There is nothing called saffron terror or green terror, both colours belong to our national flag

Gandhi was very casteist and racist indeed and any red-blooded untouchable will know what Gandhi’s real intentions were

I didn’t intend to write a book. When I was in India, I would always wonder about my being Dalit; why is it that I am a Christian, yet I am considered inferior to let’s say, a Syrian Christian or a Goan. Why are they rich and we do we continue to be poor – I would wonder. But I was ashamed to ask these questions; until I went to the US.

Prasoon is a friend of mine. We all love JLF and do not want to bring any disrepute to the festival. Prasoon took the right decision. I would have done the same if I were him. Why give free importance to anyone? People and children who have come here are interested in books, why turn this wonderful atmosphere into a political issue. That is why he perhaps did what he did

Eighty-six years earlier, Mahatma Gandhi said, ‘I am ready to die but I will not let the Hindus to be divided. I am shocked and pained that Rahul Gandhi forgot Mahatma Gandhi

It is not only that West’s preoccupations with Obama’s perceived failures distracted him, though that is true; more accurate would be to say that the last several years revealed West’s paucity of serious and fresh intellectual work, a trend far longer in the making. West is still a Man of Ideas, but those ideas today are a vain and unimaginative repackaging of his earlier hits.

Martin Luther King never talked about people he disagreed with in the way West has talked about me or Melissa or Jackson or Obama. Martin Luther King didn't even call the white racists he disagreed with those kind of names

Let’s be honest. A lot of the response against Obama was for no other reason than he was a black man. If you don’t like Barack Obama as a black man, there are not too many other brothers you’re going to dig. Because he’s nice, he’s congenial, he’s affable, he agrees with people who disagree with him. That kind of man is extremely rare.

The very guy that who questioned the legitimacy of Barack Obama as a black man is now the president of the United States of America. You’re answering your own question in that sense.

Michael Eric Dyson

There's no question that President Obama missed a boatload of opportunities to deal with the issue of race, A, because he didn't want to, B, because he felt that his poll numbers would sink that moment he began to weigh in on this.

If you leave a vacuum, other people come along to offer their viewpoints, whether xenophobic, or nativist or racist and they give perspectives that are extremely challenging.
