what lines or sentences made an impression on you?

La Tonya Jordan Papa thought it was funny that most of our experiences with racism happened in the parking lot of our supermarket, and usually involved women. He would make a joke of it. Before he'd let us out of the car in the parking lot, he would ask us, "Did you lotion your arms and legs? Did you pick your hair? We don't want the nappy-hair-and-ashy-skin policewomen after us."

Geneva Millikan They all made a great impression on me. How could I possibly choose!!!!!
