Whites were the winners, blacks were the losers, we wrote the history books, and they didn't feature.

Whites walk on eggshells for fear of being called racists, while many blacks are preoccupied with protecting the image of black students, rather than protecting their future by telling the blunt truth. It is understandable that some people are concerned about image, about what in private life might be expressed as: What will the neighbors think? But, when your children are dying, you don't worry about what the neighbors think.

Whites saying 'make America white again' is like millionaires saying 'make the wealthy rich again.

Whites know never tell blacks what you really think and what you really feel because you risk being seen as a racist. And the result of that is that to a degree, we as blacks live in a bubble.

Whiteness in a racist, corporate-controlled society is like having the image of an American Express Cardstamped on one's face: immediately you are universally accepted.

photo of author Richard Meier with quote

Whiteness allows the architectural ideas to be understood most clearly -- the difference between opacity and transparency, solid and void, structure and surface. These things are more perceptible in a white environment. They have a greater clarity.

Whitehead reacted strongly against the idea of God as a cosmic tyrant, one who brings about everything.

photo of author Stephen Sondheim with quote

White. A blank page or canvas. So many possibilities.

photo of author Michael Eric Dyson with quote

White-on-white crime is a devastation in America like so-called black-on-black crime. It's not black or white-on-white crime. It's proximity murder.

Shelby Steele quote: White-on-black shootings evoke America's history of racism and so carry an iconic payload of menace. Black-on-black shootings carry no such payload, although they are truly menacing to the black community. They evoke only despair.- black text on quotes background

White-on-black shootings evoke America's history of racism and so carry an iconic payload of menace. Black-on-black shootings carry no such payload, although they are truly menacing to the black community. They evoke only despair.

White-hot needles stabbed through his eyes into his head, into his brain: a new environment for the information viruses, where they replicated, forming snarls of complex logic that entangled him, clanking mechanisms that pursued him from one thought to another, down corridors of memory and forgotten rooms of days.
