“Don’t Label Me” should be labeled as genius.” Chris Rock
I agree. Though I’m only an eighth of the way through the book, it is upending my liberal, all-inclusive, ‘I’m in the right’ paradigm.
From page 9:
“…We’re attaching labels to individuals as if those labels capture the sum of who they are. Moreover, we’re labeling ourselves to the point of extinguishing our own humanity.
“…Allow me to elaborate. More and more of us in the diversity crowd label people as ignorant and insidious if they hold opinions that diverge from our script. We rally for diversity of appearance but we flake on diversity of viewpoint.”
Don’t label me, Manda.
