But what about those of us living in the real world—and on a real budget? No one is on the sidelines; by our actions or inactions, by our caring or our indifference, we are either part of the problem or part of the solution.”“No one is on the sidelines; by our actions or inactions, by our caring or our indifference, we are either part of the problem or part of the solution.” I wish the collection of essays lived up to my expectations. On the one hand it was great to see WOC in a space where they could display a diversity of opinion, but on the other hand I felt some of the essays reinforced certain stereotypes about the black female experience. plus, it will NEVER BE OK to say that a chicken is the same as an african human slave.
These authors are already dealing with at least the intersections of theIt was awesome to read about veganism from a point of different than my own.
