Quote of the Day…

Daniel Kaluuya

Race is not something I’m interested in like I’m interested in music. I’m not reading so many essays [about race] for fun; I’m reading them because I need to know how to articulate myself in certain situations, and I feel very alone in certain spaces. And I feel weird, and I have to have a word map, and the armour. I know about race for armour. I don’t know about race to make myself feel good. I’m not a spokesperson; I’m an individual. Who’s the spokesperson for white people? There isn’t one. No one’s expected to speak up for all white people. I’m just living my life. I’m a black man, I’m proud of it, but I’m just living my life. I don’t see myself as a victim. You may victimise me, but you will not make me feel like a victim. And if you think you can, then what sort of person are you?

Daniel Kaluuya said about race during an interview with The Guardian.
