- Shut up and listen. And when you’re done shutting up, shut up some more.
- Your analysis of their experience isn’t as good as their story of their experience.
- Black history is being made every day.
- American history is black history.
- American was built through theft of black labor and black lives. The theft is going on today.
- Many whites still deny that racism exists.
- More blacks don’t participate in cycling because they are not marketed to, not because they can’t afford it.
- USAC has no meaningful plan to increase diversity, nor do most promoters.
- Trump tore off the band-aid and revealed the wound for the world to see.
- You can’t fix racism until you fix discrimination against women.
- I can’t do much. But that’s no excuse not to do what little I can.
