“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

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

“We should not be post-racial: seeking to get beyond the uplifting meanings and edifying registers of blackness. Rather, we should be post-racist: moving beyond cultural fascism and vicious narratives of racial privilege and superiority that tear at the fabric of "e pluribus unum.”
Michael Eric Dyson, April 4, 1968: Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Death and How It Changed America
