Third week is over! Have no idea how I’m gonna survive the last one full of administrative adventures and animation challenges, but there’s no way for retreat the inktober)
Your post about white slave owners' wives reminded me about how in the new Roots (which is terrific btw), people, especially white women, took the focus away from the black characters to Nancy Holt, a white woman who was a Yankee spy (but still had a slave?) and they were like WOW LOOK AT THAT SEE NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE BAD! GIRL POWER! and ignore all the black women in the series.
