Too Deep for Anger

To be Black in this Country is to Always Affirm Something

Composer Harry Partch used to talk about how we are bewitched by our cultures, and how that bewitchment is deep, mysterious, and not easily eluded.

So unless you're coming at it like the visionary Toni Morrison does in Paradise (in which the race's moral compass gets reset by transdimensional Amazon warrior-princesses), be advised: just shut your yap and play your guitar.
