Hold On, My People.

"Not only was black beautiful, it was also humane, soulful, earthy and spiritual. By contrast to whiteness it was not materialistic, militaristic, or mercenary. The black comm. was grounded in communal love instead of the austere profit motive. We were a natural people in tune with natural forces while whites, out of some spiritual sickness, needed to dominate and control others."

Shelby Steele, The Content Of Our Character

(on exposure to greater freedom that came with integration & why that caused us a WORLD of problems.)

Erykah Badu - My People - Erykah Badu
