it wasn’t till, last year or so i was watching The Color Purple. there’s the part where Whoopi Goldberg has the line: “I'm poor, black, I might even be ugly, but dear God, I'm here. I'm here.”
and i know, i am white and living that privilege life but there are many times when i come back to this blog to write and i write “i’m still here.”
and that’s where i get the line from. it’s my bastard quote from The Color Purple.
and that’s my greatest achievement, i’m still here.
