From The Source of Self-Regard: Selected Essays, Speeches, and Meditations, by Toni Morrison


"The imaginative and historical terrain upon which early American writers journey is in very large measure shaped and determined by the presence of the racial Other. Statements to the contrary insisting upon the meaninglessness of race to American identity are themselves full of meaning. The world does not become raceless or will not become unracialized by assertion."
