Science is all metaphor.
People called me a hoodlum and a thug. But they didn’t tell you I was a carpenter, an architect, a stand-up comic – even a bartender. And a barbecue cook. But they didn’t tell you that.
There is an entire generation of young people who know nothing about how viciously the FBI attacked The Black Panther Party, and why.
I consider myself a political revolutionary humanist.

On the one hand, the guns were there to help capture the imagination of the people. But more important, since we knew that you couldn’t observe the police without guns, we took our guns with us to let the police know that we have an equalizer.
I like Barack Obama.
Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.
I’m still a political revolutionary. The fire never went out of me, but perceptions and realizations change.
The universe is an intelligence test.
