Why sit ye here and die?
This immediately made me think that I've one too many years of Catholic school as I made the connection to the book of Kings as soon as I read the first sentence. I find it interesting she uses this passage as I am fairly certain that it is talking about lepers in the bible. The comparison between how African Americans and Lepers are treated is a very bold statement in and of itself. It seems she is referencing the the rejection that came from physical appearance.
