"We were citizens. I mean we, African-Americans, were second-class citizens, but anyway, hopeful people. And then after the war we became consumers. Happiness in acquisition. And now we are only taxpayers. I'm going to give my tax dollars to those people?! If I'm only a taxpayer, I'm very upset. That's a different deal. A citizen has some connection to his neighbourhood, or his state or his country. The taxpayer doesn't." - Toni Morrison in The Guardian, April 14 2012
