Roxie:

You gotta do what you gotta do. I have lived long enough to realize that we ain't never been one big happy family and we ain't never gonna be.

Yes we all consider things like "duty to the race" and "consciousness" but there comes a time when its time for you to die and you will be all alone and won't be nobody there talking about solidarity or power to the people.

I can handle being around all kinds of people--decent poor hardworking people as well as street people, junkies, gangbangers, prostitutes, pimps, you have it but I gotta get my hat when they get into their thing. I can't be with them when they do that. You gotta do what you think is right and try not to hurt nobody and that's all you can do.
