“Mon grand-pere Boana, qui avait la chance de ne pas ressembler a un Rom, avait pu faire un peu d'etudes dans sa jeunesse. Un privilege pour un Rom! Il a donc rapidement pu trouver un emploi a la ville.”
Anina Ciuciu, Mândră să fiu rromă

Laura Kipnis
“So exiled have even basic questions of freedom become from the political vocabulary that they sound musty and ridiculous, and vulnerable to the ultimate badge of shame-'That's so 60's!'-the entire decade having been mocked so effectively that social protest seems outlandish and 'so last century,' just another style excess like love beads and Nehru jackets. No, rebellion won't pose a problem for this social order.”
Laura Kipnis, Against Love: A Polemic
