“... when you do get a job everybody says, Well, they wanted a black woman, which necessarily puts you on a level where you have to prove yourself above being a woman and being black.... Now, I would say, in certain situations, it helped me simply because I was mildly attractive, not because I was black or a woman. That gets you more mileage than anything else.... God help you if youre not an attractive woman.”
—Theresa Brown (b. 1957)
“Because it shut not up the doors of my mothers womb, nor hid
sorrow from mine eyes.
Why died I not from the womb?”
—Bible: Hebrew Job (l. III, 1011)
