E year a white girl humiliates Cassie in public simply because she's black to show Cassie that having a place of their own is the Logan family's lifeblood It is I ain t nobody s little nigger The above sentence was hurled in anger by Cassie Logan a young girl growing up with her strong loving family in Mississippi at the height of the Depression It wasn t the first time I cheered aloud for her spirit and bravery and it wasn t the last The Logan family may seem to be at the mercy of the local white folks but they re not going down without a fight Her mother attempts to explain to Cassie the facts How come Mr Simms went and pushed me like he didMama s eyes looked deeply into mine locked into them and she said in a tight clear voice Because he thinks Lillian Jean is better than you are Cassie When Cassie wonders if Mr Simms thinks Lillian Jean is better because she is his daughter Mama s answer stuns her No baby because she s white Her father explains things a little differently There are things you can t back down on things you gotta take a stand on But it s up to you to decide what them things are You have to demand respect in this world ain t nobody just gonna hand it to you How you carry yourself what you stand for that s how you gain respect But little one ain t nobody s respect worth than your own The recorded version I listened to offers a powerful afterward by Taylor whose great grandfather was born a slave Racism still exists she proclaims before going on to decry attempts to whitewash history by banning books that may be too painful or use the n word There is plenty of violence and terror in this book but it s a compelling story that NEEDS to be read and a lesson that needs to be repeated again and again As Cassie s wise mother states Everybody born on this earth is something and nobody no matter what color is better than anybody else
