Text Quotes
Americans aren’t accepting of black humor, it’s terrible  (Black Americans Quotes) Americans are inclined to see the world and foreign affairs in black and white  (Black Americans Quotes) I think this is what people misunderstand about Martin Luther King saying to love your enemies. They think he was just using this silly little phrase, but what he meant was that as Black Americans we need to let our anger go, because holding on to it we hold ourselves down. We oppress ourselves by holding on to anger.  (Black Americans Quotes) In terms of viewing the world in a certain way, when you’re talking about monsters and talking about the metaphor that you’re trying to create, as Black Americans, you oft times stand apart and you have to look at things from the inside out or the outside in.  (Black Americans Quotes) A very hurting thing for Black Americans - to feel that we can’t love our enemies.

The line isn’t Give me education or give me death.  (Black Americans Quotes) I think anyone that comes to Nigeria has to offer value. What value are you bringing? There are Black Americans here. I think we’ve moved beyond that Africans vs. African Americans. They may have more issues with us than we do with them  (Black Americans Quotes) The welfare state has done to Black Americans what slavery (and Jim Crow and racism) could not have done. . .break up the black family.

Historically, from the 1870s on. . . 75-90 percent of black kids lived in two-parent families  (Black Americans Quotes) You have to use what you have in order to get what you need and the people can not be rich unless somebody is rich. The Hip-Hop generation has carried more people with it than any other enterprise Black Americans have had  (Black Americans Quotes) I think black Americans expect too much from individual black Americans in terms of changing the status quo.  (Black Americans Quotes) As soon as you say that there is a community called, let’s say, black Americans, you’ve immediately created a boundary line - who’s in that group, who’s outside that group.  (Black Americans Quotes) The injustices endured by black Americans at the hands of their own government have no parallel in our history, not only during the period of slavery but also in the Jim Crow era that followed.  (Black Americans Quotes) Law enforcement’s biased view of the Irish lives on in the nickname we still use for the vehicles we use to transport groups of prisoners. It is, after all, the ‘paddy wagon.’ The Irish had tough times, but little compares to the experience on our soil of black Americans.  (Black Americans Quotes) If his presidency is to represent the full power of the idea that black Americans are just like everyone else - fully human and fully capable of intellect, courage and patriotism - then Barack Obama has to be subject to the same rough and tumble of political criticism experienced by his predecessors.  (Black Americans Quotes) I think Americans such as Leviathan have done a lot to expand the sonic palette of black metal  (Black Americans Quotes) It did occur to me that certainly African-Americans are not underserved in picture books, but those books are almost all about specifically black experiences.  (Black Americans Quotes) Americans have their issues with skin colour, even within the black community, with light and dark skin; it’s crazy - but no one’s oblivious to it.  (Black Americans Quotes) Yippies, Hippies, Yahoos, Black Panthers, lions and tigers alike - I would swap the whole damn zoo for the kind of young Americans I saw in Vietnam.  (Black Americans Quotes) Black Americans should be given credit for finding probably the perfect weapon; the weapon of the song. And that song continues. Most holocausts don’t, so they have this bitterness left over. The phenomenon of the world, as far as Black Americans are considered, is that we are not a bitter people  (Black Americans Quotes) I think all in all, one thing a lot of plays seem to be saying is that we need to, as black Americans, to make a connection with our past in order to determine the kind of future we’re going to have. In other words, we simply need to know who we are in relation to our historical presence in America  (Black Americans Quotes) The closest Indian analogy to the position of black Americans is that of the Dalits - formerly called ‘Untouchables,’ the outcastes who for millennia suffered humiliating discrimination and oppression.  (Black Americans Quotes) The black situation has changed. They finally realized they’re Americans  (Black Americans Quotes) I fully recognize and appreciate the many substantial contributions of black Americans and other minorities to the creation and preservation and development of our great nation  (Black Americans Quotes) Black Americans make up 10 or 11% of the population, but they account now for something of 40 to 45% of all the abortions. This is a privileged position that I’m not sure anyone in their right mind would aspire to  (Black Americans Quotes) This was the first Memorial Day [Monday, May 1st, 1865]. African Americans invented Memorial Day in Charleston, South Carolina.
