WEEKEND QUOTABLES

R.I.P. Erica Garner
Erica Garner 
"I'm in This Fight Forever" -- The Root
Lenny Steinhorn, historian at American University 
"1968 was the perfect storm that crystallized the differences in society." -- U.S. News 
 Chicago Mayor Richard Daley at '68 Convention
 When Senator Abraham Ribicoff, of Connecticut, was giving a speech, the mayor of Chicago, Richard Daley, shouted at him, “Fuck you, you Jew son of a bitch, you lousy motherfucker, go home.” -- New Yorker, "Lessons from the Election of 1968"

Every kid can learn, but every kid can learn differently at different times. Some kids need more time than others. Some have learning disabilities. Some don't know English. A full 10% of our kids are homeless, and as long as we continue to ignore that, we won't be serving them no matter how often we give them the meaningless label of "college ready." -- NYC Educator 
Kenzo Shibata (DSA) 
We really do need to envision what organized labor looks like and it's not always going to look like money taken out of your paycheck to pay for representing you at the negotiating table. States and different locals are approaching it differently. But people have to feel like they're together, part of a union...Changing that mindset is going to be key to their survival. -- Hitting Left
