I’ll tell you the most believable thing about [Orange Is The New Black] is the idea that Piper only got 15 months for running dope money…I’m a white blonde girl who went out and willfully fucked up and committed armed robbery, and I got five years. There were tons of black girls in my prison who were holding onto a bag of dope for a couple of days, and they always seemed to get, like, 10 years. If you ever find yourself in prison and wonder why there’s tension between white and black, shit like that is probably one of the reasons.
[T]o attempt [to carry out the revolution FOR the people] is equivalent to carrying out a revolution WITHOUT the people, because the people are drawn into the process by the same methods and procedures used to oppress them.
