QUOTE: Michael Eric Dyson

 

 

“Charity is no substitute for justice.  If we never challenge a social order that allows some to accumulate wealth – even if they decide to help the less fortunate – while others are short-changed, then even acts of kindness end up supporting unjust arrangements.  We must never ignore the injustices that make charity necessary, or the inequalities that make it possible. ”
