I wrote this down on a piece of paper after watching the documentary about writer Toni Morrison’s life. I came away with lots of gems but this quote stood out. The context is the racism she and her family experience in the United States but I think it applies to governments like the United States who have used colonialization or imperialism as a way to steal resources and gain power.
“If you can only be tall when somebody is on their knees then you have a problem” -Toni Morrison.
