Jaz Sufi – “A ‘Woke’ White Woman Calls Me an ‘Emotional Terrorist'”

Performing at the 2018 Rustbelt Poetry Festival.

“Don’t get me wrong: I have white friends. My mother is a white woman, but my mother reflects the light, she doesn’t snatch it from the air. When my mother makes a mistake, she doesn’t expect applause after her apologies.”
