“If we generic gay and lesbian whitefolks set as our movement's goal being assimilated into American culture, getting 'our piece of the pie,' we ignore or deny the reality that gay and lesbian people of color will never be assimilated in the same way within this system because it was constituted to exclude them.”
Mab Segrest

Alice Walker
“On entering a place where animals are bred, my first thoughts are always about enslavement. Force. Captivity.”
Alice Walker

Jamaica Kincaid
“Of course, I now see that good behaviour is the proper posture of the weak, of children.”
Jamaica Kincaid, A Small Place

Amy Poehler
“If you don't eat pussy, keep walking.”
Amy Poehler

Alice Walker
“I tell you, Chickadee
I am afraid of people
Who cannot cry
Tears left unshed
Turn to poison
In the ducts
Ask the next soldier you see
Enjoying a massacre
If this is not so.

People who do not cry
Are victims
Of soul mutilation
Paid for in Marlboros
And trucks.

Violence does not work
Except for the man
Who pays your salary
Who knows
If you could still weep
You would not take the job.”
Alice Walker
