The Bluest Eye (Vintage International)

Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl, prays every day for beauty. Mocked by other children for the dark skin, curly hair, and brown eyes that set her apart, she yearns for normalcy, for the blond hair and blue eyes that she believes will allow her to finally fit in. Yet as her dream grows more fervent, her life slowly starts to disintegrate in the face of adversity and strife. A powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity, Toni Morrison’s virtuosic first novel asks powerful questions about race, class, and gender with the subtlety and grace that have always characterized her writing.

“You can’t go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison. BelovedSong of Solomon, The Bluest EyeSula, everything else — they’re transcendent, all of them. You’ll be glad you read them.”–Barack Obama

Why do you think Trump was consistently referred to as a “dictator” or “tyrant” etc by the media and others  throughout his presidency ? Despite having not taken the United States to war like many of his predecessors? 🤔 

Do you think that much of it had to do with how “tactlessly” he conducted himself or do you think that he was often targeted because he was simply nothing like all of the others, thus garnering him hate along the way ? 

Does it matter that he didn’t take the USA 🇺🇸 to war or are all or the vast majority of the wars that we engage in necessary and warranted ?👇Feel free to reply below 👇All comments are welcome 👇
