"I don’t think it’s correct to describe the insensitivities we may exhibit toward each other as racist. Racism is not a personal affliction. It’s a system of attitudes and behaviors. It’s institutionalized and is a means to justify exploitation. We as Black people do not have at our disposal the means to enforce a system of superiority and exploitation." 

—Barbara Smith, in her introduction to Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology
