I think it's terrible that Oprah Winfrey would recommend a book as anti white as this It's not as bad as some black literature that blames everything on white people but it's close people are dicks yeah not too controversial genocide and war and rape and stalin and the crusades and inuisition and blah fucking blah yeah i know we also have amnesty international and the sistine chapel and mexican food and rosario dawson but you read the above and kinda wish that the fear and war mongerers are right and that iran would just nuke out the whole planet ahem anyway i'm not here to answer the jackass prickfucks who find the bluest eye to be racist or 'anti white' or a 'masuerade' they're just idiots it's this whole oprah thing i mean these are the same kinds of fools who get very smug and happy attacking the literary canon while sucking off eually canonized 'outsiders' such as hunter thompson thomas pynchon DFW etc writers i enjoy but have no illusion that they're any the outsider than is john updike in other words people who feel it's any different to deliberately swim against the stream as it is to swim with it so all you haters of oprah's bookclub a favor please just SHUT UP ALREADY or is it just so irritating that oprah put leo tolstoy on the nytimes best seller list? and faulkner? and garcia maruez? yeah that's some evil shit i mean getting hockey moms to read the road rather than some shit with fabio on the cover sorry hockey moms has gotta be up there with the alien and sedition act in terms of evils perpetrated on the good citizens of this country

The Bluest EyeThe Bluest Eye is Toni Morrison's first novel a book heralded for its richness of language and boldness of vision Set in the author's girlhood hometown of Lorain Ohio it tells the story of black eleven year old Pecola Breedlove Pecola prays for he Just a few days ago I happened to have a conversation with someone uite a 'well read' person too who said uite casually almost in an offhand manner how he found books written by women 'uninteresting' On prodding him for the reason behind his 'disinterest' he replied that 'books written by women just do not engage' him I didn't have the heart to ask him why a second timeAnd there it sat between us this knowledge of his disdain for women writers for some hitherto unknown reason like a breathing venom spitting invisible monster uietly killing our conversation thankfullyNo evasion Not even a half hearted attempt at rescuing an uncomfortable situation A wholly unabashed flat out declaration made with the confident self righteous air of a reader who knows what good reading should consist of and when it comes to that excludeIn retrospect when I dwell on the memory of this horrendous very real conversation I experience a crushing hopelessness It's not that particular guy I am mad at No He is only a minuscule part of the universal malady afflicting our collective psyche It is this spirited tolerance for continued ignorance and apathy that infuriates me so This tradition of belittling the female voice which speaks of personal sexual gratification love marriage and childbirth of the tyranny of beauty that forces her to adhere desperately to some predetermined standard of physical perfection the right angle to her cheekbones the right slope to her nose the right lushness to her eyelashes the right curve to her hips the right skin color to match her hair and her eyes All of this is terribly uninteresting isn't it? It was as though some mysterious all knowing master had given each one a cloak of ugliness to wear and they had each accepted it without uestion The master had said 'You are ugly people' They had looked about themselves saw nothing to contradict the statement; saw in fact support for it leaning at them from every billboard every movie every glance 'Yes' they had said 'You are right' And they took the ugliness in their hands threw it as a mantle over them and went about the world with it So what if she is a Nobel laureate? So what if she created the most haunting poignant and unforgettable elegy to the horrors that American slavery spawned? So what if she has crafted an eleven year old ugly and unfortunate Pecola Breedlove with the utmost sincerity? So what if she has made her ugly and unfortunate Pecola yearn for a shred of love and dignity in vain till her last days? So what if she has tried to shed some light on the unloved the mercilessly trodden upon rejects of a community caught in the vicious trap of fatal self loathing? So what if she has thought up a newer way to deconstruct the violence of a sexual crime by removing the convenient 'glamour of shame' routinely heaped on the victim? So what if she has tried to bestow humanity even on the ones beyond redemption? So what if she has offered a window into a world where a million and one injustices compete for primacy every moment?Such trifling womanly subject matters do not mesh well with the reading tastes of a man After all the Doris Lessings and Elfriede Jelineks Nadine Gordimers and Alice Munros Zora Neale Hurstons and Zadie Smiths the Jhumpa Lahiris and the Banana Yoshimotos the Brontë sisters and Virginia Woolfs writewrote books for only women to read and appreciate 'Women can't paint women can't write'It hurts to know that the Charles Tansleys of the world are alive and well But thankfully we have the Toni Morrisons to restore some balance
