Heather  McGhee
“There is no question that the financial crisis hurt people of color first and worst. And yet the majority of the people it damaged were white. This is the dynamic we’ve seen over and over again throughout our country’s history, from the drained public pools, to the shuttered public schools, to the overgrown yards of vacant homes.”
Heather McGhee, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together

“America has lied to her white children for centuries, offering them songs about freedom instead of the liberation of truth.”
Heather McGhee, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together

Heather  McGhee
“Fundamentally, we have to ask ourselves, how is it fair and how is it smart to price a degree out of reach for the working class just as that degree became the price of entry into the middle class? And how is it fair or smart to create a new source of debt for a generation when that debt makes it harder for us to achieve the hallmarks of middle-class security: a house, marriage, and retirement savings? There is neither fairness nor wisdom in this system, only self-sabotage.”

“Wanting someone to stand for the national anthem rather than stand up for justice means loving the symbol more than what it symbolizes.”
Heather McGhee, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together

“For when a nation founded on the belief in racial hierarchy truly rejects that belief then and only then will we have discovered a new world. That is our destiny. To make it manifest, we must challenge ourselves to live our lives in solidarity across color, origin, and class. We must demand changes to the rules in order to disrupt the very notion that those who have more money are worth more in our democracy and our economy. Since this country’s founding, we have not allowed our diversity to be our superpower and the result is that the United States is not more than the sum of its disparate parts. But it could be. And if it were, all of us would prosper. In short, we must emerge from this crisis in our republic with a new birth of freedom. Rooted in the knowledge that we are so much more, when the we in we the people is not some of us, but all of us. We are greater than and greater for the sum of us.”
