racism


Random quote of the day:

“I don’t have to really be in the ‘60s to connect to it. Every time I try to hail a cab in New York, and they pass me and pick up the white person [who’s] farther back than I am, then I get a dose of it. Or when they don’t want to take you to Harlem or Brooklyn. I grew up with that.”

—Queen Latifah, NPR, October 17, 2009

Random quote of the day:

“The work of anti-racism can only take place inside each individual soul, where we all try to grow into better people. There is no national tonic or instant cure.”

Random quote of the day:

“I’m not a victim. I refuse to be one….If you can only be tall because someone’s on their knees, then you have a serious problem. And my feeling is white people have a very, very serious problem and they should start thinking about what they can do about it. Take me out of it.”

Random quote of the day:

“The thought of someone believing you deserve fewer rights because of who you are is depressing. But then you realize that, by doing what you do every day, you prove to them you are unstoppable. They can spend their time trying to pass laws to take away your rights and silence your voice, but all you have to do is live your lives right in their faces, and it proves you simply cannot be stopped.”

Random quote of the day:

“I actually appreciate folks who are looking for ways to address racism in their industries by deleting episodes, renaming things, changing vocabulary, etc. But friends, if you’re looking for racism in your industry look at how employees are hired and treated. That’s where it is.”

Random quote of the day:

“I never doubted my ability, but when you hear all your life you’re inferior, it makes you wonder if the other guys have something you’ve never seen before. If they do, I’m still looking for it.”

Random quote of the day:

“Systemic racism can have an ending. Police brutality can have an ending. Economic repression of black and brown people can have an ending. A movement without action is a movement standing still. To those who say they care: Move more than your mouth. Move your feet to the polls, and use your hands to vote.”

Random quote of the day:

“Racism comes in many different forms. Sometimes it’s subtle, and sometimes it’s overt. Sometimes it’s violent, and sometimes it’s harmless, but it’s definitely here. It’s something that I think we’re all guilty of, and we just have to make sure that we deal with our own personal racism in the right way.”
