Quote by Nathan Hare : “There is a white determination”

[There is a] white determination to regard black people as “white” without rewarding them and treating them as white or making them as educated or affluent. They regard black children as different from white, but insist upon black children acting and thinking as if they were white, to do this within a white framework and a white-designed milieu. Thus the black child is presented with a maddening, diabolical and double message: never forget that you are different, but we must all forever pretend that you are the same. – Nathan Hare
