    EBOOK or KINDLE The Street What an ending I didn’t see it coming but it did feel like Lutie Johnson the main character was teetering on the edge since page one and I guess they pushed her too many times I feel like The Street relates so much so to the here and now It’s 70 years later and has many things changed? Not really This book was an excercise in how not to lose your mind; but it’s so much than that It’s about how microaggressions an

Don t talk to me about Germans They re only doing the same thing in Europe that s been done in this country since the time it started Since a grand jury ruled that Daniel Pantaleo should not be indicted for the murder of Eric Garner a murder committed via an unlawful chokehold that was deemed a homicide and published as a Youtube video a day later I ve been doing some reconfiguring with the help of myriad Tumblr posts cause fuck mainstream media I ll pay heed instead to a post describing the systematic invalidation of the concept of collective trauma suffered by black people as a result of racism by a high school teacher a teacher who went on right after to academically delight in the woeful tale of a white boy traumatized by his mother killing a chicken in front of him I ll keep in mind that every authoritative text written on philosophy and psychology and epistemology by a white man sometimes poor and sometimes not straight but usually with very little variation in characteristics is simply that The text of a white man In this world of ours such texts taken as universal and standard and everything vaguely sadistic in them excused because of the times result in a US twenty dollar bill with a genocidal pasty bag of dicks plastered in the circle of honor Cause y know he was a president He could have killed her easy and no one would even have rapped on the door and he wondered what went on inside these other apartments to make their occupants so incurious I may perhaps be mislabeling this piece as Dickensian because it s been a long time since I last read him and the author doesn t rhapsodize or stereotype or flounder around for the Redemption of the Little White Straight Man but what I remember most about his reputation is he being a crusader for the poor Crusader s a horrible term for it when you look at the historical context but nonetheless I will compare Petry and this book of hers to him because it is on par with Native Son in terms of the socioeconomic ramifications of anti blackness and even better because black women get consideration than a girlfriend in a refrigerator It s not as good as Beloved but it is evident that this work published in 1944 was a powerful forebearer The glitter on the screen did nothing to dispel her sense of panic She kept thinking it had nothing to do with her because there were no dirty little rooms no narrow crowded streets no children with police records no worries about rent and gas bills If all thinking by white women gets clumped together under the simplistic and far too often dismissive feminist label and thinking by non white men gets the civil rightsOriental kicker thinking by non white women is barely a poof in the hallowed halls of Endless Reference This work is not Ain t I a Woman Black Women and Feminism but it s a damn good place of fiction to start Much like Larsen Petry cuts to the bone with a few sentences and puts the rest of the works that take at least ten pages to parse their point to neverending shame Anti blackness from the perspective of a white woman Check Black male misgogyny Check White male misogynyracism Check Black woman internalized misogyny Check White person sadismsuicide as an inevitable result of their indoctrinated shutting off of empathy in favor of money Check check a myriad of multifarious characters each getting their psychological due in their various places as accorded by anti blackness US North New York New York Harlem style Streets like the one she lived on were no accident They were the North s lynch mobs she thought bitterly the method the big cities used to keep Negroes in their place Don t forget the economic imbalance that will exist so long as capitalists need the homeless to feel better about themselves I d sell anything I ve got without stopping to think about it twice because I don t intend to learn how to crawl again Violence and looting don t solve anything unless you worship the US military and choose to ignore that all your beautiful holidays and tree lighting is built on centuries of one country razing another in pursuit of said loot She held the paper in her hand for a long time trying to follow the reasoning by which that thin ragged boy had become in the eyes of a reporter a burly Negro And she decided that it all depended on where you sat how these things looked If you looked at them from inside the framework of a fat weekly salary and you thought of colored people as naturally criminal then you didn t really see what any Negro looked like You couldn t because the Negro was never an individual He was a threat or an animal or a curse or a blight or a joke PS This book doesn t mince around the idea of sex and has one of the best endings ever if your incentive for reading tends towards the literary than the humanitarian

read & download The Street Ann Petry Û 7 read The Street characters é 107 Rk The Street was Ann Petry's first novel a beloved bestseller with than a million copies in print Its haunting tale still resonates today. Lutie Johnson does everything right She works hard struggles to save puts her son first tries to protect him from loneliness discomfort and the influences of the street full of poor struggling folks While working for a white family as a live in housekeeper she absorbed the philosophy the men espoused wealth is available to anyone who works for it in this country She studies gets a respectable white collar job and keeps studying so that she can some day get a piddling promotion She isn t color struck She takes responsibility for her own success or lack of it keeps healthy and has an innate store of self respect If anyone can pull herself up by her bootstraps it s Lutie and for me the most vivid takeaway from this story is that bootstraps theory is a barbed cruel trapFor Lutie her family and all tge residents of the street one weighty materialisation of this trap is RENT Living in London I can relate but the opening of the book in which Lutie contemplates the horrible living conditions she is about to pay such an extortionate price for showed how much uglier the word looms for people trying to make the frayed ends of small salaries and low wages meet In such grinding poverty conditions the motivation to seek any kind of hustle is intense and affects Lutie s eight year old son who tries to take up shining shoes like other boys on the streetLutie s description of the division between her and white people as a wall erected by them not her but visible to her not them reminded me of Sara Ahmed s work she often writes about walls that obstruct some bodies and not others Lutie is baffled by the fact that white women are worried she might have an affair with one of their thin unhappy husbands she wondered why they had the idea that all colored girls were whores The looks full of contempt and assumptions from white people make her never feel human until she reaches Harlem At the time formal segregation confined black people to the neighbourhood though of course white people own the properties rented out so expensively as well as the shops They also take the jobs one of the voices Petry takes on is that of a disinterested lazy white teacher who works in a Harlem school full of hate for her charges and so ashamed to work in such poor conditions that she keeps her workplace secret Lutie also sees the neighbourhood as a bad environment but her attitudes contrast with the white teacher s who sees black people inherently as the problem Lutie sees clearly what is wrong there are no jobs for black men so the women go out to work in low paying domestic service and the men become idle Why is there no outside work for the men and why don t they take on the burden of house work and child care Simple white supremacist capitalist patriarchyTo broaden the perspective the other main characters include the superintendant of the building Lutie moves into who has become malevolent and obsessive from spending too much time living in cellars and a middle aged domestic service worker who now that she has found a way of living rent free will do almost anything to maintain the situation These characters have highly developed idiosyncratic voices Petry calls them startlingly into being Mrs Hedges who sits watching the street and makes an adeuate living from the sex workers who make use of her apartment is a complex interesting character seen very differently by Lutie the super and other people on the street She is kind and protective but at times reveals an exploitative attitude to other people that is reflected in her unfeeling eyesLutie s attractiveness to black men who are meant to be helping her because they have taken on positions that place this obligation on them and white men who are gatekeepers to all the exit routes from her oppressive situation has a huge weight in the narrative At times I felt this was too important but I started to uestion my white feminist perspective and to think that this was deliberate not just a prop to make the plot work but important for two reasons firstly because the attractiveness of black women is maligned by white supremacist media and advertising which positions the white woman as the ideal of attractiveness and femininity Here Lutie is considered beautiful by everyone and desired by black and white men belying the trope Secondly white supremacist capitalist patriarchy defines how Lutie s attractiveness will function men long to own her body and constantly leverage their different forms of power over her to try to fulfil their desire The reflection she wondered why they had the idea that all colored girls were whores becomes increasingly ironic as the constantly arising pressures created by the actions or complicity of those whites pushing Lutie into sex work stack upAs well as being of great social and political import this novel was nearly impossible for me to put down despite its simple plot I just had to know what would happen next If I were writing the blurb I d call it compulsive and compulsory The Royal House of Cacciatore Bundle in print Its haunting tale still resonates today.

I haven t felt so mindfucked from an ending since Bend Sinister Yet whereas Nabokov does it simply because he can in The Street it serves to underline the message and I would say message rather than plot because Petry was a political writer and this novel certainly is that besides being a wonderful piece of fiction Some books shouldn t have happy endings life in 1940 s Harlem as a single mother didn t often have a happy ending and some types of books should just completely break you because maybe it wouldn t get through otherwise In Petry s novel the characters are not simply good or bad they are just people acting according to the natural logical conseuences of their conditions the result of genocidal economics in action Yet even the character Junto who comes to embody the crudest kind of predatory capitalism much in the way Ben Harrison embodies dickface trolling is still a pawn in the socialeconomic conditions of which he is largely unaware I see Petry often compared to Richard Wright and there is certainly a compassion to be made with this novel and Native Son yet for me as much as I did understand what Wright was saying and the significance of his protagonist becoming a murderer on a rational level I just never really bought it as a narrative Petry I buy and based on this novel I say she is far talented than Wright best Wright storyThe Man Who Lived Underground The paradox of Lutie s very resistance to the pressures of the unrelenting ontological angst of living in such dehumanizing conditions leading her to commit a horrendous act is illuminated in a way Wright never captured My only complaint of this novel is the noticeable lack of unicorns
