QUOTATIONS OF TOVARISCH MICHELLE OBAMA

She is the First Lady of Grievance, the puppet master, the power behind the power, the "man behind the curtain" so to speak, if you will, the person who says "jump" and we say "how high".

Another presidential campaign and another socialist co-presidency looms. What is it about liberal metrosexual girly-men and their dragon-lady wives?

Angry, radical feminist activist, arrogant, entitled, "oppressed", hates whitey, hates America, Princeton educated, earned a law degree from Harvard, Vice President for Community Affairs at University of Chicago Hospitals where she was compensated $121,910 in 2004, $316,962 in 2005....and there is still beaucoup pain in Michelle Obama's world. Lots of stuff that needs fixin'. And she wants to share it all with us and dump it all on us.

When you boil it all down, what comes out of the Obama camp is still just warmed over 1930's populism and half-baked Marxist "theology" packaged in a feel-good huggy blanket.

This is an evolving page...she just can't keep her mouth shut!!

Michelle's Boot Camps For Radicals

From Investor's Business Daily - September 04, 2008 :

Democrats' reintroduction of militant Michelle Obama in Denver was supposed to show her softer side. But it only highlighted a radical part of her resume: Public Allies.

Barack Obama was a founding member of the board of Public Allies in 1992, resigning before his wife became executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies in 1993. Obama plans to use the nonprofit group, which he features on his campaign Web site, as the model for a national service corps. He calls his Orwellian program, "Universal Voluntary Public Service."

Big Brother had nothing on the Obamas. They plan to herd American youth into government-funded reeducation camps where they'll be brainwashed into thinking America is a racist, oppressive place in need of "social change."

The pitch Public Allies makes on its Web site doesn't seem all that radical. It promises to place young adults (18-30) in paid one-year "community leadership" positions with nonprofit or government agencies. They'll also be required to attend weekly training workshops and three retreats.

In exchange, they'll get a monthly stipend of up to $1,800, plus paid health and child care. They also get a post-service education award of $4,725 that can be used to pay off past student loans or fund future education.

But its real mission is to radicalize American youth and use them to bring about "social change" through threats, pressure, tension and confrontation ­ the tactics used by the father of community organizing, Saul "The Red" Alinsky.

"Our alumni are more than twice as likely as 18-34 year olds to . . . engage in protest activities," Public Allies boasts in a document found with its tax filings. It has already deployed an army of 2,200 community organizers like Obama to agitate for "justice" and "equality" in his hometown of Chicago and other U.S. cities, including Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York, Phoenix, Pittsburgh and Washington. "I get to practice being an activist," and get paid for it, gushed Cincinnati recruit Amy Vincent.

Public Allies promotes "diversity and inclusion," a program paper says. More than 70% of its recruits are "people of color." When they're not protesting, they're staffing AIDS clinics, handing out condoms, bailing criminals out of jail and helping illegal aliens and the homeless obtain food stamps and other welfare.

Public Allies brags that more than 80% of graduates have continued working in nonprofit or government jobs. It's training the "next generation of nonprofit leaders" ­ future "social entrepreneurs."

The Obamas discourage work in the private sector. "Don't go into corporate America," Michelle has exhorted youth. "Work for the community. Be social workers." Shun the "money culture," Barack added. "Individual salvation depends on collective salvation."

"If you commit to serving your community," he pledged in his Denver acceptance speech, "we will make sure you can afford a college education." So, go through government to go to college, and then go back into government.

Many of today's youth find the pitch attractive. "I may spend the rest of my life trying to create social movement," said Brian Coovert of the Cincinnati chapter. "There is always going to be work to do. Until we have a perfect country, I'll have a job."

Not all the recruits appreciate the PC indoctrination. "It was too touchy-feely," said Nelly Nieblas, 29, of the 2005 Los Angeles class. "It's a lot of talk about race, a lot of talk about sexism, a lot of talk about homophobia, talk about -isms and phobias."

One of those -isms is "heterosexism," which a Public Allies training seminar in Chicago describes as a negative byproduct of "capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and male-dominated privilege."

The government now funds about half of Public Allies' expenses through Clinton's AmeriCorps. Obama wants to fully fund it and expand it into a national program that some see costing $500 billion. "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as the military, he said.

The gall of it: The Obamas want to create a boot camp for radicals who hate the military ­ and stick American taxpayers with the bill.


Michelle, the DNC Convention and Saul Alinsky

'Girl Next Door' Michelle Obama showed up at the DNC Convention to tell us how she's just like you and me. She trotted out the kids, talked about her dad, and told us how great Barack is. During the speech she made the following curious statements:

"Barack stood up that day, and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about "The world as it is" and "The world as it should be." And he said that all too often, we accept the distance between the two, and settle for the world as it is - even when it doesn't reflect our values and aspirations. But he reminded us that we know what our world should look like. We know what fairness and justice and opportunity look like. And he urged us to believe in ourselves - to find the strength within ourselves to strive for the world as it should be." "All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won't do - that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be."

The world as it is....the world as it should be. Where does this come from...not the mouth of Obama.

Excerpted From Gateway Pundit:

http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/08/figures-michelle-obama-quotes-lines.html

What to make of Michelle Obama's use the terms, "The world as it is" and "The world as it should be?" From whence do they originate? Try Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals. In last night's speech, Michelle Obama said something that peeked my curiousity. She said:

"Barack stood up that day," talking about a visit to Chicago neighborhoods, "and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about "The world as it is" and "The world as it should be..."

And, "All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won't do - that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be."

Here's an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals:

"The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive - but real - allies of the Haves…The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means... The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be."


Obama, his wife, Rev. Wright, William Ayers and the rest of the radical Chicago scum that crawled out of a sewer are hard core leftists bent on the destruction of the very system that has made this country great.

As this is being published the Democratic party has nominated for President a person who consorts with a known terrorist who bombed the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol and murdered policemen. Obama will have the highest security clearances.

They get their marching orders from their spiritual mentor, Saul Alinsky.

Michelle on Wearing Many Hats

Another Michelle Obama speech...another lecture on how horrible everything is. The Great Depression is right around the corner. This time instead of that constantly shifting bar we are treated to a diatribe on how hard it is for a mother to raise a family. To listen to this drivel one get's the impression that Michelle is the only one who has triumphed over adversity. Honestly folks, it's the same speech as the "Moving The Bar" speech with single mothers substituted for college students and families. Not much else to say here...Michelle's same old same old...shared sacrifice...level playing fields...socialist populism...our country sucks...here are a few choice depressing tidbits:

Excerpted from Michelle Obama's "Many Different Hats" speech in Kansas City. Jul 12, 2008 . Read the whole slog, if you dare...

I know that there's so many people here like me who wear so many different hats. And I've done that all my life. I am not just the wife of a presidential candidate, which is like eight hats, but I am a professional, still I had a job, another job that, but I'm a daughter, a sister, a best friend, but the roll that I cherish most is, is the role of mom. That role means so much to me.

And today one income, let alone the kind of income that would come from a man like my father, just doesn't cut it anymore. [voice: "That's right."] What we're finding in this country is that working families are finding that two people have to be working to make ends meet. And I don't how people do it when there's only one parent, a single parent in the household. But people are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet. And that's not even including the kind of jobs that you do once we get off of work.

And then as those bills pile up, and the tasks seem to get harder and harder, we all have the job of late night worrier. And like many of you I have wished in, in those late hours that I had this magic machine that create more time in the day that would allow me to get a little more sleep at night.

When jobs are drying up in states and cities all over this country young families have to move away from grandma and great aunts. And they're left to fend for themselves. So there's so much more that happens when an economy crumbles. It's not just the loss of jobs, but its the break down of those informal support structures.


Obviously Michelle was not happy with her "makeover" on The View. So it's back to strident militant Michelle. No wonder Barack went to the Middle East and Europe without her. Anyone would need a break from this constant negativity.

Michelle...we've learned a couple thinks about you from your many speeches....you're a bore, a drag, a one-note samba, presumptuous and a total buzzkill.

Michelle on the $600 rebate - "Let Them Eat Cake"

Let them eat cake!” said Marie-Antoinette, queen to Louis XVI, when informed that the poor had no bread.

It seems our fav Tovarisch 'Comrade' Michelle has her own twist on Queen Marie regarding those poor unfortunate subjects whose income is low enough to qualify for the $600 government rebate. Speaking to an audience of mostly African-American women in Michigan she stated:

"You're getting $600 - what can you do with that? Not to be ungrateful or anything, but maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn't pay down every bill every month," she said. "The short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good, and it may even feel good that first month when you get that check, and then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings."

Yeah..."Let 'em buy earrings!" Of course all the libs got in a twist when Phil Gramm arrogantly stated the economic downturn is mostly in our heads.

Maybe Barack and Michelle should put their money where their collectivist mouths are and help a couple of families directly with some bills instead of forcing the general population to help out through "press-gang" style income redistribution.

Just a thought here...did she wash and disinfect after being forced to mix with the working class stiffs?

Michelle on 'The View' -- The Extreme Makeover Begins

Angry Strident Militant Michelle just wasn't selling. People were [shock] critizing her comments. Barack said "lay off my wife!" Didn't work. She was out there making policy speeches. She was fair game.

The answer...put her on The View. Friendly territory, softball questions, an adoring audience and Goldberg/Behar to run interference.

She bought a new sundress for the occasion at White House/Black Market. Women swooned...they must have this dress. The NY Times gushed "Her performance on Wednesday was polished and all but flawless..."

So no more Angry Michelle, no more Holes In Our Souls, no more Shifting and Raising the bar, no more talk of student loans, no more telling recent college grads to go into soical work and forego the big payday.

Michelle is sooooo proud of her country now.

Yes the extreme makeover and marketing of our fav angry black women has begun. She's now "warm and fuzzy good time Michelle", just the typical Harvard/Princeton girl next door.

No quotes or comments here. Just this question...are you dumb enough to buy it?

Michelle on the Endless Struggle and that Constantly Shifting Bar

Excerpted from Michelle's depressing 'Moving The Bar' stump speech. May 2nd, 2008 . Read the whole slog, if you dare...

It was freezing cold, North Carolina, like 10 below? And the announcement was outside. I know you all don't understand that, but yes, people came out and stood to watch what they believed would be a historic journey. And it has been all of that and more, and we were very excited. We took that crowd to be an omen, sort of a sign, that even before anybody knew Barack, 16,000 people showed up. So we were excited.

But then right after that happened, as things started building up, everyone said this race is over. They said there was no way that Barack Obama could win. They said there was an inevitable candidate. And right now, I know people are talking about how Barack is the frontrunner. That's a new title for us, because if you recall, Barack has been the underdog, and as far as I'm concerned, will continue to be the underdog until he is sitting in the Oval Office.

But once he raised all that money, then all of a sudden, money didn't matter. It didn't count. His opponents said well, we're all going to raise money. So the next test was whether or not Barack could build the kind of political organization that can compete, because against again, the inevitable candidate, had been building relationships and an organization for decades. And they said there was no way that in such a short period of time, this guy nobody every knew could build a political organization that could compete. But then, Barack tried something different. He started relying on regular folks

But after it was built, then all of a sudden, organization didn't matter. But we're all going to build a political organization, was what they said. The true test, they said, was now Iowa. Iowa was going to be the measure, because you remember Iowa, remember, remember Iowa?

But see, after that happened, then what happened? Iowa wasn't important. All of a sudden, they said well, Iowa's not important because it's just a caucus. It wasn't a primary was the argument, and that was different. So I'm scratching my head, I'm like okay, so, here we go. So now what was important was the national numbers.

So then we go into South Carolina. We were excited about South Carolina. But then they said don't be so excited about South Carolina, because South Carolina doesn't count. They said it doesn't count for Barack Obama, because Barack Obama was supposed to win South Carolina.

So then, we roll into Super Tuesday. Again, the race was supposed to be over on Super Tuesday. It was. But what happened on that day? Barack racked up so many victories. And since that time, he's continued to build on his victories. When was the last time we've seen a candidate who was able to win states like Utah and Georgia, Missouri and Illinois, Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Wisconsin? And yes, Barack won the Texas caucuses.

Raise the money? Not enough. Build an organization? Not enough. Win a whole bunch of states? Not the right states. You got to win certain states. So the bar has been shifting and moving in this race, but the irony is, the sad irony is that that's exactly what's happening to most Americans in this country. The bar is shifting and moving on people all the time. And folks are struggling like never before, working harder than ever, believing that their hard work will lead to some reward, some payoff. But what they find is that they get there and the bar has changed, things are different, wasn't enough. So you have to work even harder.

And see what happens when you live in a nation where the vast majority of Americans are struggling every day to reach an ever-shifting and moving bar, then what happens in that nation is that people do become isolated. They do live in a level of division, because see, when you're that busy struggling all the time, which most people that you know and I know are, that you don't have time to get to know your neighbor. You don't have time to reach out and have conversations, to share stories. In fact, you feel very alone in your struggle, because you feel that somehow, it must be your fault that you're struggling so hard. Everybody else must be doing okay. I must be doing something wrong, so you hide.

And when you live in a nation where people are struggling every day to reach an ever-shifting and moving bar, then what happens in that kind of nation is that people are afraid, because when your world's not right, no matter how hard you work, then you become afraid of everyone and everything, because you don't know who's fault it is, why you can't get a handle on life, why you can't secure a better future for your kids. And the problem with fear is that it cuts us off. Fear is the worst enemy. It cuts us off from one another and our own families, and our communities, and it has certainly cut us off from the rest of the world. It's like fear creates this veil of impossibility, and it is hanging over all of our heads, and we spend more time now in this nation talking about what we can't do, what won't work, what can't change.

But we're not where we need to be. And that, we know. We can disagree on a whole bunch of things, but we're not where we need to be for our future. And a lot of that has to do with that struggle we talked about. See, because when you're struggling, you don't have time to look at the future. You don't really have time to think this thing through.

As you already know, I'm the product of a working-class background. My father was a city worker all of his life.

We went to the public schools around the corner, the neighborhood public schools. And I also say that because I want people, when they see me, to see what an investment in public education can look like, because I think sometimes we forget just how critical public education can be, and what an investment is required...

But the truth is, right now, that little nugget of a dream that was my life is getting further and further out of reach for most Americans because of that bar constantly moving. You know, jobs like my father had those blue collar jobs where you got pensions, vacation, all that, they're dwindling. They're drying up. They're disappearing, going overseas. And if you're lucky enough to have a job, nine times out of ten, your salary's not keeping up with the cost of living.

The bar is moving and shifting on them, and it's moving and it's shifting with regard to education, because we all know that No Child Left Behind is not doing what it needs to do for children in this country. So now on top of all the other worries that families have...

And then you've got the other half of young people who were like me and Barack, who too, out loans to pay for our college. So yeah, we have Ivy League degrees, but they cost us a whole lot of money to get. And see, what we did was what we thought we were supposed to do. We got those fancy degrees, and then we left corporate America, and went to work in the community. And with every job we took, we made less money. My mother told us we were crazy, but we thought we were doing the right thing. And I do believe we were. But where we found ourselves, in a position like most young couples, with our PhD's and JD's and MPh's and WLMOP's, all those wonderful degrees, all mired in debt.


Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean folks aren't out to get you...and who's that ubiquitous "they" that is out to get you? The NY Times/Washington Post/LA Times? ABC, NBC, CBS? Morning chat shows? Afternoon chat shows? The View? Not likely. B. Houssein Obama has been getting a pass from them for the last year and a half.

Oh, you meant Hillary.

And you still use "yeah" and "me and Barack" too much. And your syntax and grammar are found wanting as well. It won't make you "just folks" and it definitley won't get you that blue-collar vote that you, Barack and your latte-sipping "egg-head" intellectual constituency despise either. Too bad that million-dollar Ivy League education didn't give you more of an appreciation for the English language.

Ready to slash your wrists yet? Maybe we should add the "Angriest Phoniest Woman in the World" or "Best Imitation of Rev. Wright" award to the Nevilles. Jeez, listening to her you would think it was the Great Depression all over again. We are going to need a bar and a round of doubles after reading this.

Michelle on Elitism

There’s a lot of people talking about elitism and all of that. Yeah, I went to Princeton and Harvard, but the lens through which I see the world is the lens that I grew up with. I am the product of a working-class upbringing. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago in a working-class community.

So when people talk about this elitist stuff, I say, 'You couldn't possibly know anything about me.' So let me give you a better sense of who me and Barack are and why we're doing this.

I am a product of a working-class background, There were no miracles in my life. The thing that I saw that many of us still see is hard work and sacrifice. I am one of those folks who grew up in that struggle. That is the lens through which I see the world.

Barack was the product of a single parent, teenage mother. His mother was 18 years old, an 18-year old white woman raising a black kid in the 60s.

Now when was the last time you've seen a presidential candidate for President of the United States that is just a few years out of student debt?. Barack worked for years on the ground in those communities, helping folks find their voice and tackle the power structure. … There is no other candidate in this race who can boast of making that kind of choice with their life. There is no one else.

Folks are struggling like never before."We shouldn't be surprised that people are cynical. There is a level of cynicism that comes when you feel like no matter how hard you work, no matter how much you do, you never catch up and you certainly can't get ahead. So you don't believe that politics can do anything for you, you lose hope. Naturally, you fold your arms in disgust of the process."

They feel lonely and oftentimes they're embarrassed by their struggle because they feel like somehow they must be doing something wrong.


Yeah...me and Barack. They are just like us 'cause we use bad grammar too.

Michelle on How Mean Americans Are

Michelle Obama and the politics of candor.
By Lauren Collins
March 10, 2008
http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2008/03/10/080310fa_fact_collins

Excerpted from the article...

Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we're a divided country, we're a country that is "just downright mean," we are "guided by fear," we're a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. "We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day," she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. "Folks are just jammed up, and it's gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I'm young. Forty-four!"

From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to "finagle" to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.) Health care is out of reach ("Let me tell you, don't get sick in America"), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive, and even if you can figure out a way to go to college you won't be able to recoup the cost of the degree in many of the professions for which you needed it in the first place. "You're looking at a young couple that's just a few years out of debt," Obama said. "See, because, we went to those good schools, and we didn't have trust funds. I'm still waiting for Barack's trust fund. Especially after I heard that Dick Cheney was s'posed to be a relative or something. Give us something here!"

First Ladies have traditionally gravitated toward happy topics like roadside flower beds, so it comes as a surprise that Obama's speech is such an unrelenting downer. Obama acknowledged to me that some advisers have lobbied her to take a sunnier tone, with little success. "For me," she said, "you can talk about policies and plans and experience and all that. We usually get bogged down in that in a Presidential campaign, over the stuff that I think doesn't matter. . . . I mean, I guess I could go into Barack's policies and rattle them off. But that's what he's for." In Cheraw, Obama belittled the idea that the Clinton years were ones of opportunity and prosperity: "The life that I'm talking about that most people are living has gotten progressively worse since I was a little girl. . . . So if you want to pretend like there was some point over the last couple of decades when your lives were easy, I want to meet you!"

She frequently tells her audiences, "I don't care where I am, the first question is 'How are you managing it all? How are you holding up?'


In Obama-land prosperity is a zero-sum game. Somebody got rich on the back of some other poor schlep. For every successful person there is a person who suffers because of that success. There must/will be restitution in Obama-land.

Michelle on Student Loans and Corporate America

"The salaries don't keep up with the cost of paying off the debt, so you're in your 40s, still paying off your debt at a time when you have to save for your kids."

"Barack and I were in that position. The only reason we're not in that position is that Barack wrote two best-selling books… It was like Jack and his magic beans. But up until a few years ago, we were struggling to figure out how we would save for our kids."

"We left corporate America, which is a lot of what we're asking young people to do. Don't go into corporate America. You know, become teachers. Work for the community. Be social workers. Be a nurse. Those are the careers that we need, and we're encouraging our young people to do that. But if you make that choice, as we did, to move out of the money-making industry into the helping industry, then your salaries respond and many of our bright stars are going into corporate law or hedge-fund management."


Just make sure you write that best seller first before you doom your earning potential in some "socially responsible" feel-good career.

She wants to control the next generation of folks by killing the entreprenurial spirit and keeping people stuck in low wage-slave 'self-esteem' jobs and, thus, dependant on government.

Stop whining and complaining about how tough it is out there for an Ivy Leaguer. No one held a gun to your collective heads and said "you must leverage $40,000 each per year on an Ivy League education." You did it to yourselves. You both could have gone to a state school for much less money and still become a hospital administrator before striking out to save the whales (and the world).

Michelle on the 'Hole In Our Soul'

Feb. 3, 2008 at UCLA

In 2008, we are still a nation that is too divided. We live in isolation, and because of that isolation, we fear one another. We don't know our neighbors, we don't talk, we believe our pain is our own. We don't realize that the struggles and challenges of all of us are the same. We are too isolated. And we are still a nation that is still too cynical. We look at it as "them" and "they" as opposed to "us". We don't engage because we are still too cynical. ...

Americans are not in debt because they live frivolously but because someone got sick. Even with insurance, the deductibles and the premiums are so high that people are still putting medications and treatments on credit cards. And they can't get out from under. I could go on and on, but this is how we're living, people, in 2008.

And things have gotten progressively worse throughout my lifetime, through Democratic and Republican administrations, it hasn't gotten better for regular folks. ....

We have lost the understanding that in a democracy, we have a mutual obligation to one another -- that we cannot measure the greatness of our society by the strongest and richest of us, but we have to measure our greatness by the least of these. That we have to compromise and sacrifice for one another in order to get things done. That is why I am here, because Barack Obama is the only person in this who understands that. That before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation."


The notion that only Barack Houssein Obama can save our souls is patently offensive, arrogant and ludicrous. Our government doesn't exist to save our souls; it exists to ensure domestic tranquility and provide for the common defense. Nothing more.

Michelle on Pride

On the campaign trail in Milwaukee, Feb 18, 2008

"What we have learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback and let me tell you something, For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I have seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues. It has made me proud."


What more can we say to that? A true victocrat!!

Michelle on Thinking and Feeling

Michelle Obama Solidifies Her Role in the Election
By MONICA LANGLEY
February 11, 2008
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB120269904120358135.html?mod=googlenews_wsj

Excerpted from the article...

On a conference call to prepare for a recent debate, Barack Obama brainstormed with his top advisers on the fine points of his positions. Michelle Obama had dialed in to listen, but finally couldn't stay silent any longer.

"Barack," she interjected, "Feel -- don't think!" Telling her husband his "over-thinking" during past debates had tripped him up with rival Hillary Clinton, she said: "Don't get caught in the weeds. Be visceral. Use your heart -- and your head."


Are you feeling me Barack?!?!?

Michelle on the 'White Oppressors'

"Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community"-Senior Thesis at Princeton

"I have found that at Princeton, no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my white professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don't belong," Obama wrote.

"Regardless of the circumstances under which I interact with whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be black first and a student second."

"[My experience] will likely lead to my further integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant."

"It is possible that Black individuals either chose to or felt pressured to come together . . . because of the belief that Blacks must join in solidarity to combat a White oppressor."


Get out the white sheets...we are all klansmen now...
