Quote of the day

“I think nobody really loves America more than black Americans, because black Americans loved America even when America didn’t love us back”

– Jamal Simmons

I was fortunate enough to see Jamal Simmons give the keynote at yesterday’s Canadian-American Business Council luncheon and this line really just floored me. In fact, I think I and a few others in the room almost got emotional when he said it. It’s difficult to imagine the pain induced by that kind of rejection from a community you care so much about.
