“Americans, unhappily, have the most remarkable ability to alchemize all bitter truths into an innocuous but piquant confection and to transfrom their moral contradictions, or public disussion of such contradictions, into a proud decoration, such as are given for heroism on the field of battle.”

– James Baldwin, Notes of a Native Son
