We Negro writers, just by being black, have been on the blacklist all our lives. Censorship for us begins at the color line.
I do believe that there will be a clash between East and West. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don't think that it will be based upon the color of the skin….
Since the form is only an expression of the content and the content is different with different artists, it is then clear that there can be many different forms at the same time which are equally good. Necessity creates the form. Fish which live at great depths have no eyes. The elephant has a trunk. The chameleon changes its color, and so forth.
Anyone can wear any color. The question is about finding the right shade. There is a momentary trend to dark colors because when the financials are not that great, people go for black, navy and grey.
Well, my favorite color I guess I would say yellow.
The moon is essentially gray, no color; looks like plaster of Paris or sort of a grayish beach sand.
The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line.
W. E. B. Du Bois
I do believe, as a person of color, the disparities are great. A lot of the roles that were sent to me were 'Gangbanger No. 1.' And when a role did come up that I felt carried and represented my community in the best ways, I wasn't the only one that knew it existed. So I'd have to compete.
It doesn't matter what color, sex, religion, age, sexual orientation, etc., everyone should have the same freedoms and liberties.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Those differences are what color the performance, but in the movies you don't get a chance to rehearse.
I think 'The Color of Money' was very instrumental in opening up other opportunities. People started to recognize me as an artist after that film. And then, after I did 'Bird,' it was more solidified.
I think a lot of people have a problem with the fact that I've adopted an African child, a child who has a different color skin than I do.
When I grew up, what was interesting for me was that music was color and life was gray. So music for me has always been more than entertainment.
God has neither form nor color. He is incorporeal and immense. Whatever is seen in the world describes his greatness.
I prefer living in color.
I think it was just an opera. Now, you go to opera, you expect to see and hear what the opera is. So, it was Catfish Row. It was singers. Marvelous voices. It didn't make no difference what color they were.
There is a fatality, a feeling so irresistible and inevitable that it has the force of doom, which almost invariably compels human beings to linger around and haunt, ghostlike, the spot where some great and marked event has given the color to their lifetime; and still the more irresistibly, the darker the tinge that saddens it.
