New essay on American Race

“We don’t talk about the way my hair feels when I run my fingers through its tendrils. We don’t talk about my skin’s olive tone or the way it browns in the summer sun. We don’t talk about the wood my parents reclaimed from a barn for the floors of our house. We don’t talk about the sea of sameness I see when I walk to class. I don’t want to talk about race.”
