“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.”
- Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks
“Each generation must, out of relative obscurity, discover its mission, fulfill it, or betray it.”
- Frantz Fanon
