    I never feel so conscious of my race as I do when I stand before a class of twenty-five young men and women eager to learn about what it is to be black in America.
    Claire Oberon Garcia, African American college professor. As quoted in the Chronicle of Higher Education, p. B3 (July 27, 1994)

    Americans are very friendly and very suspicious, that is
    what Americans are and that is what always upsets the
    foreigner, who deals with them, they are so friendly
    how can they be so suspicious and they are so
    suspicious how can they be so friendly but they just
    are and that certainly has something to do with their
    having tucked their capital, their capitals away.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
