This is such a profound statement. I feel this in my soul. To forsake our own culture to assimilate or center Whiteness is to live a life of discomfort. It's to be subhuman. The contorting and conforming just to be is to much to bear. Even in the privacy and comfort of our homes we are not in peace, bombarded with imagery of Whiteness, tropes and stereotypes of Blackness, and ideologies of Whiteness.
