help sourcing a quote? 

having a hard time remembering where this is from. can someone help me source this quote?

"if a white man hates a black man, that's not the black man's problem. but if a white man can kill a black man with impunity, it becomes the black man's problem."

paraphrased obviously since i can't find the direct quote

re: help sourcing a quote? 

quote source to Kwame Ture:

“If a white man wants to lynch me, that's his problem. If he's got the power to lynch me, that's my problem. Racism is not a question of attitude; it's a question of power. Racism gets its power from capitalism. Thus, if you're anti-racist, whether you know it or not, you must be anti-capitalist. The power for racism, the power for sexism, comes from capitalism, not an attitude.”
