There is so much history of this racist violence that simply to bring one person to justice is not going to disturb the whole racist edifice  (Angela Davis Quotes) Not only the brothers on the street but the middle class brothers are also identifying with the gangster rappers because of the extent to which this music circulates.

I think we have to seek to create coalitional strategies that go beyond racial lines. We need to bring black communities, Chicano communities, Puerto Rican communities, Asian American communities together.  (Angela Davis Quotes) The campaign against the death penalty has been - while a powerful campaign, its participants have been those who attend all of the vigils, a relatively small number of people.  (Angela Davis Quotes) I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change...I’m changing the things I cannot accept  (Angela Davis Quotes) Our leaders were assassinated, one of the things I was reading today was - 28 Panthers were killed by the police but 300 Black Panthers were killed by other Panthers just within - internecine warfare.
