John Henrik Clarke quotes – These are some of my favorite quotes

“Whoever is in control of the hell in your life, is your devil.”
“Racists will always call you a racist when you identify their racism. To love yourself now – is a form of racism. We are the only people who are criticized for loving ourselves. and white people think when you love yourself you hate them. No, when I love myself they become irrelevant to me.”
“Powerful people can not afford to educate the people they oppress… because once you are truly educated, you will not ASK for power you will TAKE it.”
“History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are, but more importantly, what they must be.”
“I only debate my equals. All others, I teach.” The best of all.
