“Could one know a person beyond the surface? Of course. Then, why make it a priority to discuss the surface? Why make it a priority to discuss race? Why not make it a priority to discuss something deeper? Something of culture, something of history, being the things that one could identify or relate to another for. That makes personal union, not the ignorance of a person that would cause the feeling of fear.
For to remain on the surface would spark that fear, that dread of being close.”– Modern Romanticism
