In short, I, too, agree with the sentiment of quotation and sympathize with your crusade against fake news. At this point, I think it`s certainly too late to comment on your friend`s contribution, but in the future, I think a similar correction would really only depend on the situation – like close to a friend, like the misleading mistake, how engaged you are usually on social media, etc. Idk, man, but do you know, that the first person who made the quote “Don`t you believe everything you read on the Internet” did to Abraham Lincoln, actually Martin Luther King Jr? A quote widely attributed to James Baldwin, but which was actually tagged by Robert Jones, Jr. on Twitter on August 18, 2015, briefly explains Son of Baldwin`s intent: given all this, it was obvious that Baldwin had no shortage of comments. Scroll down to find 10 of Baldwin`s most important quotes that will change your life. As for ghost attributions, I came across the Church Style Guide this week, and I`m a NERD, so I read it, and I thought the most interesting part was the “Often Misasented Quotes” section (p. 76). I was pleased to discover that the quote “No other success can compensate for the failure of the house,” often attributed to President McKay, actually comes from J.E. McCulloch. This prescription error will probably irritate me.

James Baldwin`s height could never be underestimated and his relevance is probably greater than ever in 2020, given that the country faces problems he documented decades ago. This documentary, in the form of his literary gifts to the world, as well as speeches and interviews, immortalizes Baldwin`s brilliance with the wise wisdom that has given way to a series of quotes that have been attributed to him and that have passed the test of time. Mine, our disagreement with Trump is indeed rooted in his support for the oppression of the people he and his supporters consider to be others and against their denial of their humanity and their right to exist. This quote from James Baldwin describes Trump`s attacks well: “No matter what you describe to another person, it`s also a revelation of who you are and who you think you are. You cannot describe anything without betraying your point of view, your aspirations, your fears, your hopes. Dear 100-hour board of directors, a friend just posted a photo that attributes to James Baldwin the following quote: “We can disagree and love each other again, unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression and denial of my humanity and right to existence. This immediately shook my Senses Spidey, partly because his register appears to Baldwin in the twenty-first century and partly because I don`t believe James Baldwin, a good writer that he was, would ever have written the crime against parallelism, which is “in my oppression and denial of my humanity and my right to exist.” (Grammatically correct, yes, but stylistically disappointing.) A quick google search found many other people who cited Baldwin, but no original Baldwin source…
