    Never heard of her. Seems to be just another black racist. There are plenty more just like her of all colors.

    Elementary Mildred, I read the link. To wit (of which you seem to have little to none):“To keep alive the perception of white superiority, these white Americans tuck their heads under cone-shaped hats and American flags and deny themselves the dignity of face-to-face confrontation, training their guns on the unarmed, the innocent, the scared, on subjects who are running away, exposing their unthreatening backs to bullets,” she wrote. “Surely, shooting a fleeing man in the back hurts the presumption of white strength? The sad plight of grown white men, crouching beneath their (better) selves, to slaughter the innocent during traffic stops, to push black women’s faces into the dirt, to handcuff black children. Only the frightened would do that. Right?”Morrison continued, “On Election Day, how eagerly so many white voters—both the poorly educated and the well educated—embraced the shame and fear sowed by Donald Trump. The candidate whose company has been sued by the Justice Department for not renting apartments to black people. The candidate who questioned whether Barack Obama was born in the United States, and who seemed to condone the beating of a Black Lives Matter protester at a campaign rally. The candidate who kept black workers off the floors of his casinos. The candidate who is beloved by David Duke and endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan.”

    It is reported that when Obama was first elected President, she stated that "she felt like an American for the first time." For me, that puts her right up there with Moochelle's "proud to be an American" comment. Not a fan.

    She devoted her life to writing about the black experience. She witnessed, first hand, the worst that white racists could dish out. I do not call her a racist, she was genuine in what she wrote, fiction.

    However, I would not call her a patriot either.

    Rest In Peace, there is no racism in heaven.

    She was a terrible writer but she was up orca's butt so there you are.
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

    The Devil whispered in Trumps ear and said,
    "you're not strong enough to withstand the storm".
    President Trump whispered back,"I am The Storm"!

    She was also a lying propagandist.

    I have about as much patience for Morrison as I do angelou. Just angry black women filling that niche in universities. NOT all that intellectually gifted, angry with perceived intellectual capacity. I wouldn't be at all surprised in coming years to find out that both plagiarized.
