WHITE SKIN, DARK SKIN, POWER, DREAM Introduction Some years ago I
almost missed a long-distance flight from Europe to India. Arriving late at the
airport, I discovered that the flight had been overbooked and that I had been "
bumped" from my Economy Class seat; however, as luck would have it, I could
still be accommodated (if I so wished) in First Class. On the long flight to India I
therefore found myself sitting, in unaccustomed comfort, next to a retired Indian
military man of very ...

Have you ever watched the light from a candle in a dark room? Absolutely
astounding! The light is so warm, radiant and entrancing. A little flame can
amazingly light an entire room even with just a small flicker. That's me— Merlot. I
am like the flame of a candle. I am hot, fiery, warm, candescent, and I have the
personality that can light up an entire room, no matter how dark, with just a flicker
—a smile, a warm hello. I often wonder, Where does the light come from? How
did it get there?

Nonetheless, White and middle class is the “hidden transcript[s]” . . . of
femaleness, the womanhood invariably and historically celebrated in academe.
In striking contrast, Black womanhood is often presented as the antithesis of
White women's lives, the slur or the “nothingness” . . . that men and other women
use to perpetuate and control the image of the “good girl” and by extension the
good woman. (p. 82) Specifically, Black women compared to their White female
counterparts are ...

[Girls] were out in the morning by nine o'clock you know, eight-thirty, nine o'clock.
It's like most of the girls that I would have been hanging out with, we would all be
there . . . and the games were all predicated on rhythm. [You] jump to patterns.
You were cool and you had rhythm. (Personal interview, January 2, 1995) Liese's
words call attention to the way language about rhythm keys into the social
consciousness surrounding youth and black popular music culture. Being cool—
acting ...

As I approached him I heard him say 'here is a quarter little girl, I see you made it.
” My Papa John always had a large cigar hanging out the side of his mouth and I
loved the smell of the brand he smoked. He was a very tall gentle man, who was
one of the best cooks I knew. He would cure bacon in his basement, and could
make the best rolls I have ever tasted. His rolls where so good, on Sundays
people would come to my grandparents' home from various places in the city to
buy ...

The universal gender classification, “girl,” is white. In all three of these successful
series, a default girl (or two) is implied and she is white. That is the norm and that
is what is acceptable. Anything else is niche. If it weren't for YouTube, I would be
extremely pessimistic, but I'm not anymore. YouTube has revolutionized content
creation. If it weren't for YouTube, I would still be at studios trying to convince
executives that Awkward Black Girls really do exist. If it weren't for YouTube, I
would ...

Short girls. Thin girls. I fell in love with them all. { We're in someone's house and
the parents are out. Four guys, four girls. The girls go off to four different rooms in
the house. Four pieces of paper sit on the coffee-table in front of us. I take one. It
says 'Toilet'. Great. I stand in the hall outside the door of the toilet as the other
boys move off to other rooms. I don't know who's in there. I open the door. It's a
tiny room with literally just a toilet. Sitting on the lid is a girl with ivory skin and
black hair, ...

The girl in black even gave me two more bottles of pills for later. When the bell
rang, we walked out of the ladies room giggling with each other. We walked to my
locker first to grab my physics book. Each girl that crossed our path looked at us,
flipped their Barbie, blonde hair and smirked in our direction. “Wow, freak!”
someone said. “Why are you talking to yourself, moron?” I heard someone else
comment. I didn't understand why they had to act like that. I was obviously not
talking to ...

'But it was such a beautiful hat,' I wail. 'Face it, darling, you haven't got a normal
head.' He stomps to the front door. 'Now is this proof of posting or have I got to
pay?' Pete's goddaughter Sophie, who is six, comes to visit, accompanied by her
parents, and by Hannah, her smaller, ercer, faster-moving sister. We sit about
chatting, drinking tea and eating cake. Slowly, as though drawn by an invisible
magnetic eld, the two little girls sidle towards the exercise bike. When they get
close to it, ...
