“The roles that we construct are constructed because we feel that they will help us to survive and also, of course, because they fulfill something in our personalities; and one does not, therefore, cease playing a role simply because one has begun to understand it.” — James Baldwin, “The Black Boy Looks at the White Boy,” Esquire (May 1961)
