“Society has a problem with female nudity when it is not… ” —Badu pauses to get her words together; she wants this point to be very clear— “…when it is not packaged for the consumption of male entertainment. Then it becomes confusing.”—
“I remind young people everywhere I go, one of the worst things the older generation did was to tell them for twenty-five years “Be successful, be successful, be successful” as opposed to “Be great, be great, be great”. There’s a qualitative difference.”—Dr. Cornel West (via heyfranhey)
“We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?”—Fahrenheit 451- Ray Bradbury (via youresoprettyandimsoshy)
But O’Reilly said the rate of unwed mothers is about 25% in white communities. “I think that we have to be honest about this…The more you have chaos in the family, the more violent crime you’re gonna have,” he said.
If O’Reilly really wants to be honest, he should note that out-of-wedlock birthrates are soaring in this country and not just among blacks. The Centers for Disease Control found in 2009 that from 1995 to 2002, the nonmarital birth rate for black women declined 12%. Also, the birthrate for unmarried Hispanic women is higher than for African Americans. Yet O’Reilly fixated on black babies from unwed mothers.
