Dr. J - Resistance

Did I say that I love this man for his vision, thoughtfulness, scholarship and relevancy! :)
From such a position, that is, within the American constitutional order, the enterprises of resistance and protest would be able to reassert themselves as acts dedicated to reforming America and to holding her to her own ideals, rather than as attempts to destroy her or impose upon her an alien vision from without. Resistance, however, would have to emerge as a positive, efficacious effort that served a higher good. Indeed, Blackamerican Muslims would have to recognize that blind resistance is no less grounded in a false universal than is the order that it blindly resists.
-pg. 168 of Islam and the Blackamerican by Sherman A. Jackson
