"“Can people of color be racist?” I reply, “The answer depends on your definition of racism.” If one defines racism as racial prejudice, the answer is yes. People of color can and do have racial prejudices. However, if one defines racism as a system of advantage based on race, the answer is no. People of color are not racist because they do not systematically benefit from racism. And equally important, there is no systematic cultural and institutional support or sanction for the racial bigotry of people of color. In my view, reserving the term racist only for behaviors committed by whites in the context of a white-dominated society is a way of acknowledging the ever-present power differential afforded whites by the culture and institutions that make up the system of advantage and continue to reinforce notions of white superiority. (Using the same logic, I reserve the word sexist for men. Though women can and do have gender-based prejudices, only men systematically benefit from sexism.)"

Double Indemnity AU: Blair and Dan conspire to kill her philandering husband.

Yes, I killed him. I killed him for money - and a woman - and I didn’t get the money and I didn’t get the woman. Pretty, isn’t it?

"I can overwhelm people with my feelings. It’s been a problem of mine since I was a kid. I’ve got to write. It’s an unspoken thing. I want to be loved for something I am. I’m easily hurt, which is why I know I can’t pay attention to my press."
