Last quote by Angela Flournoy

In 'F.U.B.U.' [Solange] Knowles doesn't just eschew the white gaze for the sake of creating her art; she performs that rejection in song, to pull her black listeners close. It's a rhetorical invitation for black folks to grab a chair and settle in for real talk about lives like theirs. To her white listeners (who are listening, after all), she offers a tongue-in-cheek indictment as consolation: 'Don't feel bad if you can't sing along / Just be glad you got the whole wide world.
