Color Purple Essay
Mohja Kahf, author of My Grandmother Washes Her Feet in the Sink of the Bathroom at Sears, discusses religion in her poem. Her grandmother, a muslim, and the other people in the store, presumably Christians (based on the fact that the mid-west is highly populated with Christians), have conflicting beliefs:
"You can't do that," one of the women protests,
turning to me, "Tell her she can't do that."
"We wash our feet five times a day,"
my grandmother declares hotly in Arabic.
