Quote of the Day

This [Negro] problem, which (white Americans) invented in order to safeguard their purity, has made of them criminals and monsters, and it is destroying them.  And this, not from anything blacks may or may not be doing but because of the role of a guilty and constricted white imagination as assigned to the blacks.

-- James Baldwin, I Am Not Your Negro, p. 58
