Example text

Nineteen was a pivotal year for both me and my daughter, Sandra . . you know. We both became pregnant in our nineteenth year. So I’m trying to watch LaShawndra. ” I guess that’s why I worry a bit about my two girls and men. I don’t think LaShawndra has ever had a real date, where the boy comes to the door and rings the bell and steps inside for a few minutes while she finishes dressing. Not even for the prom. Since LaShawn, even though Sandra has had plenty of dates, she can’t seem to find any man that she values.

One day LaShawndra and I were shopping at the mall for school clothes. This was when LaShawndra was still pretending to go to school. She pointed out a clique of light-skinned girls who had told her right to her face that she was too dark to run with them. LaShawndra said she didn’t care, but I know her little feelings were hurt. I thought we were through with that. So, so through. And there Sandra was lying up there in that Mulberry Medical Center putting her very life on the line to deliver that yellow Negro’s baby.

The girl—she did look a little like my LaShawndra—and the boy both jumped about a mile. She clutched at her clothes and tried to pull her skirt down over her naked butt, kneeing her partner in the chin in the process. He scrambled just as quickly, grabbing his big baggy pants at the waist and turning to me with an ugly look on his face. I shone the flashlight on my own face—I can only imagine what my face looked like—so they could see that it wasn’t a mad killer or the police. ” the girl screamed, still trying to cover herself.
