"So she had to satisfy herself with the idea of love— loving the loving of things whose existence she didn’t care at all about. Love itself became the object of her love.
She loved herself in love, she loved loving love, as love loves loving, and was able, in that way, to reconcile herself with a world that fell so short of what she would have hoped for."
"Please stop calling this a nation of immigrants. We are not a nation of immigrants. We are a nation of colonizers, ex-slaves, ghosts of genocide victims, and preferred immigrants."

Judge a Book By Its Cover
Stopped in Barnes & Noble today and thought I’d see if there were any YA titles worth checking out. How depressing to note the unsubtle message being sent by the cover images of the books on display:
- 95 white girls
- 30 white boys
- 15 figures (male and female) in shadow
- 1 racially ambiguous light brown girl
- 1 drawing of an Asian boy (next to a drawing of a white girl)
- 1 half of a black boy’s face (next to 1 half of a white girl’s face)
They really ought to rename the section “White Teen Fiction.”
