Famous quotes containing the words media and/or hot:

    Few white citizens are acquainted with blacks other than those projected by the media and the so—called educational system, which is nothing more than a system of rewards and punishments based upon one’s ability to pledge loyalty oaths to Anglo culture. The media and the “educational system” are the prime sources of racism in the United States.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    That thou hast power to shake my manhood thus,
    That these hot tears, which break from me perforce,
    Should make thee worth them.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
