A full examination of the ancestry of those who are referred to in the newspapers as blacks and African Americans must include Europe and Native America  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) I’m beginning to believe that Killer Illiteracy ought to rank near heart disease and cancer as one of the leading causes of deathamong Americans. What you don’t know can indeed hurt you, and so those who can neither read nor write lead miserable lives, like Richard Wright’s character, Bigger Thomas, born dead with no past or future  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) The last publicized center of American writing was Manhattan. Its writers became known as the New York Intellectuals. With important connections to publishing, and universities, with access to the major book reviews, they were able to pose as the vanguard of American culture when they were so obsessed with the two Joes--McCarthy and Stalin--that they were to produce only two artists, Saul Bellow and Philip Roth, who left town  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) As for [Amiri] Baraka, he and I have disagreements. I mean, he becomes a demagogue when there’s an audience. He’s a nice guy in private. I mean I like the guy; he’s a terrific writer. I’ve published two of his books. Baraka is one of these fundamentalists who is prone to idol worship  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) There would be no Rock and Roll without Ike Turner, James Brown, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Allen Toussaint, etc. Fake ghetto books and fake ghetto music. Elvis Presley, whom they idol, is merely a karaoke makeover of James Brown and Chuck Berry  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) Another California study counted 30,000 substance abusers who are pregnant are White woman. So, The Wire paints the picture of drug addiction, drug dealing, and drug abuse as being a specifically a Black issue  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) I’ve always wondered why European politicians as a group seemed brighter than American politicians as a group. Maybe it’s becausemany American politicians have the race issue to fall back on. They become lazy, suspicious of innovative ideas, and as a result American institutions atrophy  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) I’m sure that a previous generation of Jews who published radical newspapers and journals would be critical of [David] Simon’s projects. These were left wingers who suffered casualties in some of bloodiest strikes in American history  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) I think there are fundamentalists all over the world. I think all religions have fundamentalists who have different interpretations of scriptures that are very vague.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) I walked out on American Gangster: this evil piece of dreck. Defenders of this junk say that these movies give Black actors jobs. So did Birth of a Nation.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) My work holds up the mirror to hypocrisy, which puts me in a tradition of American writing that reaches back to Nathaniel Hawthorne.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) My generation of writers has been prone to premature illness and death, especially the women. When Black male writers meet it’s like a session of the American Diabetic Association.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) Given all of the anti-Muslim propaganda that’s being disseminated by The American Nazi media, you have to be careful. It can stress you out.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) Constance L. Rice, co-director of the Los Angeles of the Advancement Project, told the Times that Seltzer might have been influenced by David Simon’s fake ghetto series, The Wire. It figures. Isn’t this sexism? Isn’t this a double standard? They’re hard on this young woman for her fake ghetto book, yet praise these White guys for theirs. So there’s a big market in downing Black men.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) Unfortunately, in the world today, we have dogmatic people entering into politics. I don’t think the two mix.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) My stuff is direct. Critics have compared my writing style with boxing all the way back to 1978 when my first book of essays appeared: it was compared to Muhammad Ali’s style.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) For generations comedians have made jokes about Scots-Irish in the South inter-breeding. I am my own grandpa and all that stuff; you know, because they all were marrying their first cousins.  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) Americans are fickle. And what constitutes the enemy is always changing. Believe it or not, at one time Blacks were the favored model minority over Asian Americans  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) I wasn’t part of any sixties movement. I’m skeptical of movements. I’m part of the times that I’m in  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) My work holds up the mirror to hypocrisy, which puts me in a tradition of American writing that reaches back to Nathaniel Hawthorne  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) I guess when it comes to this privileged White racist feminist movement they respect someone who treats them rough: John Wayne. Frank Sinatra. Phillip Roth  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) David Simon goes to the Jewish Weekly and said he’s made all this money, but he can’t enjoy it because of criticism by people like Ishmael Reed  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) I think Black intellectuals see too deeply. That’s the problem. It’s a cause of anxiety, because we see things differently  (Ishmael Reed Quotes) My generation of writers has been prone to premature illness and death, especially the women.
