Black History Month quote of the day: Diane Abbott

“The concerns which black people voice about service delivery, housing, unemployment and security are important to white people as well. I don’t think that providing good education and decent housing are marginal issues. The black agenda is not a marginal agenda.” Diane Abbott from Terri A. Swell, Black Tribunes [1993]
