Famous quotes containing the word african:
“Kitsch ... is one of the major categories of the modern object. Knick-knacks, rustic odds-and-ends, souvenirs, lampshades, and African masks: the kitsch-object is collectively this whole plethora of trashy, sham or faked objects, this whole museum of junk which proliferates everywhere.... Kitsch is the equivalent to the cliché in discourse.”
—Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
“I think its unfair for people to try to make successful blacks feel guilty for not feeling guilty.... Were unique in that were not supposed to enjoy the things weve worked so hard for.”
