On patriarchy

“I grew up in traditional black patriarchal culture and there is no doubt that I’m going to take a great many unconscious, but present, patriarchal complicities to the grave because it is so deeply ensconced in the way I look at the world. Therefore, very much like alcoholism, drug addiction, or racism, patriarchy is a disease and we are in perennial recovery and relapse. So you have to get up every morning and struggle against it.”

~ Dr. Cornel West
Magana cum laud from Harvard
Ph.D from Princeton and
(in my eyes) a super hero
