Quotable: Juan Cole on the ‘toon riots

“When you talk about violence, people tend not to see their own violence. How many Americans are even aware that there were race riots in Cincinnati not so long ago? We have lots of violence in this country, including mob violence. We don’t think about it, because it’s not marked for us. Other people’s violence is marked as, you know, those people did it; if we do it, it’s not noticed so much.”

Juan Cole, interviewed by Metro Times Detroit
