201: Kali Hawk

Here are two things you need to know about Kali Hawk;

1) Don’t box her in.
2) Don’t bring her down.

Ever evolving, she seems at times like a four year old bouncing around inside the circus of thoughts serving as her brain, fueled by the idea of “why?” Why do things have to be the way you say they are? You put up a wall, she pretends it’s a door. You draw a line in the sand, she turns it into a smiley face. She is thoughtful, friendly, mischievous, clever, and more than anything, intent on being free to be. She is her own mama bear protecting her inner child. And when you talk to her, good luck trying to figure out which is which. You want to find out what it’s like to be on a  date with a child prodigy? Punch Play.

One thought on “201: Kali Hawk”

  1. Great interview but I feel she is delusional about the race thing. Ultimately she does not recognize that racism involves the power of one race to impose its will upon another. Race is about power, and we have to face that fact. It has little to do with overt race hatred or with negative racial attitudes, or with the projection of racial stereotypes … or with whites not understanding the nature of their racism; that’s not it. And when you define it in terms of attitude you find yourself then solving the wrong problems. These people will stop expressing those negative attitudes, you see.

    They will smile more regularly at you. They will even marry you and go to bed with you, sleep with you, but you will note that the effects of racism, the effects of poverty and all of these other things will continue. But not only do they continue, they increase.
