What a hard day.

I've spent most of the day being attacked at a luncheon by "White Women With Voices"--the same local group who attacked me in Sister-2-Sister magazine.

Of course, I won.

But it still hurt to be at a black function with wall to wall black people and to have to comandeer a microphone by myself against 16 irate white women.

Sadly, I think black men enjoy watching these kind of public womanist race fights.....and because I am African, most AA women aren't sure whether they identify with me or not.

But I won.

It's just that...I'm getting old and weary. And I put my soul in this book, and I'm very serious about it.

I feel that I've really given of myself.
