Wanda Sykes Quote



"If we had equal rights, we shouldn't have to be standing out here demanding something that we automatically should have as citizens of this country. ... I said, 'You know what, now I gotta get in your face.' And that's what we all have to do now. They pissed off the wrong group of people! They have galvanized our community."

Pissed is right and so is getting in their face! Waitng for folks to "come around" does nothing. They have nothing at stake and could care less how many more decades it takes.

That's a marvelous quote--my favorite of hers!

My second favorite is:

"Oh, you wanna get divorced? You think it's just that easy?! Listen here--your father and I had a shoot-out last week! Harry, show her where I shot you! He was wrong, I shot him...we move on! Now that's love there!"
