Anna Maria Chavez

Bullying is a national epidemic.
Everyone in America likely has a bullying story, whether as the victim, bully or as a witness.

Octavia E. Butler

One of the things I don't like about film is its incredible immersive quality. It's kind of bullying - it's very big, it's very flashy, it's got a lot of weight and it throws it around almost to the detriment of the rest of our culture.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
