  • Sister Souljah: You’re making a moral appeal to a country that doesn’t have a moral conscience. The question becomes: that when white people feel serious and angry and upset about abortion, they come out in the thousands up to the millions to say, “This is what we believe about abortion.”
  • Where is the white outcry against white racism that murders African people all around this entire globe? It doesn’t exist. So who are these “white good people”? I want to meet them! I want to see them!
  • Cornell West: I know a few, but Sista…
  • Sister Souljah: A few is not enough-
  • Cornell West: But that might be all we can get
  • Sister Souljah: Oh no, no. And guess what? I don’t work with “all I can get” […] listen you have to have some confidence in the power of African people amongst ourselves to establish a foundation[…] And you (Cornell West) may have a program, Mr. Brown may have a program. But what we got to talk about is an American government that traps millions of African people who don’t go to your program, don’t go to Brown’s program. Millions of African people not only here but all around the world. And if we are not honest enough to say who are our friends, who are our enemies, to know what a friend is, to know what an enemy is. We will constantly be trying to get into people’s parties, to shake our butts with them, to get them to like us. And that’s not the question, the question is: What can we build amongst ourselves to secure ourselves from our enemies so that we can be able to survive into the future.

A 20-year-old girl from South Africa known as Sarah “Saartjie” Baartman was recruited to work in a Paris zoo because of a genetic characteristic known as steatopygia – protuberant buttocks and elongated labia. Whites went to the zoo to look at her buttocks and at other naked Black women with the same shape.
Gawking with desire: since forever and today.

This is the shit that I was talking about. Black women have a history of being treated like animals and if we dare say some shit about it we get shut down and told we’re either over reacting or lying for attention.
