Friday Grab Bag: Two phrases

Friday again, Grab Bag again.

Two phrases popped in my head this last week and I note them down here, mostly as space filler on a Friday ...

Always prick the balloon of pomposity that elevates a name.

The psychic violence of whites. 
[The phrase needs a little context ... it comes from seeing an archival street photograph from the 1950s of a white boy sitting on a chair having his shoes shined by an equally-aged black boy kneeling in front of him.]
