“[The Negro] is not a visitor in the West, but a citizen there, and American; as American as the Americans who despise him, the Americans who fear him, the Americans who love him, the Americans who became less than themselves, or rose to be greater than themselves by virtue of the fact that the challenge he represented was inescapable…The time has come to realize that the interracial drama acted out on the American continent has not only created a new black man, it has created a new white man too…This world is no longer white, and it will never be white again.” James Baldwin
