QUOTE OF THE DAY (Toni Morrison): “What are you without racism?”

by , under Enrique Tessieri


Dedicated to the racist politicians, political parties and groups in Finland.

And let’s be clear. I am talking about the Perussuomalaiset (PS)*, National Coalition Party (Kokoomus), Christian Democrats, neo-Nazi groups and websites like Hommaforum. Some politicians that come to mind are Jussi Halla-aho, Riikka Purra, Ville Tavio, Matias Turkkila, Ano Turtiainen, Mauri Peltokangas, Juha Mäenpää, Junes Lokka, Tiina Wiik, Wille Rydman, Petteri Orpo, Sari Essayah Paula Risikko and a long list of others.

The late Toni Morrison (1931-2019) exposed the tiny soul of the racist.

“[but] when you take it [from the racist] away, I take your race away, the only thing you got is your little self, and what is that? What are you without racism? Are you any good? Are you still strong? Still smart? Do you still like yourself?”
