Claudia Rankine

  • Perhaps this is how racism feels no matter the context — randomly the rules everyone else gets to play by no longer apply to you, and to call this out by calling out 'I swear to God!' is to be called insane, crass, crazy. Bad sportsmanship.

  • The worst injury is feeling you don't belong so much / to you --

  • ... because white men can't / police their imagination / black men are dying.

  • The state of emergency is also always a state of emergence.

Claudia Rankine, U.S. poet, essayist, playwright, editor

(1963)
