Reed

Famous quotes containing the word reed:

    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)

    —Lou Reed (b. 1943)

    Boold was hir face, and fair, and reed of hewe.
    She was a worthy womman al hir lyve.
    Housbondes at chirche dore she hadde fyve,
    Withouten oother compaignye in youthe—
    But therof nedeth nat to speke as nowthe.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
