did not like it

Danzy Senna is being touted as the belles lettres of the mulatto nation. She is currently being sued for libel by her father for the lies and the defamation within this book. It is a hatchet job against a man who suffered his entire life. Her mother's background and life except for her white privelege is a mystery. She lumps all her family members into groups. It is an infantile character assassination and I do not understand its appeal at all except to people who are obsessed with the United States' racial past. She does not look black and therefore has never experienced the discrimination of those of us who do. She should be ashamed of herself. Her father is retired and she wants this to be the way that he ends his days when he has many publications to his credit. Shame on her.
