Malcolm X

Charles Bukowski
When the soldier returns from the wars, even though he has white hair, he very soon finds a young wife.

And sown the earth with flowers.

Colin Callender
The women used the music to get their men to relate to them better: “talk to me, tell me what’s on your mind.” Men used the music to get the girls in the mood to make love.

Barry White
I sometimes think the contemporary white American is more culturally deprived than the Indian.

Lee Daniels
The White House begun airing their TV commercials to re-elect the president, and the John Kerry campaign is condemning his use of 9/11 in the ads. He said, it is unconscionable to use the tragic memory of a war in order to get elected, unless of course, it’s the Vietnam War.
Jay Leno
In a world of increasing grey areas, we are becoming more and more entrenched in black and white positions.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Most of our country’s serious problems can be laid at the feet of Congress and the White House and not at capitalism.
Walter E. Williams
As an African American child growing up in the segregated South, I was told, one way or another, almost every day of my life, that I wasn’t as good as a white child.
Coretta Scott King
When we are thirsty, we drink the white waters of the pool, the sweetness of our mournful childhood.
Georg Trakl
This world is white no longer, and it will never be white again.
James A. Baldwin
I’ve always loved the drama and the creating of a role and performance and all that comes with that, but I then also kind of like to have just the white picket fence life if that makes sense.
Nicole Kidman
I think it’s easier, I really do, because of not having that similar history, so that’s why I think two-thirds of these mixed congregations are either white with Asian and Hispanic, or black with Asian and Hispanic.
Michael Emerson
Experience unveils too late the snares laid for youth; it is the white frost which discovers the spider’s web when the flies are no longer there to be caught.
Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
White is the color of decomposition. White is also no color. White is nothing. In photography, the paper is white, next comes the light, which is also white, then the shadow is created, the apparition.
Dieter Appelt
Im married to a white man, and then my daughter came out looking like the whitest white child with blonde hair and blue eyes. And Im like, Omigosh, now what am I going to do? She has my moms features and is lighter than my husband. And my boy is browner than I am. Brown eyes and really tan.
Karyn Parsons
We are redefining and we are restating our Socialism in terms of the scientific revolution … The Britain that is going to be forged in the white heat of this revolution will be no place for restrictive practices or outdated methods on either side of industry.
Harold Wilson
A 1990 study by the (liberal) Progressive Policy Institute showed that, after controlling for single motherhood, the difference in black and white crime rates disappeared.
Ann Coulter
The new racism, like God, works in mysterious ways and is quite effective in maintaining white privilege. For example, instead of saying as they used to say during the Jim Crow era that they do not want us as neighbors, they say things nowadays such as ‘I am concerned about crime, property values and schools.’
Eduardo Bonilla-Silva
Human nature is not black and white but black and grey.
Graham Greene
This problem with illegal immigration is nothing new. In fact, the Indians had a special name for it. They called it “white people.”
Jay Leno
All the other books ask, ‘What’s it like?’ What was World War II like for the young kid at Normandy, or what is work like for a woman having a job for the first time in her life? What’s it like to be black or white?
Studs Terkel
I love Yves Saint Laurent and Giambattista Valli and Givenchy and I get given quite a lot, but perhaps nothing is as wonderful as the white fake leather trench coat I got when I was 15.
Natalia Vodianova
To illustrate to the Indians the advantages the white race had in the telephone I divided a body of warriors from Sitting Bull’s camp into two parties and had them talk to each other over the telephone line.
Nelson A. Miles
At the White House, they caught another fence jumper earlier today. It was Obama trying to get out.
David Letterman
Anybody who gets into bed and turns out the lights the first night in the White House probably feels a little bit of a start, where you say, “Goodness … ”
Barack Obama
This is how most stories end in the hospital. Not with crash carts and sirens and electric shocks to the chest, but with an empty room, a crisp white bed, silence.
Jacob M. Appel
I’d like to be played as a child by Natalie Wood. I’d have some romantic scenes as Audrey Hepburn and have gritty black-and-white scenes as Patricia Neal.
Gloria Steinem
Spring goeth all in white, / Crowned with milk-white may: / In fleecy flocks of light / O’er heaven the white clouds stray.
Robert Bridges
I once owned a really, really ugly pair of white leather boots. They were so bad. It was back in the ’80s! It was just a really tacky fashion choice when I was in middle school, and I thought it was cool. I’m really embarrassed.
Jordana Brewster
Everything is very black and white for me. I don’t really like playing mind games.
Zayn Malik
When I portray Stabler, I have to shave every day and cut my hair every week! And then, I really like to change my looks for films like ‘Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle’ where I have the pleasure of playing the ugliest man in the world.
Christopher Meloni
It’s good to play something that’s black and white, and a guy that sees right and wrong. I’ve never played a character like that.
David Lyons
There are more people who are not straight, white males going to shows.
Kathleen Hanna
Nobody black or white who really believes in democracy can stand aside now; everybody’s got to stand up and be counted.
Lena Horne
Life is easier in black and white. It’s the ambiguity of a world defined in grays that has stripped me of my confidence and left me powerless.
Amy Plum
Today my passion is still black and white. Today if I have an array of cameras in front of me the one I would reach for that I would feel most comfortable with would be a 4 X 5 View camera. I was once working in a sort of soft light situation.
John Sexton
The world we live in is made up of polar opposites, black/white, male/female, night/day, and a human being who possesses both masculine and feminine – vulnerability and strength – is intriguing to us, whether they be a singer or actor or dancer, intrigues us, because THAT Is who we really are.
I use a special tool. I make it myself; very sharp steel point and a handle like a pencil. For me it is a pencil. Maybe I have a special talent, a feeling you might say that lets me control it, to express my ideas as though I were sketching black on white.
Ugo Mochi
Even though it’s called Music Of Black Origin, it’s not just music for black people. Music is for everybody. I think it’s good that black music is acknowledged, and it’s open for lots of artists, including white artists who have been inspired by black musical heritage.
Alesha Dixon
The white paintings came first; my silent piece came later.
John Cage
It was never just about painting everything white, I set out to create comfortable spaces – visually comfortable spaces. My mind always feels a little scrambled, so being in simple rooms helps me to think straight.
John Pawson
People are threatened by me. Rich white, rich blacks, it doesn’t matter.
Dennis Rodman
Feminist pedagogy can only be liberatory if it is truly revolutionary because the mechanisms of appropriation within white supremacist, capitalist patriarchy are able to co-opt with tremendous ease that which merely appears radical or subversive
Bell Hooks
The new year begins in a snow-storm of white vows.
George William Curtis
Most people I know of that mix have a real ability to be in a room with anyone, black or white.
Halle Berry
That’s why for Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society the colors are black and white. There are no gray issues. Life is black and it’s white. There’s no in-between.
Zakk Wylde
President Obama had lunch with Republican leaders at the White House today and had to do without salt, pepper and butter. Not for dietary reasons. The Republicans refused to pass anything.
Jay Leno
No matter what these terrorists do, I refuse to be terrorized. All this requires is just a few alterations in our day to day lives. For example, my first instinct when I receive an envelope full of white powder… is to snort it! I just won’t do that this time!
Margaret Cho
It does seem like between the groundbreaking writing of Edmund White’s generation and the work of younger gay writers in their twenties and thirties there is a kind of gap.
Garth Greenwell
In a way, all recorded music is reduced to the same level, no matter what it is. You find it in the store, you put it on and, “Oh, that’s not cool. That’s gangsta rap. That’s white supremacist punk.” But in a way, the content is removed from the intention of the people that made it. That’s the commercial level of music.
Eyvind Kang
I never see that prettiest thing- A cherry bough gone white with Spring- But what I think, “How gay ‘twould be To hang me from a flowering tree.
Dorothy Parker
I believe strongly that most people in this country U.S. don’t want a totalitarian state…And when conservatives say, “Get the government out of my backyard,” the reality is, you can’t say that and put somebody in the White House who’s gonna be in your business.
Whoopi Goldberg
AP promoted me to the White House beat because I knew Clinton, his family, friends, and staff better than anybody in the national press corps. Those contacts helped me break a few stories and get my career in Washington jump-started.
Ron Fournier
You know when you make popcorn there are always those fluffy white kernels that are fun and good to eat but there are also always those burnt, black kernels that don’t pop. You know why they don’t pop? Because they have integrity.
Marc Maron
Sometimes I look at it [Valley of Violence] and go, “How did we do that?” But it’s a credit to Ethan [Hawke], he had done White Fang, so Ethan is like, “Oh God, that’s right.”
Ti West
I would that we were, my beloved, white birds on the foam of the sea!
We tire of the flame of the meteor, before it can fadeand flee;
And the flame of the blue star of twilight, hung low on the rim of the sky,
Has awaked in our hearts, my beloved, a sadness that may not die.
William Butler Yeats
When I was saying, ‘White people go to hell,’ I never had trouble finding a publisher. But when I say, ‘Black and white unite and fight, destroy capitalism,’ then you suddenly become unreasonable.
Amiri Baraka
The Senate is the big prize. Until recently, Democrats felt confident they could get the four seats they needed to take back control if [Hillary] Clinton is in the White House and Vice President Tim Kaine held the tie-breaking vote.
Mara Liasson
Fain would I kiss my Julia’s dainty leg, Which is as white and hairless as an egg.
Robert Herrick
a white person who claims to have no impediment of vision in this country is not, I think, telling the whole truth. And when it comes to race relations, not telling the whole truth about the fog one inhabits slows down the work of groping forward.
Naomi Wolf
I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpent’s tongue – my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence.
Gloria E. AnzaldГєa
This is not my fault! Any ideas?” “You don’t have a white flag, do you?
Andy McDermott
Rock’n’roll is nothing but Boogie Woogie with stuff on top of it. And if you’re black, they name it rhythm’n’blues, and if you’re white, they name it rock’n’roll. So, I don’t give a… You know.
Ike Turner
Bees blew like cake-crumbs through the golden air, white butterflies like sugared wafers, and when it wasn’t raining a diamond dust took over which veiled and yet magnified all things
Laurie Lee
I sit cross-legged on the rock The valleys and streams are cold and damp Sitting quietly is beautiful The cliffs are lost in mist and fog I rest happily in this place At dusk the tree shadows are low I look into my mind A white lotus emerges from the dark mud
Oh, yesterday, that one, we all cry out. Oh, that one! How rich and possible everything was! How ripe, ready, lavish, and filled with excitement–how hopeful we were on those summer days, under the clean, white racing clouds. Oh, yesterday!
Mary Oliver
The greatest miracle Christianity has achieved in America is that the Black man in white Christian hands has not grown violent. It is a miracle that twenty-two million Black people have not risen up against their oppressors in which they would have been justified by all moral criteria and even by the democratic traditions.
Malcolm X
I don’t think paper will go away. I do believe that the value of paper will change, and Xerox is working on changing that value. Consider a color page. Actual life is in color, but you keep reproducing it in black and white. You remove value. It’s a bad thing to do.
Ursula Burns
The Family of Man is more than 3 billion strong. It lives in more than 100 nations. Most of its members are not white. Most of them are not Christians. Most of them know nothing about free enterprise or due process of law or the Australian ballot.
John F. Kennedy
Maybe I was young and ‘cute’ (after all, I was only twenty then), but I’ve learned over the years that when you put white lab coats on chemists, they all look alike!
Gertrude B. Elion
I’ve worked out of a series of no’s. No to exquisite light, no to apparent compositions, no to the seduction of poses or narrative. And all these no’s force me to the yes. I have a white background. I have the person I’m interested in and the thing that happens between us.
Richard Avedon
All peoples are struggling to blast a way through the industrial monopoly of races and nations, but the Negro as a whole has failed to grasp its true significance and seems to delight in filling only that place created for him by the white man.
Marcus Garvey
Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear,
And he shows them pearly white.
Just a jackknife has Macheath, dear,
And he keeps them out of sight.
Kurt Weill
Jennifer Palmieri going after Kellyanne Conway and the first sound bite is a discussion of Steve Bannon and what a reprobate the Clinton people think he is and how dare you have somebody like that on your team. How dare you campaign on white supremacism. Jennifer Palmieri starts it off.
Rush Limbaugh
I’m into ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Shaun of the Dead,’ obviously, and I’ve seen all the Romero movies. I am a classic zombie queen. And I love the White Walkers on ‘Game of Thrones.’ Weirdly, it wasn’t until pretty late in life that I found my entry point into horror films.
Anna Kendrick
I want you to hear from God. God already spoke to me what I’m going to write out. You’re going to write your checks to Paula White Ministries. If God tells you to give $12.99, do it. Whatever the Holy Spirit speaks to you. If you need to give by credit card, do so.
Paula White
No one has been barred on account of his race from fighting or dying for America, there are no white or colored signs on the foxholes or graveyards of battle.
John F. Kennedy
I had intended to have gone into Africa incognito. But the fact that a white man, even an American, was about to enter Africa was soon known all over Zanzibar.
Henry Morton Stanley
I didnt write Snow White for any class, but I got bitten by the screenwriting bug and wrote a couple of scripts in my spare time instead of going to keg parties or something.
Evan Daugherty
Michelle Obama has gone from political skeptic to political partner to a woman with a White House agenda of her own, and an approval rating higher than the president’s.
Jodi Kantor
The key to solving the social problems of our age is to abolish the white race. Until that task is accomplished, even partial reform will prove elusive, because white influence permeates every issue in U.S. society, whether domestic or foreign.
Noel Ignatiev
Secretary Clinton has dramatically changed the face of U.S. foreign policy globally for the good. But I wish she had been unleashed more by the White House.
Richard Armitage
Sometimes she wore Levi’s with white-suede fringe sewn down the legs and a feathered Indian headdress, sometimes old fifties’ taffeta dresses covered with poetry written in glitter, or dresses made of kids’ sheets printed with pink piglets or Disney characters.
Francesca Lia Block
If half-black Barack Obama had decided years ago to call himself white – which his genes certainly entitled him to do – his story would have carried very different meaning. If millions of part-black people had followed him into whiteness, then the N.A.A.C.P. would be in true crisis.
Eric Liu
You notice patterns. White guests often are mortified – that word again – when they learn their ancestors owned slaves. But I’ve never had a black guest who was upset to learn about white ancestry that probably involved forced sexual relations.
Henry Louis Gates
For those colours which you wish to be beautiful, always first prepare a pure white ground.
Leonardo da Vinci
The filth under the white snow, the sunne discovers.
George Herbert
Whether slavery shall go into Nebraska, or other new territories, is not a matter of exclusive concern to the people who may go there. The whole nation is interested that the best use shall be made of these territories. We want them for the homes of free white people.
Abraham Lincoln
Anti-Semitism hits me on the head: I am enraged, I am bled white by an appalling battle, I am deprived of the possibility of being man. I cannot disassociate myself from the future that is proposed for my brother.
Frantz Fanon
Jimmy Ford is the baddest white man on the planet.
Sly Stone
People say satire is dead. It’s not dead; it’s alive and living in the White House.
Robin Williams
I’m really not an avowed heterosexual. I’m no more proud of it than of being white or tall.
George Weinberg
News makes things black and white. Documentary filmmaking should do the opposite.
Robert Greene
I mean in the South African case, many of those who were part of death squads would have been respectable members of their white community, people who went to church on Sunday, every Sunday.
Desmond Tutu
Each one could be a Jesus mild,
Each one has been a little child,
A little child with laughing look,
A lovely white unwritten book;
A book that God will take, my friend,
As each goes out at journey’s end.
John Masefield
As Olafsson showed me, White can win… It’s hard to believe. I stayed up all night analysing, finally convicing myself, and, incidentally, learning a lot about Rook and Pawn endings in the process.
Bobby Fischer
Workers, black and white, need some kind of international affirmative action to protect them from unfair competition with unorganized or slave labor abroad and unfair competition with robots at home.
Jesse Jackson
You may not know it, but at the far end of despair, there is a white clearing where one is almost happy.
Joan Baez
Too often a story is examined through biased eyes, without a sensitivity for everyone who forged it. It’s seen from the point of view of the great white savior, and rarely is the perspective of the slave a part.
Jeffrey Wright
The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
John Boyle O’Reilly
By disgracing and degrading the presidency of the United States, by fleeing the White House like a diseased cur, Richard Nixon broke the heart of the American Dream.
Hunter S. Thompson
I have a very, very great balance sheet, so great that when I did the Old Post Office on Pennsylvania Avenue, the United States government, because of my balance sheet, which they actually know very well, chose me to do the Old Post Office, between the White House and Congress, chose me to do the Old Post Office.
Donald Trump
I eat only white foods: eggs, sugar, grated bones, the fat of dead animals; veal, salt, coconut, chicken cooked in white water; fruit mold, rice, turnips; camphorated sausage, dough, cheese (white), cotton salad, and certain fish (skinless).
Erik Satie
I got married to Chris Sarandon, who was a graduate student, and he knew everything at that point, I thought, because he was older. He introduced me to poetry and black-and-white movies.
Susan Sarandon
We were developing a machine that used egg white, heat and sugar to synthesize methanol when a power surge caused an implosion. Owens was meringued. By the time we chipped him out the poor chap had expired.
Jasper Fforde
Getting away from a white or light colored tuxedo shirt is always a little dangerous. Certain staples shouldn’t be mixed with. Light pink or blue is not bad, but again, you’re just breaking from a classic.
Paul Feig
I have never seen white people who would sit, who would, who would approach a solution to their own problems nonviolently or passively. It’s only when they are so-called “fighting for the rights of Negroes” that they nonviolently, passively, and lovingly, you know, approach the situation.
Malcolm X
I am, and ever will be, a white-socks, pocket-protector, nerdy engineer – born under the second law of thermodynamics, steeped in steam tables, in love with free-body diagrams, transformed by Laplace, and propelled by compressible flow.
Neil Armstrong
I much prefer playing the bad guys. I think they are always the most interesting characters. I liken it to painting: if you’re playing the good guy, you get three colors: red, white and blue. But if you’re the bad guy, you get the whole palette.
Ronny Cox
White man and black man, jew and gentile, protestant and catholic, will be able to hold hands and sing in the words of the ancient negro spiritual, “Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty! We are free at last!”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
We have heard stories about white men who make the powerful guns and the strong drinks and took slaves away across the seas, but no one thought the stories were true.
Chinua Achebe
The worst kind of novel is one that blames other people for the racial problem in order to make the reader feel good about himself. As if it’s only rich white people or Republicans or conservatives who have this disease.
George Pelecanos
I cannot forget a conversation that I had with an elderly couple from the tribe. They asked me whether I would kill them after I had finished. When I asked them why they asked that, they replied, Because you white men always do!
Roland Joffe
You’re as white as a nun’s buttock. Are you all right?
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
I am thankful, however, that some of our white brothers have grasped the meaning of this social revolution and committed themselves to it. They are still all too small in quantity, but they are big in quality.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
First Family on the CW is about the president and his family living in the White House.
To go to the White House is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In fact, the building is not that big.
Hugh Bonneville
My personal opinion is that you can’t be racist towards white people. You can be prejudiced about them, but being prejudiced isn’t an illegal act, whereas being racist can be.
Jo Brand
I could only relax when there was just one tiny white last spot left. I could see more clearly. I could grasp the shape of the picture again… The pictures are alive because of the white remnant, the almost concealment.
Arnulf Rainer
That was a brave and principled thing for Ecuador to do [give me asylum application]. Now we have the U.S. election [campaign], the Ecuadorian election is in February next year, and you have the White House feeling the political heat as a result of the true information that we have been publishing.
Julian Assange
After white’s reply to 1.e4 e5 with 2.f4 the game is in its last throes
Howard Staunton
There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white.
Richard M. Nixon
I’m sort of fascinated by America’s fascination with rednecks, the whole Duck Dynasty thing. Being a white guy from the South, I find it amazing that so many TV viewers are enchanted by beards, bad dentistry and moonshine accents.
Carl Hiaasen
The magic of life, of course, is not something that can be explained. Structures can only take us to the point where they begin or end. Beyond structures is the white light.
Frederick Lenz
The problem is the following, black music is increasing encumbered by white elements, often pleasant but always superfluous, easily and advantageously replaced with black elements.
Boris Vian
The great white city of brotherhood, Washington.
Christina Stead
Black employers are just as negative as the white employers concerning inner-city workers.
William Julius Wilson
I would be mute, beautiful, changless as the earth for you. I would be your memory, without age, always innocent, always waiting in the King’s white house. I would do that for you and no other man inthe relm. But it would be a lie and I will do anything but lie to you – I swear that.
Patricia A. McKillip
Some white people are so accustomed to operating at a competitive advantage that when the playing field is level, they feel handicapped.
Nathan McCall
White Americans today don’t know what in the world to do because when they put us behind them, that’s where they made their mistake… they put us behind them, and we watched every move they made.
Fannie Lou Hamer
For nearly a century, the South made itself believe that Negroes and white people were really communicating. So convinced of this were the white Southerners that they almost made the nation believe that they, and only they, knew the mind of the Southern Negro.
Benjamin E. Mays
I wanted to inspire people not to work under a bamboo ceiling. Whatever you are – yellow, black, white, brown – you don’t have to allow your skin to define who you are or how you operate your business. There’s not one face to anything.
Eddie Huang
White… is death. It’s hospitals. It’s my terrible nurses. White is absolute horror. It is just the worst.
Joan Mitchell
That space between the white lines – that’s my office. That’s where I conduct my business.
Early Wynn
Teaching Black Studies, I find that students are quick to label a black person who has grown up in a predominantly white setting and attended similar schools as “not black enough.” …Our concept of black experience has been too narrow and constricting.
Bell Hooks
When a sports movie really works, it gets you on all levels, because the stakes are high. It’s black and white. It’s win or lose.
Carla Gugino
The laughter in his deep-set black eyes, the feverish heat of his big hand around mine, the flash of his white teeth against his dark skin, his face stretching into the wide smile that had always been like a key to a secret door where only kindred spirits could enter.
Stephenie Meyer
I’m not white, I don’t apologize for what my country did to become great
Carlos Mencia
The memory of my father is wrapped up in white paper, like sandwiches taken for a day of work. Just as a magician takes towers and rabbits out of his hat, he drew love from his small body.
Yehuda Amichai
Black and white might be sufficient. But why deprive yourself of color.
Christian Dior
The only thing that white people have that black people need, or should want, is power-and no one holds power forever.
James A. Baldwin
She was a vision in a white gown her dark hair forming a hazy halo around her rosy heart-shaped face. Her long lashes fluttered to touch her cheeks and then her eyes opened fully in his direction. Her small round mouth flexed in an immediate and knowing smile. That’s the girl I’m going to marry Henry thought.
Anna Godbersen
Do you realize, when Mandela was inaugurated president, he invited as his special guests the white jailers from his Robben Island prison? He literally did forgive everybody.
Rush Limbaugh
The NBAs a Fortune 500 company. Thats how you look at it. And all the other Fortune 500 companies out there in the world, you dont see their CEOs and COOs going to work with white tees and baggy clothes and stuff like that. So I have to take that same approach.
Carmelo Anthony
If anybody had a reason to become a delinquent, to become a criminal, to be angry at the man, to be angry at the white man, to be angry at America, it’s my dad, but he did not feel that way at all.
Larry Elder
Character enough of an opposite description … My opinion is … that you could as soon scrub the blackamore white, as to change the principles of a profest Democrat; and that he will leave nothing unattempted to overturn the Government of this Country.
George Washington
The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.
As our boys and men are all expecting to be Presidents, so our girls and women must all hold themselves in readiness to preside inthe White House; and in no city in the world can honest industry be more at a discount than in this capital of the government of the people.
Jane Swisshelm
There are very few really stark black and white stories.
Jim Lehrer
Sexism isn’t a one-size-fits-all phenomenon. It doesn’t happen to black and white women the same way.
Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
His kiss was like white lightning, a flash that spread, and spread again, and stayed.
Henry James
We shall be free only together, black and white. We shall survive only together, black and white. We can be human only together, black and white.
Desmond Tutu
I lived and grew up in the black and white period of photojournalism.
Rene Burri
Face your reality. You, black or white, are not innocent anymore. Either you have the courage to face it or you will go down together with the whole idea of the American Dream.
Raoul Peck
When the young woman leans over the sky, about to water the flowers as well as the weeds, her white front splits open until her milk runs.
Gunter Grass
There is something transformative if you’re a black person cheering in a theater and turn to see a white person cheering for the same thing you are.
Jordan Peele
I don’t think the white establishment will ever respect or appreciate a black man who speaks the truth.
Rick James
Motherfuckers will read a book that’s one third Elvish, but put two sentences in Spanish and they [white people] think we’re taking over.
Junot Diaz
The piano keys are black and white but they sound like a million colors in your mind.
Maria Cristina Mena
You want the good life? You live where white people live, you go to school where white people go to school, and you shop where white people shop.
Sherman Alexie
I started to work in television for three or four years, in 1954. There was one channel of television, black and white. But it could be entertaining and educational. During the evening they showed important plays, opera or Shakespeare’s tragedies.
Umberto Eco
You have to understand that a lot of the working class is not white.
David Remnick
The problem with hatred and violence is that they intensity the fears of the white majority, and leave them less ashamed of their prejudices toward Negroes.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The White House is saying Donald Trump has ‘zero percent chance’ of being elected. Isn’t that a little high?
David Letterman
Let the straight-limbed laugh at the club-footed, the white skinned at the blackamoor.
My theory is because I’m Asian and white I sort of look like the future. I’m the melting pot.
Moon Bloodgood
When painters feel the need to make a shift toward self-discovery, they turn to black and white for a time.
Barnett Newman
We did an album one time called White Mansions, about the civil war, but it was written by a guy from England. His looking at it from over there and it not being a part of his history made it so he could be objective.
Waylon Jennings
I heard someone the other day who said ‘How can Colin Kaepernick lead this because he’s mixed and he was raised by adoptive White parents. I wonder if those people feel the same way about President [Barack] Obama.
Ed Gordon
The giant white cube is now impeding rather than enhancing the rhythms of art. It preprograms a viewer’s journey, shifts the emphasis from process to product, and lacks individuality and openness. It’s not that art should be seen only in rutty bombed-out environments, but it should seem alive.
Jerry Saltz
Church and State should be united in the White Man’s religion.
– Global White Racial Loyalty and Solidarity must be our constant goal.
– Race is everything. In order to survive and prosper, the White Race must overcome its five main enemies: Judaism, Christianity, Communism, Liberalism and Nationalism.
Ben Klassen
The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white Host.
Fulton J. Sheen
White is an attitude.
Malcolm X
The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white.
Wassily Kandinsky
Old age is far more than white hair, wrinkles, the feeling that it is too late and the game finished, that the stage belongs to the rising generations. The true evil is not the weakening of the body, but the indifference of the soul.
Andre Maurois
Before my grandpa built his own church, we went to the neighboring town, and it was a white community. You know, up north, mostly middle European people and Indians, Chippewa Indians. We were welcome to that church, but once we got in, they didn’t know what to do with us.
James Earl Jones
Where today are the Pequot? Where are the Narragansett, the Mohican, the Pcanet, and other powerful tribes of our people? They have vanished before the avarice and oppression of the white man, as snow before the summer sun.
Colour is everything, black and white is more.
Dominic Rouse
I mean, people don’t know what race I am. They never know if I’m Hawaiian or Italian or Mexican or Spanish or white. I could play Jewish, I could play anything.
Tyler Posey
The Black female is assaulted in her tender years by all those common forces of nature at the same time she is caught in the tripartite crossfire of masculine prejudice, white illogical hate and Black lack of power.
Maya Angelou
How are things visible? Can you see an egg against a white background? Not by drawing a line around it can you make it evident.
William Morris Hunt
I really focus on natural products, so I love using unrefined products instead of refined ones. I swap white rice for brown rice or quinoa. I use brown rice pasta instead of regular pasta, nut milk or oat milk instead of dairy milk, and coconut yogurt instead of cows’ yoghurt, etc.
Ella Woodward
Ron White was not one of the very first original members of the Motown staff, but eventually he was.
Smokey Robinson
White on rice. Green on grass. Sheets on a bed. Him on her.
Cindy Gerard
Ballet in the air… Twin butterflies until, twice white They Meet, they mate
Matsuo Basho
There are still many large white spaces on the map of human knowledge. You can go discover them. So do it. Get out there and fill in the blank spaces. Every single moment is a possibility to go to these new places and explore them.
Peter Thiel
People look back on those days through a thick veil of nostalgia, but life was hard if you were anything other than a rich, powerful white male
Jon Hamm
Any time someone carries a picket sign in front of the White House, that is the First Amendment in action
Julian Bond
Their prejudice allowed white Southerners to look the other way when blacks were denied their most basic human rights, and it encouraged the worst of them to engage in unspeakable acts of cruelty and violence.
Linda Chavez
If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world!
Noel Ignatiev
(I get to) kill all the white people… How great is that?
Jamie Foxx
Amazing how the White House, celebrities and gun control groups happen to repeatedly push for new initiatives in an organized fashion at the same time.
Katie Pavlich
If I was a supervillain, I’d create this universal, cosmic rule where every time an old, shitty, right-wing white man says something unsavory about a young woman, he would just get the clap immediately.
Jack Antonoff
As an attorney, I could be rather flamboyant in court. I did not act as though I were a black man in a white man’s court, but as if everyone else – white and black – was a guest in my court. When trying a case, I often made sweeping gestures and used high-flown language.
Nelson Mandela
Some people will say that words like scum and rotten are wrong for Objective Journalism — which is true, but they miss the point. It was the built-in blind spots of the Objective rules and dogma that allowed Nixon to slither into the White House in the first place.
Hunter S. Thompson
Life is never straightforward or emotionally black and white.
Christopher Meloni
Never once does Snow White herself look in the mirror so she isn’t aware of her beauty or what apparently that does to people. It’s really just the queen and the prince that talk about it.
Lily Collins
Your first name’s white, your second is Hispanic, and your third belongs to a black. No wonder you don’t know who you are.
Mickey Rivers
Yes, I love white, and I’d wear it all the time if I could. Some people think I have an issue with cleanliness, but to me it’s just so pretty.
Sandra Lee
what has been termed ‘correct’ English is nothing other than the blatant legitimation of the white middle-class code.
Dale Spender
We had a church together. We co-founded and co-pastored the ministry, but Randy [White] was really a strong part.
Paula White
The rain drags Black Sun down, but the rain dried by White Moon.
Tite Kubo
Let us build bridges, my friends, build bridges to human dignity across that gulf that separates black America from white America.
Richard M. Nixon
In every interview I’ve got to explain something about being white but still being into hip hop. It’s gone way beyond the musical aspect of the business. And I’m as critical about music as everybody else is.
Brian Austin Green
Here was one of the white man’s most characteristic behavior patterns – where black men are concerned. He loves himself so much that he is startled if he discovers that his victims don’t share his vainglorious self-opinion.
Malcolm X
And when you sigh from kiss to kiss
I hear white Beauty sighing, too,
For hours when all must fade like dew.
William Butler Yeats
The white sun like a moth on a string circles the southpole.
A. R. Ammons
She tells enough white lies to ice a wedding cake.
Margot Asquith
The media really only pays attention to white people. I think America is really racist.
Jeffree Star
I think, in many people’s minds, the Confederate battle flag is not only a memorial to our ancestors, which is perfectly OK, but also a symbol of white superiority and an inclination for people to believe that even slavery would’ve been OK.
Jimmy Carter
An election in which people have to wait 10 hours to vote, or in which black voters wait in the rain for hours, while white voters zip through polling places, is unworthy of the world’s leading democracy.
Adam Cohen
My sexuality is not black and white. I’m a gay man who has occasionally drifted. I am not bi. I’ve had perfectly pleasant romances with women, but they weren’t sustainable. My passion wasn’t there. I would always be looking at guys.
Kehinde Wiley
Future of his nation does not depend on what happens at the White House, but what happens at your house
Barbara Bush
I don’t take a dime of their [lobbyist] money, and when I am president, they won’t find a job in my White House.
Barack Obama
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of guns going off, you know, guns held by white men acting as vigilantes, cops who feel more free to open fire against African Americans.
Allan Nairn
In this world of lies, Truth is forced to fly like a scared white doe in the woodlands; and only by cunning glimpses will she reveal herself, as in Shakespeare and other masters of the great Art of Telling the Truth, even though it be covertly, and by snatches.
Herman Melville
The Republicans are looking at a country that is going to be a majority minority country in just over a generation. And they are an increasingly white party.
Mark Shields
Wrinkles and bones, white hair and diamonds: I can’t wait.
Truman Capote
I think the idea that you’re somehow rejecting whiteness if you don’t identify yourself as biracial is odd because everybody engages in whiteness. If you live in America, you’re doing whiteness all the time, even if you have no white people in your family.
Melissa Harris-Perry
My page was too white
My ink was too thin
The day wouldn’t write
What the night pencilled in.
Leonard Cohen
So, President Obama wants to change America. I understand that. We dont need to change America. We need to change the White House. We need to change the leadership in the White House.
Mario Diaz-Balart
If the black man is allowed to separate and go into some land of his own where he can solve his own problems, there won’t be any explosion, and the Negroes who want to stay with the white man, let them stay with the white man – but those who want to leave, let them go to The Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
Malcolm X
Suffice it to say that black and white are also colors… for their simultaneous contrast is as striking as that of green and red, for instance.
Vincent Van Gogh
Black and white are absolute…expressing the most delicate vibration, the most profound tranquility, and unlimited profundity.
Shiko Munakata
One of the most special things about the city of New Orleans is how diverse a people we really are. There’s been a new generation of individuals that have all grown up together, so I don’t really see myself as a White mayor. I’ve never seen New Orleans as a Black city.
Mitch Landrieu
Indians chase the vision, white men chase the dollar.
John Fire Lame Deer
My son, you are now flesh of our flesh and bone of our bone. By the ceremony performed this day, every drop of white blood was washed from your veins; you were taken into the Shawnee Nation.
Chief Blackfish
The friendly cow, all red and white, I love with all my heart; She gives me cream with all her might, To eat with apple-tart.
Robert Louis Stevenson
There is absolutely zero chance that ObamaCare will be repealed while Democrats control the Senate and President Obama is in the White House.
Juan Williams
A film fable so structured that all alchemical searchings are clearly filmwise (gold being discovered cinematically in each sequence ot mixed black-and-white and color) so that when the drama-discovery is actually made, it acts as a deliberate anti-climax of aesthetic perfection.
Stan Brakhage
Traveling in the segregated South for black people was humiliating. The very fact that there were separate facilities was to say to black people and white
people that blacks were so subhuman and so inferior that we could not even use public facilities that white people used.
Diane Nash
Everybody talks, nobody listens. Good listeners are as rare as white crows.
Helen Keller
Naturally, you don’t sit down in “white hot inspiration” and write with a burning flame in front of you. But since I knew I could never be happy being anything but a writer, and Mockingbird put itself together for me so accommodatingly, I kept at it because I knew it had to be my first novel, for better or for worse.
Harper Lee
I do not recall ever receiving a suggestion, let alone an order, from the White House as to how I should make a regulatory decision. How times have changed.
Russell E. Train
One of my earliest memories was President [J.F.] Kennedy’s funeral. I actually remember sitting on the floor in the living room looking at our black-and-white television and watching the caisson roll by and hearing the clip-clop of the horses. It’s actually one of my earliest memories.
Mike Pence
We were from downtown, so we were rapping in Danceteria, in these white downtown clubs, really. Nobody downtown was rapping. Nobody we knew was rapping. So we were like, ‘We should do it.’ We weren’t making fun of it; we loved it, and we wanted to be part of it.
Work continuously to trim the White House staff from your first day to your last. All the pressures are to the contrary.
Donald Rumsfeld
In the final analysis the weakness of Black Power is its failure to see that the black man needs the white man and the white man needs the black man.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
There is quite a lot of mutual misunderstanding between the upper middle class and the working class. Reviewing what’s been said about the white working class and the Democrats, I realized that there’s even a lot of disagreement about who the working class IS.
Timothy Noah
America’s most dangerous and threatening black man is the one who has been kept sealed up by the Northerner in the black ghettos – the Northern white power structure’s system to keep talking democracy while keeping the black man out of sight somewhere, around the corner.
Malcolm X
White people think when you love yourself you hate them. No, when I love myself they become irrelevant to me.
John Henrik Clarke
I don’t care if you’re black, white, short, tall, skinny, rich or poor. If you respect me I’ll respect you
Nobody Black had learned anything from the `Letter from the Birmingham Jail’ or from the `I Have a Dream’ speech. That was a revelation of white people.
Andrew Young
The world is not that black and white, Rachel. There are no moral absolutes. It is complex.
Emily Giffin
All white people talk about when they get high is other times that they got high.
Dave Chappelle
The main barrier between East and West today is that the white man is not willing to give up his superiority and the colored man is no longer willing to endure his inferiority.
Pearl S. Buck
A new poll shows that Senator Kerry’s support in the South is strongest amongst blacks. Kerry’s appeal to Southern blacks is obvious. He is a white man who lives far, far away.
Dennis Miller
I once did a – the first piece on Malcolm X that anyone had ever seen in the – white press.
Nat Hentoff
The NAACP was not a black-run, black-originated organization. It was run by 21 white, socialist, atheist, Marxist Democrats. It was the antithesis of Rev. Martin Luther King Sr.’s community at that time, which was capitalist, Christian, very pro-life, and pro-America.
Burgess Owens
If you want to make beautiful music, you must play the black and the white notes together.
Richard M. Nixon
I guess when it comes to this privileged White racist feminist movement they respect someone who treats them rough: John Wayne. Frank Sinatra. Phillip Roth.
Ishmael Reed
Shortly after assuming his duties at the White House, Trump hit a home-run by selecting conservative Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
Mike Braun
Memo to White House: Calling voters stupid is not a winning strategy.
Karl Rove
Amy Winehouse: Did she invent white soul? Wearing a beehive? No. But she did something brand new and fresh, altogether as a package, and you see who’s in her wake, from the Duffys to the Lana Del Reys. Adele selling 20 million records? That would not have happened if Amy Winehouse was alive.
Jack White
Whenever I have a problem, I ask the Saint (ThГ©rГЁse of Lisieux) not to solve it, but to take it into her hands and to help me accept it and I almost always receive a white rose as a sign.
Pope Francis
Twenty-five years ago nobody knew much about white sharks.
Peter Benchley
Gradually, very gradually, we saw the great mountain sides and glaciers and aretes, now one fragment and now another through the floating rifts, until far higher in the sky than imagination had dared to suggest the white summit of Everest appeared.
George Leigh Mallory
