Roxane Gay’s Masterpieces of Private Rage

DIFFICULT WOMEN by Roxane Gay Grove Press, 272 pp., $25.00

The stories in “Difficult Women” tackle the intimate realities of race and gender in America.

Reviewed BY RAFIA ZAKARIA

January 27, 2017

A little over two years ago, a grand jury announced they would not prosecute Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. I was in Ferguson the night of the verdict, and happened to speak to the white owner of a bike shop not far from the police headquarters where the crowds had congregated. “We had no idea our neighbors were so angry,” the man told me after I had used the restroom. I remembered his words later as the streets erupted, crowds pulsing with passion became riotous, and the air filled with fire and tear gas and sorrow.

Much has been written about the insularity of white America, particularly since then. Many analyses of the riven edges of American race relations have been astute and revelatory, exposing realities that have been for too long omitted from public debate. But the violence of exclusion is not limited to our public institutions: Racism, and reflexes learned in response to it, seep deep into our inner lives and shape our most intimate relationships. Manifestations of all of these very private American realities can be found in the pages of Difficult Women, Roxane Gay’s debut short story collection. The protagonists of her stories are not always black or brown, nor always women, but they are, all of them, complicit in the infliction or perpetration of intimate violence, racked by secret desires and seething rage. All of it deftly and terrifyingly underscores the absurdity of a society tacitly ordered by skin color and the privileges accrued by those who have ended up at the winning end, circled and watched by those who have not.

One of the most powerful stories in the collection, titled “La Negra Blanca,” features William Livingston III, a rich white man obsessed with black culture and black women. He satisfies this predilection by visiting strip clubs where he can pay Sierra—a biracial dancer who looks white but has inherited her black mother’s booty—to dance in his lap. Sierra, however, is not the origin of Livingston’s obsession; in a hidden closet he “keeps the urban clothing he sends his assistant to West Baltimore to purchase—Sean John jeans and Phat Farm hoodies and Timberland boots.” His understanding of what kids are wearing these days is dated, Gay notes, but it doesn’t keep Livingston from putting on his clothes and “posing in front of the full-length mirror and grabbing a handful of denim-clad crotch.” The scene is redolent with transgression, Livingston’s foray into blackness secret and forbidden. There is, of course, a family history of this obsession. In a moment of father-son bonding, William Livingston II and William Livingston III gather to ogle their black former housekeeper. Livingston the Elder dutifully reminds his son, however, that “you can look boy, but you cannot touch.”

There is, it turns out, no need for such caution. Livingston’s wife, a Connecticut transplant, is willfully ignorant as her husband sits in his study listening to gangster rap on his expensive headphones, surveilling via secret cameras the black housekeeper he has already sexually assaulted. This is not the limit of his violence. When Sierra, the white stripper with the black booty, rejects his advances, he follows her home and then brutally rapes her. When Alvarez, Sierra’s crush (whom she cannot understand because he speaks no English), returns and finds her violated, he wants to call the police. Sierra stops him: “occupational hazard,” she says. William Livingston III gets away with everything.

Just like Haven Monahan got away with everything.

  1. OT: To the Ian Welsh article from the other day [he’s a Sandersista, but writes excellent political analysis], WaPo reports today that some sanity broke out amongst congressional Republicans during the Q&A part of a panel discussion on Obamacare repeal at the Philly meeting.

    Worryingly, however, they report that the Trump administration representatives on the panel were a bad influence, extremely insistent on rapid repeal and replacement with LibertarianCare.

    If Trump replaces ObamaCare with LibertarianCare tens of millions of people will lose their health insurance — virtually every American will at least have friends and family who lose insurance — and he will lose reelection in a landslide.

    Trump also told Ryan yesterday that repealing Dodd-Frank would be a “top priority” of his first 100 days. Financial regulations like Dodd-Frank or Glass-Steagall don’t really have much effect on the business cycle or the economy one way or another, the Fed’s monetary policy is what matters.

    However, 99.9% of people don’t understand that, and next time there’s a recession, stock market crash or credit crunch (stock market crashes and credit crunches happen even more frequently than recessions) the media will S C R E A M that it was caused by Trump repealing Dodd-Frank, and the public will believe them.

    If Pres. Bob Dole had repealed Glass-Steagall, it would be conventional wisdom (not only among edgy internet people) that’s what caused the 2008 recession. It would’ve been blamed for the 2001 recession too. And this despite the media being much more chill about the Dole Administration.

    Besides, Wall Street donated/voted 10-1 for Clinton, and they’ll do the same in 2020. Why reward them?

    People were saying having Pence and Priebus in the administration was a good thing because it would help Trump control Ryan. It’s clear that the opposite is true. Trump needs to #FirePriebus and stop listening to Pence if he wants to have any prayer of winning reelection or leaving a positive legacy.

    Jud Süß, for the lazy, is a Nazi propaganda film about a Jew who likes to dress up as a Christian and rape Christian women, using his wealth and influence to get away with it.

    White-on-black rapes, btw, are such a rarity that they can usually be counted on one's fingers, per the FBI numbers. In a recent year, 2004 I think, they recorded zero. I bet most of the ones that do happen are prison rape with male victims.

  4. I got as far as “intimate realities of race and gender.”

    “Intimate realities” applied to women somehow always calls to mind my mother’s modest shyness over the rubber contraption with hoses she’d hide in the hall closet up where the kids couldn’t reach.

    Even though TNR is, of course, talking about diametrically opposite women and phenomena.

    I'm surprised she didn't name the wealthy white guy Thurston Howell III. So he is sexually obsessed with black women and when rejected by one special one,of course,rapes her. No doubt she based this on a real life event,but with a few,er,adjustments. Not that wealthy white men can't be predators. There's Jeffrey Epstein for one.

  10. Roxane Gay is just further proof of Steve Sailer’s rule about female journalists, who believe society and culture should change so they are perceived as being hotter. Some dumpy mulatto stripper can attract a wealthy white man only in the Gay’s fertile imagination. It just doesn’t happen in real life. In real life a well healed white man finds himself a white or Asian teenybopper to do drugs with, like the 50 year old headmaster of that Marin county private school, arrested a couple years ago in a Sacramento motel room with an unconscious blond white girl and a stash of heroin.

  11. I can’t find the reference, but the recent commenter here who noted that this kind of is projection… yup.

    No, the William Livingston III’s of the world do not go around erotically obsessing over urban youth. They just don’t think about them all that much.

    Today I Learned from Professor Gay’s Wikipedia bio that she is Haitian, bisexual, a survivor of sexual assault, and an alum of Philips Exeter Academy and Michigan Technological University.

    Something along those lines was said here: http://www.unz.com/isteve/kkkrazy-glue-hate-hoaxers-as-the-boy-who-cried-dire-wolf/

    Finally, any good deplorable understands that the Haven Monaghans of the world have 0.0 interest in terrorizing minorities on the subway, burning down buildings, or spray painting slurs onto some random car in the ghetto. They are instead quite interested in not being hectored in a 24/7 cycle, and not having to actively parrot whatever nonsense of the day as a precondition normal participation in their community. Given the electoral chance to stick it to their presumed moral superiors, they have recently been happy to take it, but otherwise they stubbornly don’t seem to actively do much of anything to telegraph the evil in their hearts.

    I suspect most of the noticers and other deplorables don’t do a lot of thinking about identitarian gender studies professors or black lives matter activists, other that occasionally being exposed to them and being glad that they aren’t much intertwined with their lives.

    The 15 year old punk rockers has no idea that the squares aren’t remotely as freaked out by him as he imagines. Thus it goes for our 2016 hoaxers.

    an alum of Philips Exeter Academy and Michigan Technological University.
     
    Philips Exeter is the #2 prep school in the country (after Philips Andover) and a "feeder" for the Ivy League, which ~80% of students wind up matriculating to. To be both black and a Philips Exeter alum and yet have gone to a no-name college means she must have had serious academic or behavioral issues.

    Take a lesson from Mick Jagger and David Bowie: White men of any means with a case of jungle fever do not, ever, just go after low grade random black underclass women. Jagger dated and impregnated a successful black stage actress and Bowie married a model and former NBA wife.

    Iman was born Zara Mohamed Abdulmajid in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. She was later renamed Iman at her grandfather's urging. Iman is the daughter of Marian and Mohamed Abdulmajid. Her father was a diplomat and a former Somali ambassador to Saudi Arabia, and her late mother was a gynecologist. She has four siblings: two brothers, Elias and Feisal, and two younger sisters, Idil and Nadia. (Wikipedia)

  13. Zuck has a new post up on Trump and Immigration:

    My great grandparents came from Germany, Austria and Poland. Priscilla’s parents were refugees from China and Vietnam. The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we should be proud of that.

    Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump.

    We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don’t pose a threat will live in fear of deportation.

    We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help. That’s who we are. Had we turned away refugees a few decades ago, Priscilla’s family wouldn’t be here today.

    That said, I was glad to hear President Trump say he’s going to “work something out” for Dreamers — immigrants who were brought to this country at a young age by their parents. Right now, 750,000 Dreamers benefit from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that allows them to live and work legally in the US. I hope the President and his team keep these protections in place, and over the next few weeks I’ll be working with our team at FWD.us to find ways we can help.

    I’m also glad the President believes our country should continue to benefit from “people of great talent coming into the country.”

    These issues are personal for me even beyond my family. A few years ago, I taught a class at a local middle school where some of my best students were undocumented. They are our future too. We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here. I hope we find the courage and compassion to bring people together and make this world a better place for everyone.

I very much enjoy Saudis and caution anyone against believing anything said about them. They are what they are, and they are fervent believers in Islam. That does not make them killers.
    But my point about ‘upstairs’ is an Iraqi joke about the ‘upstairs uncle’. The upstairs uncle is the queer one, the one who assaults the younger brothers visiting the home. So I believe she is saying the upstairs wife would be the wife no one ever talks about.

With their high cognitive abilities they quickly grasped where the power and status is in our society and systematically used those talents to move into the racket. Great way to tear down the White competition for the top of the totem pole and get an edge. They used to fight to get classified as White but now see where the juice is and are going for being classified as non-White ethnicities.
    The problem may be what happens when the other Brown groups see themselves being displaced, especially if Asians succeed in getting themselves fully qualified for oppressed peoples, affirmative action bennies and become competitors for those perks. Might be a little push back developing then?

    And what public university does she work at? Meaning, how exactly is she ripping off the taxpayers? Answer is, she gets a paycheck from Purdue so is ripping off Indiana taxpayers.

    Gay is also a competitive Scrabble player in the U.S.[29] -wikipedia

  44. Livingston’s wife, a Connecticut transplant, is willfully ignorant as her husband sits in his study listening to gangster rap on his expensive headphones, surveilling via secret cameras the black housekeeper he has already sexually assaulted. This is not the limit of his violence. When Sierra, the white stripper with the black booty, rejects his advances, he follows her home and then brutally rapes her.

    This idiocy is pure projection. It’s nothing more than the leftist fantasy of what they want to believe white men are like.

    As a white man, I can personally attest that you couldn’t pay me enough money to listen to gangster rap and then rape a black chick and some heroin-addicted stripper with “black booty.”

    Steve, this is so nakedly transparent and at odds with reality, that I feel a bit bad laughing at it. Beautiful, classy black women sought after by white men? Absolutely. But this? Oh, Lord! Dying!!

    I’m surprised she didn’t name the wealthy white guy Thurston Howell III. So he is sexually obsessed with black women and when rejected by one special one,of course,rapes her. No doubt she based this on a real life event,but with a few,er,adjustments. Not that wealthy white men can’t be predators. There’s Jeffrey Epstein for one.

    Father, Yeah, pure projection, but have you noticed how many NFL players' names are followed by II, or III or even (not making this up) The IIII. Shouldn't that be IV ? My daughter counseled a young black boy whose name ended with III. My daughter asked the mother if her son was named after his father or his grandfather and the mother answered, " No. Why would you ask that" They use II and III like a piece of bling.

  50. Well, the white dudes are getting away with raping black women and have been, well, since forever.

    According to DOJ statistics, only a handful of white men are arrested/prosecuted every year for this crime, so it is the norm for white guys to get away with this, the justice system obviously, by its own statistical evidence/admission, turning a blind eye.

    I was never bothered by him, but the replacement character really bothered me. Primarily because he came from another planet but acted like a typical American, down to his mannerisms and slang.

    The show was always great in that Daniel would always need to translate for Russians, Chinese etc but never humans taken from Earth 10k years ago or even other species...

    Though interestingly there is one episode where they conclude one side in a war is inherently evil because they incidentally mention that they are ethnically homogeneous but their opponents are multi-ethnic. With no other information they decide to intervene and the other side destroys the entire civilisation, women, children and all. At no point did they even meet the other side.

    Finally, any good deplorable understands that the Haven Monaghans of the world have 0.0 interest in terrorizing minorities on the subway, burning down buildings, or spray painting slurs onto some random car in the ghetto. They are instead quite interested in not being hectored in a 24/7 cycle, and not having to actively parrot whatever nonsense of the day as a precondition normal participation in their community. Given the electoral chance to stick it to their presumed moral superiors, they have recently been happy to take it, but otherwise they stubbornly don’t seem to actively do much of anything to telegraph the evil in their hearts.

    Zuck has a new post up on Trump and Immigration:

    My great grandparents came from Germany, Austria and Poland. Priscilla's parents were refugees from China and Vietnam. The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we should be proud of that.

    Like many of you, I'm concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump.

    We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don't pose a threat will live in fear of deportation.

    We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help. That's who we are. Had we turned away refugees a few decades ago, Priscilla's family wouldn't be here today.

    That said, I was glad to hear President Trump say he's going to "work something out" for Dreamers -- immigrants who were brought to this country at a young age by their parents. Right now, 750,000 Dreamers benefit from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that allows them to live and work legally in the US. I hope the President and his team keep these protections in place, and over the next few weeks I'll be working with our team at FWD.us to find ways we can help.

    I'm also glad the President believes our country should continue to benefit from "people of great talent coming into the country."

    These issues are personal for me even beyond my family. A few years ago, I taught a class at a local middle school where some of my best students were undocumented. They are our future too. We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here. I hope we find the courage and compassion to bring people together and make this world a better place for everyone.

I’m overweight myself but Gay looks like she uses a scooter to get around. A very sturdy scooter. I might’ve tried reading her stuff about 20 or so years ago. Now I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. This is literature that has less to do w/reality than sci-fi or fantasy. To read this sort of bilge is not to gain an insight into human character but only to get a glimpse at a really bat-shit crazy world view which despite the ascendency of Trump, more & more in our society are being raised to believe is true despite the everyday facts of mere existence.

    I'm surprised she didn't name the wealthy white guy Thurston Howell III. So he is sexually obsessed with black women and when rejected by one special one,of course,rapes her. No doubt she based this on a real life event,but with a few,er,adjustments. Not that wealthy white men can't be predators. There's Jeffrey Epstein for one.

    Father, Yeah, pure projection, but have you noticed how many NFL players’ names are followed by II, or III or even (not making this up) The IIII. Shouldn’t that be IV ? My daughter counseled a young black boy whose name ended with III. My daughter asked the mother if her son was named after his father or his grandfather and the mother answered, ” No. Why would you ask that” They use II and III like a piece of bling.

  83. Sometimes this blog makes me so angry.

    It’s possible that Ms. Zazooki’s prose is elegant enough to justify her transparent slanders (I am thinking of Mirbeau’s similar bestialisation of his political enemies) but somehow I doubt it!

    Michiko K. will make or break this one, I suppose. She hasn’t written about Ms. Bazooka’s book yet, but she did recently suggest that “1984” will be *the* book of 2017. If only she understood how right she is

    Picture instantly reminded me of this.

    Agree, that instantly popped in my head as well. The left’s current meltdown comes off about as well as Pierre Bernard’s old rants about nerdy nonsense. Too bad Conan turned into an uber-lib, but that’s what moving to LA does to people.

    A bicycle shop in Ferguson is undoubtably a front for selling bicycles stolen by the brothers. I have a hard time believing the white owner doesn't have his finger on the pulse of the ghetto. He probably ends up selling the same bicycle four or five times.

    Update: The dean of USC medical school, Carmen Puliafito. His little piece of blonde fluff is definitely a looker.
