world, the Confederate flag is still proudly flown. This month, Ku Klux Klansmen marched in Charlottesville, Va., to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue from a city park. They were not the first nor will they be the last to resist acknowledging that the Confederacy lost the civil war.”.

When I am walking down the street, men lean out of their car windows and shout vulgar things at me about my body, about how they see it. Fat-shaming is real. The bruises tend to linger. My thighs have been bruised, more often than not, for the past twenty-four years.feedback

Today one of the funniest, most charming videos showed me that we have way more work to do than I ever thought. It's only a fair assumption if you're racist. Some of you should look long and hard at why you assume that mother is the nanny.feedback
