I am wondering if any of you read Maya Angelou's books? There's an essay " Grandmother's Victory". In it, She mentions the word "Powhitetrash", this phase indicates that Angelou harboured superiority complex class against white poor kids that came to their store frequently. She is mindful of the racial issues existing in the community but since Angelou is a kid too, she couldn't pass the discontent to the elder whites,thus extending her displeasure to poor white kids,this can only be understood when readers explore the use of the demeaning word "powhitetrash" frequently which was a clear classification and indication that Angelou's Grandmother was a somebody in the community.She owned the land and grocery store, of which land- and the "Powwhitetrash" family lived on it. I am not saying that Maya was a racist,but I am exploring her writing and how she played with words by then. What are your views?
