Absolutely. It seemed like she was upset with AA Women for some reason... I did not find one AA female character that had "character". They were all fast, all wanted him, all schemers. I am not hating on the asian girl nor his Sudanese mother but they were the only ones who seemed to have any kind of moral standards or good intentions. In all fairness though, I dont think there were any "virtuous" African American women in TCWE either. I guess you were in Winters head so you understood (although may not have agreed with) her actions.
I guess its Sister Souljah's right to write whatever she wants, I do have to say that I did not HATE the story. It was just a little too long and a little too over the top.
Perhaps she will make it up in the next book. I too wanted to support her as a writer and I am glad that I did. I just expected more. But my ego is accomodating enough to understand that she does not sit down at her computer thinking "how can my writing please Mocha today"
