Maya Angelou said, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them; the first time.

Toni Morrison said, "The function, the very serious function of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being. Somebody says you have no language and you spend twenty years proving that you do. Somebody says your head isn’t shaped properly so you have scientists working on the fact that it is. Somebody says you have no art, so you dredge that up. Somebody says you have no kingdoms, so you dredge that up. None of this is necessary. There will always be one more thing.”

Eric Ward's article "Skin in the Game: How Antisemitism Animates White Nationalism" investigates the ways in which antisemitism intersects with racism in White Nationalism.

Lilla Watson is credited with the quote "If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together." Some report she prefers to credit authorship for the phrase to Australian Aboriginal Rights groups.
