“So that we’re dealing in times in which we have to be very clear, and we have to have plain speech. Frank speech, and we have to have people who are willing to put bodies on the line.
This is the kind of moment in which we live.
This is not a moment for the lukewarm and the faint hearted and the half-truths and the attempts to rationalize something that they think is so complicated when it’s very clear, and yet we have to do it in such a way that John Coltrane’s ‘Love Supreme’ is at the center.
You’ve got to be full of rage because you hate the injustice, but you can’t be hating people.”
― Cornel West, Dec.1, 2016, Democracy Now!
