Fighting a Forbidden Battle


Vale a pena ler este lúcido e corajoso texto de Jesse Lieberfeld (de 17 anos) que venceu um dos Martin Luther King Jr. Day Writing Awards:

"I can obviously never know what it must have been like to be an African-American in the 1950s. I do feel, however, as though I know exactly what it must have been like to be white during that time, to live under an aura of moral invincibility, to hold unchallengeable beliefs, and to contrive illusions of superiority to avoid having to face simple everyday truths. That illusion was nice while it lasted, but I decided to pass it up. I have never been happier."
