Kareem Abdul-Jabbar


Last quote by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

If you're going to wait for a convenient time to do the social activism, you won't get anything done because these issues have a life of their own and you have to deal with them. You can't wait until it's convenient. It was very interesting to hear [Congressman] John Lewis talk about these things. Things he went through when he was a civil rights activists being beaten up and he still come out with a positive attitude. He said unless you put your life on the line, you're not fully committed. This is worth risking your life for and you might possibly die. You have to make a commitment.feedback
