There’s no such thing as an inferior people. There are oppressed people. And they’re not oppressed by superior people. They are oppressed by people who are better organized than they are.
The reason why the Klu Klux Klan terrorizes us is because they are organized. They have meetings every week and their members go to the meetings. They discuss racist ideology. They internalize it and then they mobilize it. They even make uniforms for that.
Not many of us can say we go to meetings every week for the people.

This made me laugh so dang hard.
that’s almost too cruel
I had to do this once with Privateer II: The Darkening. It gained a bit when he said “I bet you didn’t play it through, I bet somebody just told you how…” and I was able to smile gently and say “God, possibly, since I wrote the game.” And plainly the Deity was with me that day, as I happened to be carrying docs from my UK agent (who’d done the deal) that showed not only that I was the writer, but the five-figure sum I had been paid. …It was a happy day for me. Not so much for him. I’d never had a referent for the word “slink” for a full grown male before. As in “slink away in utter dejection.” I smiled for at least three days without stopping. And am smiling now… I had completely forgotten about this.
Reblogging because “I beat the game” is fantastic, but “I wrote the damn thing” is even better.
Reboggling again for the fortuitous mansplainer smackdown.
