  • "We live in a nation that does everything to induce our rage while simultaneously doing everything to deny that we have a right to feel it. American democracy is as much a project of suppressing Black rage as it is of leigimizing and elevating white rage. American democracy uses calls for civility, equality, liberty and justice as smoke screens to obscure all the ways in which Black folks are treated uncivilly, unequally, illiberally, and unjustly as a matter of course."
    • Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower (2018), p. 169
  • "Treating Black feminism as primarily an anti-racist intervention within feminism continues to render it as a disruptive and temporary event, to be addressed, responded to, and moved on from, back to the regularly scheduled course of things."
    • "Love No Limit: Towards a Black Feminist Future (in Theory)," Black Scholar, 45:4 (2105), p. 15.
