Dear Girls and Colored Kids,

You will probably have to go pretty far out of your way to find a book that recognizes that ‘your’ – everyone’s – history is just as important as the successive actions of various Great White ‘Western’ Men. Go as far out of your way as you have to in order to find these books. And then when someone tries to marginalize your history, YELL YOUR STORY LOUDLY AND CLEARLY AT THEM.

Then, when they call you angry and bitter, remind them that those are very legitimate feelings.
