"... Whatever you are given, you must graciously accept, and ask for no more. You must accept the Eurocentric standard of beauty, logic, and loyalty. You must take a strong dose of religion to pacify any aggression that may build in your soul. You must recognize every white person's right to authority. When called upon, you must perform whatever talent you possess. You are entertainment. You must support the plights of white people. You must not support the plights of your own people. You must reduce yourself and make yourself fit. Finally, you must not support any black person seeking economic power. When in doubt, simply ask yourself, what would make the white person more comfortable? This is the way of the Good Negro."
"I am not a Good Negro but I want a good job. So what am I to do? Conform. I'm not Kanye West or Spike Lee. I just want to be me. I want to get a loan from a bank and start my business. I want to run for office and be somebody. I just want to graduate. " - Confessions of a Black College Student at a PWI.
