“Oh, I didn’t have a reaction. I think that some things are not worth reacting to.

Some things are just inconsequential.”

When speaking on white racism, she said: “We have to remember that it’s in this period, in this presidency, that we have had people who parade publicly and they are very open about being white supremacists and it is important to remember that people have died, that a young woman was mowed to death by somebody who is a white supremacist.”

On the topic of women, Chimamanda Adichie said:

“I’m very excited about the number of women who are becoming politically active.

I find it very exciting because I think it’s long overdue quite frankly, but also because it’s wonderful to know that women can now run as individuals rather than running as ‘The Woman Candidate.’

In the end, my idea of feminism is one in which people can be individuals.

So, I find it very exciting and I’m kind of looking forward to what will happen.”
