"Prisons do not disappear social problems, they disappear human beings. Homelessness, unemployment, drug addiction, mental illness, and illiteracy are only a few of the problems that disappear from public view when the human beings contending with them are relegated to cages"
Angela Davis (via socialjusticewarriorgirl)
"When I say Black Power, I know exactly what I’m talking about. But the white man runs up to me and says, “Black Power: that means violence, doesn’t it?” I refuse to react to that. I know what I’m talking about. If the white man doesn’t know what I’m talking about, that’s his problem, because black people understand me and that is who I’m talking to anyways."
