"The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)"

"If you’re with somebody and you’re not terrified of them, how is that gonna last? Ya know what I mean? How are you going to behave properly if you are not terrified of them? What, do you think just intimacy and trust is going to hold that together?"
