Nihilism is not overcome by arguments or analyses; it is tamed by love and care. Any disease of the soul must be conquered by a turning of one’s soul. This turning is done through one’s own affirmation of one’s worth—an affirmation fueled by the concern of others. A love ethic must be at the center of a politics of conversion.
~ Cornel West in Race Matters

"Humility is the fruit of inner security and wise maturity. To be humble is to be so sure of one’s self and one’s mission that one can forego calling excessive attention to one’s self and status."

Cornel West, Race Matters: The Crisis of Black Leadership

(via emilydao)

"Although hip-hop culture has become tainted by the very excesses and amorality it was born in rage against, the best of rap music and hip-hop culture still expresses stronger and more clearly than any cultural expression in the past generations a profound indictment of the moral decadence of our dominant society. An unprecedented cultural breakthrough created by talented poor black youths in the hoods of the empire’s chocolate cities, hip-hop has by now transformed the entertainment industry and culture here and around the world. The fundamental irony of hip-hop is that it has become viewed as a nihilistic, macho, violent, and bling-bling phenomenon when in fact its originating impulse was a fierce disgust with the hypocrisies of adult culture—disgust with the selfishness, capitalist callousness, and xenophobia of the culture of adults, both within the hood and in the society at large."

"The powers that be want to suppress the truth. We know truth crushed to earth shall rise again. The truth is dangerous."

Cornel West

"We have to be militants for kindness, subversive for sweetness and radicals for gentleness. And then also fight for justice."

"The basic problem with my love relationships with women is that my standards are so high - and they apply equally to both of us. I seek full-blast mutual intensity, fully fledged mutual acceptance, full-blown mutual flourishing, and fully felt peace and joy with each other. This requires a level of physical attraction, personal adoration, and moral admiration that is hard to find."

Cornel West (via i-a-rebel-soul)
