The powerless, by definition, can never be “racists,” for they can never make the world pay for what they feel or fear except by suicidal endeavor which makes them fanatics or revolutionaries, or both; whereas, those in power can be urbane and charming and invite you to those homes which they know you will never own. The powerless must do their own dirty work. The powerful have it done for them.James Baldwin, To be Baptized, No Name in the Street. (via homonoire)
Don’t move the way fear makes you move. Move the way love makes you move. Move the way joy makes you move.Osho (via occult101)
