Angry White America, Summarized

“Men and women rarely admit their fear of freedom openly, however, tending to camouflage it–sometimes unconsciously–by presenting themselves as defenders of freedom. They give their doubts and misgiving an air of profound sobriety, as befitting the custodians of freedom. But they confuse freedom with the maintenance of the status quo; so that if critical consciousness threatens to place that status quo at question, it thereby seems to constitute a threat to freedom itself.”
