White hate crimes, white hate speech. I still try to claim I wasn't brought up to hate. But hate isn't the half of it... - Adrienne Rich Quotes

Quote:White hate crimes, white hate speech. I still try to claim I wasn't brought up to hate. But hate isn't the half of it. I grew up in the vast encircling presumption of whiteness - that primary quality of being which knows itself, its passions, only against an otherness that has to be dehumanized. I grew up in white silence that was utterly obsessional. Race was the theme whatever the topic. - Adrienne Rich Quotes
