[At the 1977 Academy Awards] I’m here to explain why black people will never be nominated for anything. This show is going out to seventy-five million people – none of them black. We don’t even know how to vote. There’s 3,349 people in the voting thing and only two black people – Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte. We’re quitting. You’ll have to listen to Lawrence Welk.
[on experiencing racism] I was just on the Today (1952) show and they were telling me how wonderful I was and I walk out into the reality of America and I can’t get a cab.
