  1. Build walls to emphasize borders.
  2. Send out hateful messages and sign harmful executive orders.
  3. Create division and racial tension within a nation.
  4. Split up families and kick out Dreamers with no valid justification.

  7. Open the eyes of The People so we can all see that there is something very wrong with us all.

15 James Baldwin Quotes to Bring you Closer to Humanity

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Born in 1924, James Baldwin was an American essayist, novelist, playwright and social critic. He became an important voice through writing passionately about racial discrimination, spirituality and humanity.

Baldwin’s writings approach social issues and the psychological pressure affecting African Americans and individuals with different sexual orientations, a then-taboo subject. Baldwin explores another controversial subject – interracial relationships — in his novel Another Country.

As a victim of racism, Baldwin became an active participant in the civil rights struggle. The assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., pushed the author into using a more strident tone in his later work called No Name in the Street.

Some of Baldwin’s best work includes The Fire Next Time, The Devil Finds Work, Nobody Knows my Name and Remember this House – which is an unfinished manuscript that forms the basis of the documentary film I Am Not Your Negro.

An advocate for equity and acceptance, Baldwin died in December 1987.

You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.

Hatred, which could destroy so much, never failed to destroy the man who hated, and this was an immutable law.

The most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose.

Anyone who has ever struggled with poverty knows how extremely expensive it is to be poor.
