He was reading this book called Song of Solomon.Song of Solomon is a 1977 novel by American author Toni Morrison. It follows the life of Macon "Milkman" Dead III, an African-American man living in Michigan, from birth to adulthood.
The novel is, as all the other works of Toni Morrison, an example of African-American Literature. It usually problematizes the question of African American identity and relationships among African-Americans and between black and white individuals and communities. Thus, the main conflict of the novel is the Milkman’s search of ways of becoming independent from his family, ways of self-realization, and answer the questions who he is, how he lives and why.
Was this hipster expressing white guilt or something? Is he a poof, you think? Mittens.
I cannot imagine reading a book like this under any circumstance.
