"The major enemy of black survival in America has been and is neither oppression nor exploitation but rather the nihilistic threat - that is, loss of hope and absence of meaning. For as long as hope remains and meaning preserved, the possibility of overcoming oppression stays alive. The self-fulfilling prophecy of nihilistic threat is that without hope there can be no future, that without meaning there can be no struggle." - Cornell West, Race Matters
