Example text

Native Americans were already here; their culture comes before Columbus. Those Blacks who were slaves knew themselves within their particular African origins before they became captives, of other Africans, or whites. To survive, they had to come to know the white slavemasters and slavemistresses. This ‘deep’ way of viewing is not necessary for the powerful.

So the blind spots I reveal here are a mix of those of an antiracist feminist who grew up in the margins of this society and those of a dissidence still threaded through power-filled viewings from the West. One more caveat. I reject the view or assumption that there is a coherent geographical location of the West, not only today, but also before. And I also use the phrase the West as a constructed political identity that has enormous resonance and power.

But I now felt that their choices demanded too much from me.
