“When I first started going to court and so forth,” said Brown, “I had the usual experiences. ‘Are you the defendant? Are you the court reporter? Are you the plaintiff? No? Well then, who are you then?’ It never occurred to them that I could be the lawyer.”
Man this makes me so happy.
Congratulations! So very impressive.
Thank you for being the personification of everything rotten to the core yt folk live to deny in, and about us, each and every day.
No bit*hes...she's not the court reporter, clerk, lunch room attendant, mail room attendant, etc.
She is why your grandpappy didn't want Negroes to learn to read. She's why you have to down a few drinks before you can face yourself after having your azz handed to you. She's why you try ever harder to marginalize what threatens you.
That heavy sensation in your chest? That's Mrs. Brown displacing you. That's your slipping foothold on the edge of a cliff. Someday you will get the shove you so richly deserve. For now, we are greatly enjoying the inch you've lost and we've gained.
Burns doesn't it?
Congratulations Mrs. Brown!!!!
