Stokely Carmichael, setting shit straight and placing responsibility for the “race problem” squarely where it belongs.
The very language in regards to civil rights in this country is embedded in white supremacist ideology. How many of us have been duped into accepting the fallacious notion that whites have “given” blacks rights? The notion itself presupposes black inferiority while failing to acknowledge the root problem: white racism. Change the language, change your mind.

Anyone in town for #CHSH interested in going to this tomorrow? I have 3 passes for Saturday up for grabs. $39 each face value, but any offers will be entertained.
