You say we black folk are thin-skinned about race ... You argue that all of us are too politically correct ... And yet you barely tolerate any challenge to your thinking on race. I say thinking, my friends, though that is being kind. Many of you hardly think of race. You shield yourselves from what you don't want to understand. You reveal your brute strength in one contemptible display of power after the next, and yet you claim that we reap benefits by playing the victim.
-- Michael Eric Dyson, Tears We Cannot Stop, p. 95
