|127. Afrocentricity is simple. If you examine the phenomena concerning
African people, you must give them agency. If you don't, you're imposing

|128. Afrocentrism, a contemporary species of black nationalism, is a gallant
but misguided attempt to define an African identity in a white society perceived
to be hostile.... It is misguided because--out of fear of cultural hybridization

gay men, and lesbians, and a reluctance to link race to the common good--it
reinforces the narrow discussions about race.|
Cornel West, 1954- Philosopher and Activist
|129. How old would you be if you didn't know how old you was?|
Satchel Paige, 1900?-1982 Baseball star
