"When people of colour are expected to educate white people as to their humanity, when women are expected to educate men, lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world, the oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions."

"A white man is promoted: He does good work, he deserved it.

A man of color is promoted: Oh, great, I guess we have to “fill quotas” now.
