Between white people pretending to be lesbian women of color and trying to get lucrative book deals (in order to, "better direct white people to listen to real women of color and real stories..."UM), and People of color still needing white people to stand in as metaphors in 2011 in movies...

I'm reminded more and more why I organize stuff like the Remyth Project or the APIA Spoken Word Summit:

Our stories are our voices are our lives are our history. These are the words they put in our mouths, steal from our mouths, silence with time and gatekeepers. These are the ways they turn us from people into imaginary beings and magical Not People in a Not History.
