There is the list of some quotes of Rae Dawn Chong:
  • Unattractive people are more obsessed with looks.
  • I have a good mind but I don't like to bore anyone with it.
  • Whoopi Goldberg is a blazing trail for black women - for just black anything to be successful. Still, I often ask myself if I have to be a 30-year-old ex-junkie who lived in Berkeley and did stand-up comedy in Germany, before I can get some respect.
