Michael Eric Dyson
“The status quo always favors neutrality which in truth is never neutral at all but supports those who stand against change.”
Michael Eric Dyson, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America

Michael Eric Dyson
“Empathy must be cultivated. The practice of empathy means taking a moment to imagine how you might behave if you were in our positions. Do not tell us how we should act if we were you; imagine how you would act if you were us. Imagine living in a society where your white skin marks you for disgust, hate, and fear. Imagine that for many moments. Only when you see black folks as we are, and image yourselves as we have to live our lives, only then will the suffering stop, the hurt cease, the pain go away.”
Michael Eric Dyson, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America

Johann Hari

All these different theories, with their radical implications—why would governments want to fund those?”
Johann Hari, Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs

Michael Eric Dyson
“Trump is missing the point when he says that Kaepernick should “find a country that works better for him.” Instead, Kaepernick believes so deeply in this country that he is willing to offer correction rather than abandon the nation—and to donate a million dollars in support of racial justice causes.”
