Leading the discussion was a panel of faculty members: a husky black woman, husky black man, and the obligatory pear-shaped white woman--because most true believers of the white woman persuasion take after fruit of some sort. As can be expected of the kind of white woman you see at a black organizing event, she was the most outspoken and hostile towards the racist, misogynistic, patriarchal, male establishment. But not in those words--these ones:
- "Now, more than ever, we need black organizations. Racism/classism is embedded in our language today."
- "The seat of power hasn't shifted ... We need equality for women and minorities ... White men have the power."
- "America is NOT post-racial. People like to think it is, because of Obama's election, but it's not. We still have poverty in our community, and we still have crime."
