“Because women of colour experience racism in ways not always the same as those experienced by men of color and sexism in ways not always parallel to experiences of white women, antiracism and feminism are limited, even on their own terms… The failure of feminism to interrogate race means that the resistance strategies of feminism will often replicate and reinforce the subordination of people of colour, and the failure of antiracism to interrogate patriarchy means that antiracism will frequently reproduce the subordination of women”

There’s a difference between enjoying something that’s problematic and excusing something that’s problematic because you enjoy it.

When you feel like there’s nowhere to go Get up and take the high road When you feel like…

When you feel like there’s nowhere to go
Get up and take the high road
When you feel like you’re all alone
Get up and take the high road, oh, no


Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
If you wanna reach the Promised Land

Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
If you wanna reach the Promised Land

Now we must keep the faith with each temptation
Like when you feel like you’re cast in the storm
With every mile of trial and tribulation
Remember that we never walk alone

Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
If you wanna reach the Promised Land

It’s a lonely, winding path that we must travel
Leave it to our own God for help
The mysteries of the journey we’ll unravel
We’ll understand it all when we get there

Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
If you wanna reach the Promised Land

Well, when the way gets deep and deep in sorrow
And now this step is more than you can bear
And just remember there’s hope for tomorrow
Through the darkness, God will hear your prayer


Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
If you wanna reach the Promised Land

Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
If you wanna reach the Promised Land

Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
Take the high road through the valley
If you wanna reach the Promised Land
If you wanna reach the Promised Land
