Personal Quote:

In the history of black people, those who have been prophetic have either been killed or bought off and co-opted. And now we live in the age of the sellout, no matter what color. I argue that we witnessed the re-niggerization of the black professional class. They've got power, assets and prosperity, but they're still intimidated. They're concerned with their careers rather than their callings. See more »
