"I remember I made this particular liberal so angry at me because I told ‘em right to their face, ‘Nobody owes you anything for slavery.’ If you want to tell the truth about it, it is you who owes, it’s you who owes, why do you owe? Because somebody in those fields took strikes for you... Somebody had to walk through Jim Crow for you! Somebody fought wars and died for you!”
Robinson on abortion:
You know what that argument (abortion in cases of rape and incest) reminds me of? It reminds me of the argument about seatbelts. I can remember this as a young man when we were arguing whether or not we should be required to wear seatbelts or if we should wear seatbelts. I can always remember there would be one person who would say ‘what if I get stuck on the railroad tracks and my seatbelt won’t come off.’ Number one, if you are stuck on the train tracks, that is (Charles) Darwin, that’s not any of my concern, that is Darwin. I cannot help you.
