“We as a Black people are so into individual personalities that we fight for them more than we fight for the collective. This is what Barack Obama and now the issue with Angela Davis tell me.
There are so many issues impacting our community. Will they be solved whether or not Dr. Davis gets an award? Whether or not we have a Black president?
Symbols are important, but they cannot be everything.” – Jyarland Daniels
“We’re out here losing… BAD. At every turn. Our response? Fight for symbols, black faces in high places and for people who would not fight for us harder than we fight for the collective.
