Random quote of the day:

“The world changes. The world is completely different now from when I was growing up. Back then, you didn’t say things like they say now, out loud, about race and things. But that’s just progress. When are we going to find out that we’re all the same—we’re all absolutely, without a doubt, the same? It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or straight or gay.”

—Johnny Mathis, “Johnny Mathis on the Long Road to Gay Rights,” Billboard.com, 12/12/16

“You [men] have been having our rights so long, that you think, like a slave-holder, that you own us. I know that it is hard for one who has held the reins for so long to give up; it cuts like a knife. It will feel all the better when it closes up again.”

―Sojourner Truth, Address to the First Annual Meeting of the American Equal Rights Association, May 9, 1867
