The World vs James Baldwin (et al)

“You have to decide who you are, and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you” -James Baldwin
 
“You have to understand expectations — the current of social cause-and-effect; then you have to make a cost-benefit analysis to determine whether you’d prefer to 1) ‘force the world to deal with you’, 2) force yourself to deal with the world” -enculturation of successful Jews, Asians, et al
