Paula S Rothenberg Quotes

"Can people of color be racist?" I reply, "The answer depends on your definition of racism." If one defines racism as racial prejudice, the answer is yes. People of color can and do have racial prejudices. However, if one defines racism as a system of advantage based on race, the answer is no. People of color are not racist because they do not systematically benefit from racism. And equally important, there is no systematic cultural and institutional support or sanction for the racial bigotry of people of color. In my view, reserving the term racist only for behaviors committed by whites in the context of a white-dominated society is a way of acknowledging the ever-present power differential afforded whites by the culture and institutions that make up the system of advantage and continue to reinforce notions of white superiority. (Using the same logic, I reserve the word sexist for men. Though women can and do have gender-based prejudices, only men systematically benefit from sexism.)"

Quotes About Motionless

"I go to the window, I spot a fly under the curtain, I corner it in a muslin trap and move a murderous forefinger toward it. This moment is not in the program, its something apart, timeless, incomparable, motionless, nothing will come of it this evening or later . . . Mankind is asleep. . . . Alone and without a future in a stagnant moment, a child is asking murder for strong sensations. Since Im refused a mans destiny, Ill be the destiny of a fly. I dont rush matters, Im letting it have time enough to become aware of the giant bending over it. I move my finger forward, the fly bursts, Im foiled! Good God, I shouldnt have killed it! It was the only being in all creation that feared me; I no longer mean anything to anyone. I, the insecticide, take the victims place and become an insect myself. Im a fly, Ive always been one. This time Ive touched bottom." - Author: Jean Paul Sartre

"One year I went as a pirate, but from then on I went as a hobo. Its a word you dont hear anymore. Along with tramp, its been replaced by homeless person, which isnt the same thing.

Being at liberty, unencumbered by bills and mortgages, better suited his drinking schedule, and so he found shelter wherever he could, never a bum, but something much less threatening, a figure of merriment, almost." - Author: David Sedaris
