DEAF BIPOC PLATFORM & ACTIVISTS ARE CHANGING THE GAME

“It is more often more important to be ahead of the majority and this means being willing to cut the first furrow in the ground and stand alone for a while if necessary.” - Patsy Mink

What is a coat-tailer?
Someone who rides off the coat tails of someone else to climb the 'proverbial' ladder - career, social, etc.


Created another illustration for educational and awareness purpose.

***********************************************
QUOTE ABOUT MOB MENTALITY
The mob believes everything it is told, provided only that it be repeated over and over. Provided too that its passions, hatreds, fears are catered to. Nor need one try to stay within the limits of plausibility: on the contrary, the grosser, the bigger, the cruder the lie, the more readily is it believed and followed. Nor is there any need to avoid contradictions: the mob never notices; needless to pretend to correlate what is said to some with what is said to others: each person or group believes only what he is told, not what anyone else is told; needless to strive for coherence: the mob has no memory; needless to pretend to any truth: the mob is radically incapable of perceiving it: the mob can never comprehend that its own interests are what is at stake. - Alexandre Koyrรฉ
