Quotes by Michael Eric Dyson  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Justice is what love sounds like when it speaks in public.”
Michael Eric Dyson, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America

“Charity is no substitute for justice. If we never challenge a social order that allows some to accumulate wealth--even if they decide to help the less fortunate--while others are short-changed, then even acts of kindness end up supporting unjust arrangements. We must never ignore the injustices that make charity necessary, or the inequalities that make it possible. ”
Michael Eric Dyson, Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster

“The failure to see color only benefits white America. A world without color is a world without racial debt.”
Michael Eric Dyson, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America
