Spoken Taboo

The thoughts, words, and actions that are natural to me but taboo to others.

—To this day, there are Black people who don’t believe Black is beautiful. I’ve heard some Black writers say, ‘I’m a writer of the universal experience.’ Well, I maintain that I write from a Black experience and I tell others, you become universal when the Black experience you write is understood and acknowledged by others! This is who we be, so deal with it.
