Quotes by Ijeoma Oluo  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“When we identify where our privilege intersects with somebody else's oppression, we'll find our opportunities to make real change.”
Ijeoma Oluo, So You Want to Talk About Race

“Being privileged doesn't mean that you are always wrong and people without privilege are always right. It means that there is a good chance you are missing a few very important pieces of the puzzle.”
Ijeoma Oluo, So You Want to Talk About Race

“To refuse to listen to someone’s cries for justice and equality until the request comes in a language you feel comfortable with is a way of asserting your dominance over them in the situation.”
Ijeoma Oluo, So You Want to Talk About Race
