Randall Robinson Quotes

Condelleza Rice and Colin Powell are both dangerous people. What they did in Haiti [2004 U.S.-backed coup that ousted democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide] is a good measure of it. They destroyed a democracy. They squelched loans that had been approved by the Inter-American Development Bank. They did everything behind the scenes, including arming the thugs that came to overrun the country. Theyre frauds.

Son, you won't need to talk to my headstone in order to talk to me. I won't be there. I'll be in the air and the Earth. I'll be in the stars that light the African heavens. I'll be watchin' over you and your family. My spirit will always be close enough to touch and protect you all. So, do not grieve for me. My body will die, but my soul will live on. For my soul cannot die. Always remember that my soul is the spark of God in me.

Where does a black soul go to rest?

I was really worn down by an American society that is racist, smugly blind to it, and hugely self-satisfied.

I got a chance to be in a society where the barriers between classes - social and economic - are not insuperable, where money is not everything all the time.

— Randall Robinson

For anyone who is not white in America, the affronts are virtually across the board.
