“My parents rejected all dogmas… We would not kneel before their God. And so I had no sense that any just God was on my side. ‘The meek shall inherit the earth’ meant nothing to me. The meek were battered in West Baltimore, stomped out at Wallbrook Junction, bashed up on Park Heights, and raped in the showers of the city jail. My understanding of the universe was physical and its moral arc bent twoard chaos then canluded in a box.”

– Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me
