Our party must continue to strike fear in the heart of the white man, our real enemy! Robert Mugabe
A free society will abide unofficial, private discrimination, even when that means allowing hate-filled groups to exclude people based on the color of their skin. Rand Paul
Genocide begins, however improbably, in the conviction that classes of biological distinction indisputably sanction social and political discrimination. Andrea Dworkin
When they kept you out it was because you were black; when they let you in, it is because you are black. That's progress? Marilyn French

I've run into more discrimination as a woman than as an Indian. Wilma Mankiller
Intolerance is the most socially acceptable form of egotism, for it permits us to assume superiority without personal boasting. Sydney J. Harris

To believe in something not yet proved and to underwrite it with our lives: it is the only way we can leave the future open. Lillian Smith
This is just what I have thought when I have seen slaves at work - they seem to go through the motions of labor without putting strength into them. They keep their powers in reserve for their own use at night, perhaps. Frederick Law Olmsted
The extinction of race consciousness as between Muslims is one of the outstanding achievements of Islam, and in the contemporary world there is, as it happens, a crying need for the propagation of this Islamic virtue. Arnold J. Toynbee
Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible. Maya Angelou
The Congress urges every Arabs to buy nothing but the Jews but land, and to sell them everything but land. Huda Sha'arawi
We hold as undeniable truths that the governments of the various States, and of the confederacy itself, were established exclusively by the white race, for themselves and their posterity; that the African race had no agency in their establishment; that they were rightfully held and regarded as an inferior and dependent race, and in that condition only could their existence in this country be rendered beneficial or tolerable. Texas
It is a risky step to interfere with the most intimate details of other people's lives while loudly claiming liberty for yourself. Douglas Laycock
Adapting the law to the needs of believers has long been part of the American ethos of inclusivity, but lately 'religious liberty' is being invoked to justify intolerance. Emily Bazelon
... rich white leaders of the American South defeated populism in the late 19th century, by persuading poor Whites to hate poor Blacks. William Easterly
On the horizon loom a growing number of iconoclasts and Atheists, young black men and women who can read think and ask questions; and who impertinently demand to know why Negroes should revere a god that permits them to be lynched, Jim-Crowed, and disenfranchised. George Samuel Schuyler
In all things that are purely social we can be as separate as the fingers yet as one hand in all things essential to mutual progress.. Booker T. Washington
Now there will be suspicion hatred, and intolerance between those of Japanese ancestry ... and the other natives. There will be divisions among the Japanese Americans themselves, because some are citizens by right of birth while those born in Japan are subjects of the Mikado. The Japanese Americans are overwhelmingly loyal, but they have always borne the burden of white American suspicion, and that burden will increase. Thousands may be penned in camps. George Samuel Schuyler
Stated briefly, the problem confronting the colored peoples of the world is how to live in freedom, peace and security without being invaded, subjugated, expropriated, persecuted and humiliated by Caucasians justifying their actions by the myth of racial superiority.. George Samuel Schuyler
You start out in 1954 by saying, 'Nigger, nigger, nigger.' By 1968 you can't say 'nigger' – that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights, and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. Lee Atwater
[Whites] must reassert our identity and our solidarity, and we must do so in explicitly racial terms through the articulation of a racial consciousness as whites. The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people, nor is there any reason to believe that civilization can be successfully transmitted to a different people. Samuel Todd Francis
All whites benefitted from American slavery. John Hope Franklin
We can't ignore the fact that this country has a legacy of racism....We cannot be a leader in the 21st century if a significant portion of our population feels locked out of the future. Marco Rubio
The major difference lies in the parties' recruitment of female candidates. Recruitment was much more likely to shape women's candidacy decisions than men's, recruitment by party leaders being crucial, with Republicans less likely to recruit women than are Democrats. Karen Beckwith
The destinies of the two races, in this country, are indissolubly linked together, and the interests of both require that the common government of all shall not permit the seeds of race hate to be planted under sanction of law. John Marshall Harlan
Workers of the World Unite, and Fight for a White South Africa Anonymous
To suppose that the races of Africa are in any sense the equals of men of European descent, so far as government, as society, as the higher interests of civilization are concerned, is really, I think, an absurdity. Arthur Balfour
There must be a just native policy or the white man would go under in South Africa. Walter Ernest Mortimer Stanford
The thing that should be used very freely is the lash, for it is bodily pain the native fears. He fears nothing else. E.A.O. Schwikkard
Certainly let the black man have the franchise on the same terms as the white man, but while a Kaffir may make as good a Prime Minister as Lord Beaconsfield, for at least the next hundred years we shall not choose to be ruled by him. Anthony Trollope
We should be lords over them…these are the politics of South Africa. Cecil Rhodes
I am astonished at the strong feeling of dislike and contempt—I might almost say hatred—which the bulk of the whites have for their black neighbours. James Bryce

I beg that some shadow of a colour bar, some little inequality between white and black before the law be retained. Johannes Stephanus Maritz
As a body they are ignorant and wicked. Without schools, without teachers, without ministers—what will become of them? Daniel Lindley
It is not slave emancipation, but the fact that blacks are being placed on an equal footing with Christians, contrary to the laws of God and the natural distinction of race and religion. Anna Steenkamp
The settlers are people of the worst description who enticed the Hottentots to work for bad wine and worse wages. Richard Collins
The Dutch Reformed Church had begun that process of adapting theology to suit the interests of its members, which was to culminate in its blessing apartheid, by discouraging conversions which would bring the obligation of receiving non—Europeans as full members of the community. Frank Welsh
Learning to live with offence is the price of living in a diverse society. Irshad Manji
We repudiate the rights of a privileged class, and uphold the rights of a privileged race. Amelia Lambrick; Hypatia

Never should a believer kill a believer; but by mistake. Muhammad
Believe no one unless he follows your religion Muhammad
Don't take Jews or Christians for friends. If you do, then Allah will consider you to be one of them…. Muslims that make friends with disbelievers will face a doom prepared for them by Allah Muhammad
The Jewish religion is not extrinsic to us but in a certain way intrinsic to our own religion. With Judaism, therefore, we have a relationship which we do not have with any other religion. You are our dearly beloved brothers, and, in a certain way, it can be said that you are our elder brothers. John Paul II; Giovanni Battista Montini
There is hardly any other sphere in which prejudice and superstition of the most horrific kind have been retained so long as in that of women, and just as it must have been an inexpressable relief for humanity when it shook off the burden of religious prejudice and superstition, I think it will be truly glorious when women become real people and have the whole world open before them. Isak Dinesen
We were received as celebrities….All we had to do was show ourselves as examples, and Blacks would switch to Pepsi…. The KKK and the other people would come and smear mud on our Pepsi Displays claiming that we were taking good jobs away from white people. Jean Emmons
Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit, opinion has drawn indelible lines of distinction between them. Thomas Jefferson
I will not condone murder, therefore I disobey and continue to disobey Salazar., My desire is to be with God against men, rather than with men against God., If thousands of Jews can suffer because of one Catholic (Hitler), then surely it is permitted for one Catholic to suffer for so many Jews. Aristides de Sousa Mendes
Is it not because there reigns in the breast of many who are leaders a most unrighteous, unbecoming, and impure black principle, and as corrupt and unholy as it can be--while these very same unfeeling, self-esteemed characters pretend to take the skin as a pretext to keep us from our unalienable and lawful rights? William Apess
If he presents himself to vote, he runs a risk to his life. Oppressed, he can complain, but if he finds only whites among his judges… His son is excluded from the school where the descendants of Europeans come to be instructed. In theaters he cannot buy for the price of gold the right to be placed at the side of one who was his master; in hospitals he lies apart. The black is permitted to beseech the same God as whites, but not to pray to him at the same alter. Alexis de Tocqueville
…I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and the black races…nor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry Abraham Lincoln
Can we, as a nation, continue together permanently together, forever, half slave, and half free? Abraham Lincoln
I fear that the Polish clergy are fundamentally anti-Semitic. Victor Cavendish-Bentinck
They (negroes) had for more than a century before the Declaration of Independence been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit. He was bought and sold and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic whenever a profit could be made by it. Roger B. Taney
A man without honour is one who steals or deceives people, but he remains an honourable man even if he has sexual relations with three-quarters of the earth's women. As for a woman, she may kill or steal, but she will be considered honourable so long as she preserves her hymen, without which she loses all honour Khaled Montasser
It is rather ironic that society denies women certain rights under the pretext that they are emotional beings, and may become irrational when under pressure, while resorting to the emotions argument as an excuse for men's behaviour in honour crimes. Hoda Badran
Bigotry is the disease of ignorance, of morbid minds. Thomas Jefferson
The US is a difficult partner, but an indispensable one. Everyone who have had to do with US politicians and diplomats knows they aren't easy to deal with. That is because of their immense sense of power. But an alliance with the US is absolutely necessary because of our relations with, on the one hand, Germany and France, and, on the other, Russia. Lech Kaczynski
There will be no forced integration in Virginia. If Federal troops are sent into Virginia, they will patrol the halls of empty schools. James Lindsay Almond Jr.
It always has been, and always will be the position of The Independent that the white folks will prepare Jim Crow accommodations for Negroes just so long as the race produces a Jim Crow leadership. Men would not make cotton, corn and other commodities to sell if there was no market for them; and in like manner, the white man would not offer the Negro second class or Jim Crow accommodations if the Negro would not accept them; and the Negro may expect to be Jim Crowed, buzzard-roosted, discriminated against, kicked about, kicked off the street cars and hauled on elevators with trash and garbage, boxes and plunder, so long as he submits to such conditions and grins at the white man with his hat in his hand. The Independent is informed that Billy Sunday will preach to the Jim Crow Negroes of Atlanta in the Jim Crow meeting provided for Negroes only in his tabernacle Monday night. Now, the gospel of Jesus Christ knows no color line. It is as susceptible to the black man as the white man. Jesus died for all; not for the white folk or for the black folk, but for every man who would seek him diligently in spirit and truth; and, if Billy Sunday can’t preach to Negroes and white folks under the same tent, at the same time, then he ought not to preach to either Benjamin Jefferson Davis Sr.
For all Sunday’s denouncing of sins, he never mentioned rotten, stinking, hell-born race prejudice. It is pitiable when we think of the thousands of white men in this country, claiming to be ministers of the gospel,—claiming to be ambassadors of God, representatives of Jesus Christ; and yet sitting down quietly in the midst of this spreading leprosy of race prejudice, and doing nothing to stay its ravages, content to have it spread, and to curse, as it is doing, both races,—embittering the Negro and debasing the white man. Francis J. Grimke
Abraham Lincoln, 1809-1865, 16th President of the United States (Republican, IL)One man's rights should not be sacrificed for another's prejudices. ... Henry Hugh Proctor
It does not accord with the policy of the United States to acknowledge any monarchial Government erected on the ruins of any republican Government in America ... House of Representatives
I have huge debts, and know of no other way to resolve them than to re-enter the slave trade. John Brown
If you are a Christian, you are in danger. Even if you are an atheist, you are in danger, and if you decide to convert to Islam, this will not save you, either, because traditional Islam is inimical to the conditions and objectives set by them [the terrorists]. If you are prepared to become a most radical Islamist and are prepared to circumcise yourself, I invite you to come to Moscow. I will recommend having the operation done in such a way that nothing will grow for you there anymore. Vladimir Putin
Instead of celebrating the richness of our diverse cultures, our distinguishing features became cruel dividing walls to keep us apart in ministering to the affairs of our common home Vijay Singh
Why are Indo-Fijians supposed to be good at managing businesses but are not to be allowed to manage the biggest business of all, the government of the country? Why? Oh why? Vijay Singh
One of the most disruptive forces in politics is the feeling that wealth is concentrated in the hands of an alien people. Vijay Singh
Great powers engage. Chuck Hagel
The first thing a diplomat has to do is understand the domestic politics of foreign states. John Brady Kiesling
About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population, and it is an undue tax on even the proverbial patience of my countrymen. Mohandas K. Gandhi
Diplomacy was the only protection we had against war; and its achievements were of the utmost importance and value to the human race. Robert Cecil; Edgar Algernon Robert Gascoyne-Cecil
The old diplomat liked to move with deliberation, in secret, following well-established traditions and working through what he loved to describe as "the usual channels". To him, the open debate carried on, not by professional diplomats, but by politicians and statesmen having little regard for the use of the technical phraseology of diplomacy and intent merely on reaching results which would make diplomacy unnecessary, was offensive to all his instincts. Robert Cecil; Edgar Algernon Robert Gascoyne-Cecil
The price of freedom is less than the cost of repression. W. E. B. Du Bois
The problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color-line. W. E. B. Du Bois
Muslims are like wild dogs. You can't deal with them, you can only kill them. Zeljko Raznatovic; Arkan
I am not . . . in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them . . . to intermarry with white people. Abraham Lincoln
Was it the intention of the framers . . . to forbid the states to enact and enforce segregation statutes? If one goes to the historical materials with this specific question, the only answer is in the negative. The framers did not intend or expect then and there to outlaw segregation, which, of course, was a practice widely prevalent in the North. Alexander M. Bickel

I want a fair housing bill. We’ve got to end this Goddamn discrimination against Negroes. Until people, whether they’re purple, brown, black, yellow, red, green, or whatever – live together, they’ll never know they have the same hopes for their children, the same fears, troubles, woes, ambitions. Lyndon B. Johnson
Niggah! Niggah! Niggah! That’s all they said to me all day. Hell, there’s one thing they’d better know. If I don’t achieve anything else while I’m President, I intend to make it impossible for people to come here and shout “Niggah! Niggah! Niggah! to me and the American people. Lyndon B. Johnson
I don’t want American citizens killing American citizens. Lyndon B. Johnson
Americans should be free to make their own choice of life styles and private habits without being subject to discrimination or persecution. David Ginsburg (lawyer)
No otherwise qualified handicapped individual in the United States shall, solely by reason of his handicap, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. United States Congress
Title IX is the law of the land. It’s yours to obey and mine to enforce. Joseph A. Califano Jr.
It is time to drop the negative attitudes towards Israel, and relations with it. The basic value of the peace accord between Egypt and Israel lies in the fact that it expunges the term 'prohibition' or 'taboo,' which was created in the past by Arab policies towards Israel, and which turned relations with Israel into an abomination that could not be allowed. Hazem Abd Al-Rahman
Racism, n. Egotism taking the form of a delusion that one's own race is less depraved and idiotic than the criminal tendencies and gross stupidity exhibited by another. Jonathan Hayward
I can no longer be content now with the condemnations and solidarity pledges of political rulers. I want results. France's Muslims as a whole have the feeling they are considered second-class citizens Abdellah Boussouf
Arab women are sacrificed on the alters of God and Money from the moment of birth to the hour of death. Nawal El Saadawi
Our schools are more segregated today than they have ever been since 1968. The schools that I visit hardly have any white students…. Schools that had desegregated, are now resegregating. Jonathan Kozol
Hereafter no State court or court of the United States shall admit Chinese to citizenship. United States
Muslims’ Road Saudi Arabia
We shall not build, in our cities or in their neighborhood, new monasteries, Churches, convents, or monks' cells, nor shall we repair, by day or by night, such of them as fall in ruins or are situated in the quarters of the Muslims. We shall not manifest our religion publicly nor convert anyone to it. We shall not prevent any of our kin from entering Islam if they wish it. We shall show respect toward the Muslims, and we shall rise from our seats when they wish to sit. We shall not mount on saddles, nor shall we gird swords nor bear any kind of arms nor carry them on our persons. We shall not sell fermented drinks. We shall not display our crosses or our books in the roads or markets of the Moslems We shall not bury our dead near the Moslems Umar I; Umar Ibn Al-Khattab
When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews. Martin Luther King Jr.
Every day that America was segregated was a day when America was not following our founding ideals. George W. Bush
To my great regret I have learned that Jews generally, and particularly those of the country, not only resent these publications as promoting anti-Semitism, but regard me as their enemy…. Had I appreciated even the general nature, to say nothing of the details of those utterances, I would have forbidden their circulation without a moment's hesitation. I admire the Jewish culture for its vast contributions to civilization, and for its sobriety, diligence, benevolence, and unselfish interest in public welfare. Henry Ford
In our present national and international emergency, I consider it of importance that I clarify some general misconceptions concerning my attitude towards my fellow citizens of Jewish faith. I do not subscribe or support, directly or indirectly, any agitation which would promote antagonism against my Jewish fellow-citizens. I consider that the hate-mongering prevalent for some time in this country against the Jew is of a distinct disservice to our country, and to the peace and welfare of humanity…. It is my sincere hope that now in this country and throughout the world, when this war is finished and peace once again established, hatred of the Jew, commonly known as anti-Semitism.. .will cease for all time. Henry Ford
The French banks immediately received a visit from Nazi officials, commission. But the U.S. banks didn't, and yet they obeyed just as much as the French banks, declaring Jewish accounts at a time when they could have abstained. Claire Andrieu
Backward Classes like Pawar, Marar, Lodhi, Kasar etc. should be kept involved in the religious affairs so that their attention be kept away from political rights and they always remain slaves and supporters of Brahmanism. The political consciousness that has developed among the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Backward Classes and Religious Minorities has threatened the leadership of Brahmanism. Hence, such a confusion and conflict be created in them, that they keep on fighting among themselves…. Friends, the whole thing must be implemented secretly. This letter should not reach in the hands of lower castes. It is a secret letter. Brahmin Samaj
Let the women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but let them be in subjection, as also saith the law. And if they would learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home I Book of Corinthians
We consider it of divine institution and not to be abolished until the curse pronounced on Ham shall have been removed from his descendants. Brigham Young
Every evil and hardship that exists and has existed on the land of Palestine was caused by the Jews, they initiate evil because they have sick-hearts and evil intentions and souls…. The arrogance of the Jews has transgressed all limits; they have become obsessed with murdering and shedding the pure blood of innocent people; they have no conscience, no values and no sense of humanity in them. They are committing massacres in cities and refugee camps very frequently; they are deliberately mutilating bodies thinking that this will end the determination and will of the Muslim nation and to struggle on. Abdul Baari Ath-Thubayti
We will definitely not allow the killing of our Iraqi Ambassador to deny us the right to have an ambassador. Ahmed Nazif
How could I love a faith that makes me a second class citizen? Asra Nomani
Negro members shall be treated as white members Pennsylvania Quaker Church
It is probably true to say that the largest scope for changes still lies in men's attitude to women, and in women's attitude to themselves Vera Brittain
Lies surfaced about Jews being murdered here and there, and the Holocaust. And, of course, they are all lies and unfounded claims. No Chelmno, no Dachau, no Auschwitz! They were disinfection sites... Issam Sissalem
Treat him as a man; go into his home and learn of his social conditions; learn of his cares, his troubles, and his hopes for the future; gain his confidence; open the doors of industry to him; let the word “negro,” “colored,” and “black” be stricken from all the organizations enumerated in the federation of labor. George Henry White
The Negro Has No Fear Anonymous
Spent the morning with Prof. W. H. Ferris, literary editor of The Negro World at the office discussing the Press story, from Washington, D.C., concerning the unAmerican influences which are at the bottom of the Negro's unrest. Prof. Ferris attributed the unrest to be due to the constant [ag]itation of the Southerner and that the hope of the Negro was in the Socialist Party. He was of the opinion that Marcus Garvey should not have made the statements which he made at the big meeting. FBI
If I should lose on the real issues, I shall return to my seat in the Senate satisfied that I tried my best and was fairly judged. But if this election was decided on the basis that forty million Americans lost their chance of being President on the day they were baptized, then it is the whole nation that will be the loser in the eyes of Catholics and non-Catholics around the world, in the eyes of history and in the eyes of our own people John F. Kennedy
We represent the majority of the people in Alabama who hate niggerism, Catholicism, Judaism, and all the isms of the whole world. Robert Creel
I don't believe in segregation. I believe in slavery. Robert Creel
backlash Eliot Janeway
The Senator’s objections to “legislating morality,” his criticisms of the Supreme Court, and his advocacy of “states’ rights” all became the shorthand for an anti-civil rights appeal -- and were clearly understood as such by voters in the North and South. Ripon Society
The existence of laws in the States where the newly emancipated negroes reside, which discriminated with gross injustice and hardship against them as a class, was the evil to be remedied …. The one pervading purpose, was protection of the newly-made freeman and citizen from the oppression of those who had formerly exercised unlimited dominion over him. Samuel Freeman Miller
The Master will allow him no home, that he may become a vagrant. Becoming a vagrant, he will arrest him as a vagabond, and visit him with imprisonment and stripes . . . He will shut him off from the courts, seal his mouth as a witness. Daniel Clark
We must keep this a White Man's country. Only by doing this can we be faithful to the foundations laid by our forefathers. This Republic was established by White Men. It was established for White Men. Our forefathers never intended that it should fall into the hands of an inferior race. Every effort to wrest from White Men the management of its affairs in order to transfer it to the control of blacks or any other color, or to permit them to share in its control, is an invasion of our sacred Constitutional prerogatives and a violation of divinely established laws Ku Klux Klan
The general interest both of the white man and of the negroes requires that he should be kept as near to the condition of slavery as possible’ Edmund Rhett
The purpose of the bill . . . is to destroy all these discriminations. Lyman Trumbull
I know that there is an objection to the association of colored children with white children in the same schools. This prejudice exists in my own State. It would be impossible to carry a proposition to educate the few colored children that now live in that State in the same school houses with white children. James Harlan
The white race . . . will be proprietors of the land, and the blacks its cultivators; such is their destiny. Garrett Davis
True Americanism is opposed utterly to any political divisions resting on race and religion. To the race or to the sect, which as such attempts to take possession of the politics or the public education of the country, true Americanism says, Hands off! Henry Cabot Lodge
Our immediate task is to remove the last remnants of the barriers which stand between millions of our citizens and their birthright. There is no justifiable reason for discrimination because of ancestry or religion or race or color. Harry S Truman
Millions of Americans, too, face the intolerable fact that because of their race or their color or the way they choose to worship God, they are denied rights which are their birthrights and which, by American principle and law, are their just due. Thomas E. Dewey
So we find no statutory authority for the admission of females to the bar of any court of this state. And, with all the respect and sympathy for this lady which all men owe to all good women, we cannot regret that we do not. We cannot but think the common law wise in excluding women from the practice of the law... The law of nature destines and qualifies the female sex for the bearing and nurture of the children of our race and for the custody of the homes of the world and their maintenance in love and honor. And all lifelong callings of women, inconsistent with these radical and sacred duties of their sex, as is the profession of the law, are departures from the order of nature; and when voluntary, treason against it... Edward G. Ryan
We live … in an age of progressive democracy. ... In its political effects it discards the prerogative of a few to govern and looks to the rights of all. And whether you deem it practicable or not, you, who prattle about democracy, this spirit is opening a grand law of humanity more comprehensive than all others, that looks farther than the skin to say who shall have rights and who shall be maintained in the free enjoyment of what the God of nature has given them. You cannot guide this tendency of the age to sympathize alone with the serfs of Europe and the barbarians of Asia and leave untouched and unnoticed those in our midst who suffer either from the oppression of laws or for want of their protection. Charles Burchard
I rejoice that, in the first attempt of the slave-hunters to convert our jail into a slave-pen and our citizens into slave-catchers, they have signally failed, and that it has been decided by the spontaneous uprising and sovereign voice of the people, that no human being can be dragged into bondage from Milwaukee. Sherman M. Booth
They---the northern states---will never consent, that a slave-owner, his agent, or an officer of the United States, armed with process to arrest a fugitive from service, is clothed with entire immunity from state authority; to commit whatever crime or outrage against the laws of the state; that their own high prerogative writ of habeas corpus shall be annulled, their authority defied, their officers resisted, the process of their own courts contemned, their territory invaded by federal force, the houses of their citizens searched, the sanctuary or their homes invaded, their streets and public places made the scenes of tumultuous and armed violence, and state sovereignty succumb--paralyzed and aghast--before the process of an officer unknown to the constitution and irresponsible to its sanctions. At least, such shall not become the degradation of Wisconsin, without meeting as stern remonstrance and resistance as I may be able to interpose, so long as her people impose upon me the duty of guarding their rights and liberties, and maintaining the dignity and sovereignty of their state. Abram D. Smith
The Fugitive Slave Act is a wicked and cruel enactment. Let the federal government return to the exercise of the just powers conferred by the Constitution and few, very few, will be found to disturb the tranquility of the nation. But until this is done, I solemnly believe that there will be no peace for the state or the nation, but that agitation, acrimony and hostility will mark our progress, even if we escape a more dread calamity, which I will not even mention. Abram D. Smith
Freemen, to the rescue! Sherman M. Booth
To leave Indian tribes in possession of their country is to leave the country a wilderness. John Marshall
Racial affiliations are not severed by migration. The Japanese race is an enemy race and while many second - and third-generation Japanese born on United States soil, possessed of United States citizenship, have become 'Americanized,' the racial strains are undiluted John L. DeWitt
A Jap’s a Jap. It makes no difference whether he is an American citizen or not. I don’t want any of them . . . John L. DeWitt
Opinions founded on prejudice are always sustained with the greatest violence. Jewish Proverb
White Power! We’re going to save the white race. George Lincoln Rockwell
I will kill every Jew, Catholic and Negro. George Lincoln Rockwell
The Moslems who did not succeed in escaping [the city of Bitlis] were put to death... Grace H. Knapp
It is unlawful to designate Armenian properties as abandoned because they did not leave their properties voluntarily. The Armenians were "forcibly" removed from their homes and exiled. Now the government is selling their possessions. Nobody can sell my property if I am unwilling to sell it. This is atrocious. Grab my arm, eject me from my village, then sell my goods and properties? Such a thing can never be permissible. Neither the conscience of the Ottomans nor the law can allow it. Ahmed Riza
Confidentially the State Department is in a bind. Our task would be simple if the reports of the atrocities could be declared untrue or even exaggerated but the evidence, alas, is irrefutable and the Secretary of State wants to avoid giving the impression that while the United States is willing to intervene actively to protect its commercial interests, it is not willing to move on behalf of the Christian minorities. Allen Welsh Dulles
I know from reports of my own officers who served with General Dro that defenseless villages were bombarded and then occupied, and any inhabitants that had not run away were brutally killed, the village pillaged, and all the livestock confiscated, and then the village burned. This was carried out as a regular systematic getting-rid-of the Muslims Mark Lambert Bristol
The tale is one of an evil time, When souls were fettered and thought was crime, And heresy's whisper above its breath Meant shameful scourging and bonds and death! John Greenleaf Whittier
It is in our blood to hate the Turks. However, we hate Bulgarians and Greeks also. The Jews like Turks, but they hate Arabs. The Arabs, in their turn, are not in favor with the Turks. And the level of hatred is rising... Narek Mesropian
I did what I was supposed to do. Pedro Menendez de Aviles
If you can point out anything in error, I’ll be glad to repudiate it for free. Stetson Kennedy
There were too many lawmen who were Klansmen. The Hoover FBI was not the least bit interested in what I could tell them about the Klan. So I went to Drew Pearson who had a coast to coast radio program and gave him the names of people who were Klan members and attended meetings. He read some names each week, and those men never showed up again. Stetson Kennedy
I concluded that infiltration of the Klan was the only way to get evidence that would stand up in court. There was no one else around to do it. Stetson Kennedy
The teachings of Christ do not accommodate themselves to segregation and discrimination against Blacks. Sheldon Hackney
I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate. Martin Luther King Jr.

I cannot allow the occasion to pass without very sincerely thanking Mr. Baxter for his treatment of his subject as affecting the woman, and particularly for his able and singularly luminous expression of the instinct in the woman of any race which makes for racial purity—an instinct ... as dear ... as life itself, and ... being so, should be equally dear to the nation to which she belongs. Marie E. J. Pitt
The worst disease from which the society of our nation suffers is . . . the treatment of the Negro. Albert Einstein
Hurricane Katrina was a disaster. It exposed the soft underbelly of America when it comes to race and class. Ray Nagin
The first thing we learned growing up was to hate Jews. I’ll never forgot the first song I learned in school, ‘Arabs our beloved and Jews our dogs.’ I used to wonder at that time who the Jews were, but repeated the words with the rest of the kids without any knowledge of the meaning. Walid Shoebat

During those twelve hour nights we’d chat about the motormen, conductors, guards etc. whose conditions were even worse. They had to work a ‘spread’ of 16 hours each day in order to get 10 hours pay. Negro workers could get jobs only as porters. They were subjected to treatment that makes Little Rock and Birmingham seem liberal and respectable by comparison … I also saw Catholic ticket agents fired by Catholic bosses for going to mass early in the morning while the porter ‘covered’ the booth for half an hour. Protestant bosses fired Protestant workers for similar crimes — going to church. The Jewish workers had no trouble with the subway bosses — Jews were denied employment in the transit lines. Michael J. Quill

Take that bone out of your nose and call me back Rush Limbaugh
In the South the white men used to call all Black men “boy” until they got to be old enough to call them “uncle.” It was sex-the feat of sexual competition. When they used to get liquored up and talk they would always say, “The schoolroom leads to the bedroom” to justify school segregation. Karl Flemming
This is probably the greatest thing that I have ever accomplished but I fear that we Democrats have lost the South for the rest of my lifetime and probably you lifetime as well. Lyndon B. Johnson

The system of stereotypes may be the core of our personal tradition, the defenses of our position in society…They may not be a complete picture of the world, but they are a picture of a possible world to which we are adapted. In that world people and things have their well-known places, and do certain expected things. Walter Lippmann
As to the lynchings of negroes, by torture and burning alive, professing Christians in the South and West have emulated the horrible example of the Apaches, Comanches, and other Indian savages of a former generation Howard Association
These barbarities [American lynchings] have found many apologists, on the ground that the negroes are licentious and dishonest--as, indeed, many of them are. But who set them the example, and educated them in these vices? In too many cases the white population, and even their legal authorities. Howard Association
With most people, strangers are not only enemies, but inferiors. Robert G. Ingersoll
It did not improve the feeling of the defeated classes of the South to contemplate, at first, the amendments of the Constitution of the United States, which not only established the freedom of the slave, but established his citizenship beyond question, and putting into his hands the ballot, making him the political equal of his former owner. Objecting not only to the law, but to that practice under it, … the former master class became greatly exasperated, and resolving, if possible, to overcome this condition of things, organized bands of "White-liners," "Ku-Klux," and "Bull-dozers," and entered upon that systematic warfare upon Republicans, white and colored, which, resulting in violence, intimidation and murder, has necessitated the use of the army to maintain the peace, and protect the loyal people of the South against that domestic violence, which at times seemed to threaten utter destruction, interfering even with legislatures, and disturbing the operations of the Government. John Mercer Langston
I was outvoted, having only reason on my side, and being opposed by a triple-headed monster, that shed the baneful influence of avarice, prejudice, and pusillanimity in all our assemblies John Laurens
If the power exists in the present case it cannot be restricted to this alone. The Committee may distribute all the children into classes, according to mere discretion. They may establish a separate school for Irish or Germans… They may separate Catholics from Protestants … separate different sects of Protestants … establish a separate school for the rich, that the delicate taste of this favored class may not be offended by the humble garments of the poor … All this, and much more, can be done in the exercise of that high-handed power which makes a discrimination on account of race or color Charles Sumner

Ours is a capitalist society. It is therefore inevitable that, in part- and I repeat- in part- we must address this goal of deracialisation within the context of the property relations characteristics of a capitalist economy. Thabo Mbeki
As part of the realization of the aim to eradicate racism in our country, we must strive to create and strengthen a black capitalist class… because we come from among the black oppressed, many among us feel embarrassed to state this goal as nakedly as we should. Thabo Mbeki

These circumstances of Cruelty to these People render the Persons who exercise it disagreeable, nay odious to me. When a Set of People can sit down enjoying all the Luxuries of Life without feeling the least Sensation or Compunction for the Sufferings of those poor Wretches whose Lives are rendered Miserable and Constitutions destroyed for those Purposes, I must conclude them Obdurate, Selfish, and Unfeeling to the greatest Degree imaginable. At what an Expense of Life and Happiness do we eat Rice and Sugar! One thing more I must add, that their Diet is almost entirely on Rice and sweet Potatoes as they are allowed Meat but once a Year. Stephen De Lancey

A dissolution of the Union for the cause of slavery would be followed by a servile war in the slave-holding States, combined with a war between the two severed portions of the Union. It seems to me that its result must be the extirpation of slavery from this whole continent. John Quincy Adams

The very word woman in the writings of the church fathers stood for the basest of temptations....

Jane Addams

This is in part because of the government's criminal negligence; has it not permitted them [Christian Copts] to build new churches, though there are more than enough of them in a country where over ninety percent of the inhabitants are Muslims; has the regime not let them parade their religious affiliation in public (for example, crosses on car stickers and dresses), which is a sheer provocation to Muslims?

For racial segregation is merely an outward manifestation of an inner state of mind. Whether this state of mind is proper or improper is immaterial.

Diplomacy is to do and say, The nastiest things in the nicest way. Isaac Goldberg
Nowhere is woman treated according to the merit of her work …. It is therefore almost inevitable that she should pay for right to exist, to keep a position in whatever line, with sex favors. Thus it is merely a question of degree whether she sells herself to one man, in or out of marriage, or to many men. Emma Goldman
I can't see any way in the world that being gay can cause damage to somebody else. Barry Goldwater
The military didn't want blacks in integrated units, or women, and now it doesn't want gays. Barry Goldwater

The New York City Police should take machine guns to the Gay Pride Parade and mow them down. Bob Grant
A rigid system of selection through the elimination of those who are weak or unfit—in other words social failures—would allow us to solve the whole question in one hundred years, as well as enable us to get rid of the undesirables who crowd our jails, hospitals, and insane asylums…. [Forced sterilization] can be applied to an ever widening circle of social discards, beginning always with the criminal, the diseased, and the insane, and extending gradually to types which may be called weaklings rather than defectives, and perhaps ultimately to worthless race types. Madison Grant
I recognize most thoroughly the right of woman to choose her own sphere of activity and usefulness, and to evoke its proper limitations. If she sees fit to navigate vessels, print newspapers, frame laws, select rulers—any or all of these—I know of no principle that justifies man in interposing any impediment to her doing so. Horace Greeley
Confidence is as essential in permanent relations between Governments as it is between great commercial houses. Edward Grey; Viscount Fallodon

Not only do most people accept violence if it is perpetuated by legitimate authority, they also regard violence against certain kinds of people as inherently legitimate, no matter who commits it. Edgar Z. Friedenberg
One thing you can say in favor of the globalization system is that it doesn’t discriminate—it leaves both the weak and the powerful feeling a loss of control and under the thumb of elected and at times uncontrollable forces. Thomas Friedman
Women are now in the situation of the mass of mankind a few years since, when science and learning were in the hands of priests, and property was held by vassalage. Matilda Joslyn Gage

I am absolutely opposed to any discrimination on account of race, color, or religion. John F. Fitzgerald

Poor whites have been pitted against poor blacks to assuage the conscience of the affluent. Louise Day Hicks
Everywhere in the world discrimination between yellow and white remained, as in the rejection of immigration to California and the white-only policy in Australia. These were sufficient grounds for the indignation of the Japanese people. Hirohito
The book is my Bible. Adolf Hitler

Distrust naturally creates distrust. John Jay
[Describing slavery:] ... a cruel war against human nature itself. Thomas Jefferson
Government, as well as religion, has furnished its schisms, its persecutions, and its devices for fattening idleness on the earnings of the people. It has its hierarchy of emperors, kings, princes, and nobles, as that has of popes, cardinals, archbishops, bishops, and priests. In short, cannibals are not to be found in the wilds of America only, but are reveling on the blood of every living people. Thomas Jefferson
If his wife perseveres, she must eat her soup at home. Thomas Jefferson
Nature has given to our black brethren talents equal to those of any other color of men; and that the appearance of the want of them is owing merely to the degraded condition of their existence. Thomas Jefferson
The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this and learn to imitate it, for man is an imitative animal. Thomas Jefferson
We are truly to be pitied. Thomas Jefferson

If you are black the only roads into the mainland of American life are through subservience, cowardice, and loss of manhood. LeRoi Jones

A bad Muslim is an anti-American Muslim. A good Muslim is a pro-American Muslim. This is what seems to be the operational definition. Mahmood Mamdani
So long as the slave remains ignorant and docile and contented he is taken care of, humored and spoken of with a contemptuous, compassionate kindness. But from the moment he exhibits the attributes of a rational being, from the moment his intellect seems likely to come into the most distant competition with that of whites, the most deadly hatred springs up—not in the black, but in his oppressors. Harriet Martineau
Affirmative action takes many forms in our society. White fraternity members help others with jobs. Robert Maynard

Newcomb, United States Revenue Cutter Service, above set forth, the thanks of Congress be extended to him and to his officers and men of the HUDSON; and that a gold medal of honor be presented to Lieutenant Newcomb, and silver medal of honor to each of his crew who served with him at Cardenas . William McKinley
Why should we employ women when men are out of work? Gennady Melikyan
We’re wise enough to know that black bigotry is just as evil as white bigotry. Kwasi Mifume
The principle which regulates the existing social relations between the two sexes—the legal subordination of one sex to the other—is wrong itself, and now one of the chief hindrances to human improvement John Stuart Mill
What women by nature cannot do, it is quite superfluous to forbid them from doing. What they can do, but not so well as the men who are their competitors, competition suffices to exclude them from; since nobody asks for protective duties and bounties in favor of women; it is only asked that the present bounties and protective duties in favor of men should be recalled. John Stuart Mill
We want to keep this a white man's country. Bert Miller
Where more is meant than meets the ear. John Milton
Beware of bad Asians Daniel arap Moi
The Religion which you profess is an obstacle to the exercise of your consular functions. James Monroe
Over the last 40 years, more U. S. ambassadors than generals have been killed in the line of duty. But unlike this country's military, the U. S. Foreign Service is maligned, undercut and underutilized. Julia Moore
Racism is a disease which devalues the victim and corrupts the perpetrator. William 'Bill' Morris
If you're going to hold someone down you're going to have to hold onto the other end of the chain. You are confined by your own system of repression. Toni Morrison

The capacity of the crania of the Mongol, Indian and Negro, and all dark skinned races, is smaller than that of the pure white man. Samuel George Morton
The issue is whether or not Americans such as myself ... will have to suffer the indignity of being reminded time and time again that at one point in this country's history, we were human chattel.

Everyone is a prisoner of his own experience. No one can eliminate prejudices—just recognize them. Edward R. Murrow
You can legislate against discrimination, but you can't legislate compassion, understanding and good will. David Lam
Racism in our society is a motion for cloture. Accuse anybody of racism and it almost stops the debate. Richard Lamm
I should prefer the name Pioneer Foundation. While in itself this is a colorless term, it would be perfectly appropriate if this foundation should have for its purpose the maintenance of the pioneer traditions and the perpetuation of pioneer family-stocks and the hereditary qualities—physical, mental and spiritual—of the pioneer families of America. Harry Laughlin
Prevent the procreation of persons socially inadequate from defective inheritance, by authorizing and providing for eugenical sterilization of certain potential parents carrying degenerate hereditary qualities. Harry Laughlin
The taste of democracy becomes a bitter taste when the fullness of democracy is denied. Max Lerner
Think not, if you once enter on this career, that it can be limited to the Jew. What is my cast today, if you yield to this injustice, may tomorrow be that of the Roman Catholic or the Unitarian; the Presbyterian or the Methodist; the Episcopalian or the Baptist. There is but one safeguard; that is to be found in an honest, whole hearted, inflexible support of the wise, the just, the impartial guarantee of the Constitution. Uriah Phillips Levy
Which side is the federal government on? John Lewis
Be prepared for mood swings. Liberal Party
I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes. Abraham Lincoln
I can only trust in God I have made no mistake. It is now for the country and the world to pass judgment on it. Abraham Lincoln
I do not understand that because I do not want a Negro woman for a slave I must necessarily want her for a wife. My understanding is that I can just let her alone. Abraham Lincoln
My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and it I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. Abraham Lincoln
It [aviation] is a tool specially shaped for Western hands, a scientific art which others only copy in a mediocre fashion, another barrier between the teeming millions of Asia and the Grecian inheritance of Europe, one of those priceless possessions which permit the White race to live at all in a pressing sea of Yellow, Black, and Brown. Charles Lindbergh
Catholicism is among the arch enemies of America and our way of life and of the true faith. Harold Lindsell
Affirmative action is the majority’s constitutional prerogative, through the use of the democratic process—and a means of taking responsibility for the community’s past wrongdoing. Robert Justin Lipkin
The tendency of the casual mind is to pick out or stumble upon a sample which supports or defies its prejudices, and then to make it representative of a whole class. Walter Lippmann

Of all the bigotries that ravage the human temper there is none so stupid as the anti-Semitic. It has no basis in reason, it is not rooted in faith, it aspires to no ideal. David Lloyd George

Why can a Communist eat at a lunch counter in Selma, Alabama while a Black American veteran cannot? John F. Kennedy
A full commitment to integration means taking all reasonable steps to dismantle these barriers, even if this necessitates reforming long established practices that were not imposed with the intent to disadvantage the racial minorities but do so nonetheless. Randall Kennedy
This is a white man’s country and if the niggers don’t like it, put them on a rowboat and send them back to Africa to swing from coconut trees and eat one another. Horace King
The only way for a man to get ahead is to run faster than the fellow in front of him. Martin Luther King Jr.
Papists should be debarred from all public trust. William King

Diplomats tell lies to journalists and then believe what they read. Karl Kraus
Nations do pout.... It rarely means anything except to the pouters. John Krizay
Neither the crushing powers of the centralized State nor the teachings of mutual hatred ... could weed out the feeling of human solidarity, deeply lodged in men's understanding and heart, because it has been nurtured by all our preceding evolution. Peter Kropotkin
From the time we entered Texas, everywhere we go there’s the smell of hatred in the air – the arrogant hatred of whites, the silent hatred of blacks. Simone de Beauvoir
Prejudices of Political Economists against the Common Ownership in Land Nikolay Gavrilovich Chernyshevsky; Tchernishevsky
Because of unconquerable prejudice resulting from their color, [freed slaves] never could amalgamate with the free whites of this country. Henry Clay
The air is the only place to be free from prejudices. Bessie Coleman
I denounce the madness that has taken possession of the Nazis of Germany in these days of persecution of helpless, innocent Jews whose only offense is that they are members of the race of which Jesus … was a member. Michael Joseph Curley
Everybody has asked the question… “What shall we do with the Negro?” I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are wormeaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by nature's plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall. And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone! Frederick Douglass
We are a trading corporation, not a body of sectarian propagandists, and therefore discourage any intolerance. Dutch West India Company
Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander English Proverb or Saying
The Titanic was a great ship, but is was captained by one depicted as being arrogant, and warnings of an iceberg were not heeded. America is like that great ship. Unfortunately, at the helm may be a proud captain. And black people could become the iceberg that causes the sinking of this great ship called the United States of America. Louis Farrakhan
There was great persecution in many places, both by imprisoning, and by breaking up of meetings. At a meeting about seven miles from London, the rude people usually came out of several parishes round about, to abuse Friends, and often beat and bruised them exceedingly. One day they abused about eighty Friends that went to that meeting out of London, tearing their coats and cloaks from off their backs, and throwing them into ditches and ponds; and when they had besmeared them with dirt, they said they looked like witches. George Fox
If a white teach a free negro or a slave to write he is fined $500, and imprisoned at the discretion of the Court; if the offender be a colored man, bond or free, he may be fined or whipped at the discretion of the Court Georgia
it was decreed by the common consent of Christian folk that all Jews should utterly driven forth from their lands or cities. Thus they were held up to universal hatred and driven forth from the cities; Ralph Glaber

No Christian shall do the Jews any personal injury, except in executing the judgments of a judge, or deprive them of their possessions, or change the rights and privileges which they have been accustomed to have. During the celebration of their festivals, no one shall disturb them by beating them with clubs or by throwing stones at them. No one shall compel them to render any services except those which they have been accustomed to render. And to prevent the baseness and avarice of wicked men we forbid anyone to deface or damage their cemeteries or to extort money from them by threatening to exhume the bodies of their dead.... Innocent III
Irishmen and Irishwomen! treat the colored people as your equals, as brethren. Ireland
If this country is a melting pot, then either the Afro-American didn't get in the pot or he didn't get melted down. Thurgood Marshall
Devils are worse than Indians. Cotton Mather
The absolute basis of all prejudice is ignorance and generalization. Phil McGraw
Cairo had not yet become the stamping-ground of tourists. Foreigners were curiosities, and the true believer's hatred for the accursed Giaour, or "Christian dog," was something that he was very proud of. A fanatic was liable to make trouble at any moment. James Morris Morgan
a nation would not profit under a woman as its leader Muhammad
Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Koran and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn [criminals, polytheists, etc.] will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. Muhammad
This is a world in which only the strong and resolute nations survive, while the weak, especially the morally weak, who babble about brotherhood and peace, are biologically degenerate and doomed to extinction. Revilo P. Oliver
We shall never be able to think rationally about our own survival until we have the courage to say, in our own minds: We are Americans, White men of the West. This is our country because we took it from the Indians. And we have an unquestionable right to this country so long as we have the power and will to defend it. Revilo P. Oliver
A woman, then, should not be a busybody, meddling with matters outside her household concerns. Philo Judaeus
Feminized wimps need to be removed from our government, from our media, from our educational institutions, and replaced by real white men.... That'll be a tough job.... I don't really care how the job is done—whether the wimps all get machine-gunned and bulldozed into giant lime pits or whether their thinking is eventually straightened out by a program of prolonged trauma and privation William Pierce; Andrew Macdonald
The color of your skin is your uniform in this ultimate battle for the survival of the West. George Lincoln Rockwell
You should only get AIDS and die, you pig. Michael Savage
Danes should enjoy so much consideration in Norway, that one witness of them should invalidate ten of Northmen [Norwegians]. Sveyn I Forkbeard
Mr. President, I believe that we can supersede the Negro-Mania with the almost universal excitement of an Anti-Mormon Crusade ... and the pipings of Abolitionism will hardly be heard amidst the thunders of the storm we shall raise. Robert Tyler
Despite the advances in technology and communications that link us more closely than ever before, there remains the reality of division at so many levels in our world. We see these divides between rich and poor, between women and men, between different religions or ethnic groups, between citizens and migrants. We know as well that these divides are at the core of so many of today's conflicts. Mary Robinson
Always the man on the ground has feared the new comer because he did not understand him. If a white man went into the Congo, he would be hated and misunderstood. That is your lot here. You have a long, long road to travel, an arduous foe to fight, and that foe is prejudice, which we have always had with us. It may be, that without slavery, your race would never have had its chance for civilization. You might still be savages in Africa---and you might be better off there. But still I think that civilization is worth the price we have to pay for it. You'll have to work harder---harder than the white man---because you're on his home grounds....There is no inherent difference between your capacity for growth and that of any other man, whatever his color. Clarence Darrow
Bob, please get me the name of the Jews—you know the ones who give money to the democrats... Go after them … hang the kikes from the rafters. Richard Nixon
Integration is a plot of the Anti-Christ. Edwin A. Walker
His aim is to place the Negroes on equality with the white man—to have him eat at the same table, sit in the same pew, and vote at the same ballot box. He would appear to forget altogether the Creator himself made a distinction when he established the immovable barrier of color between the races. Chambersburg Valley Spirit
I don’t believe in Black majority rule ever—not even in 1000 years. Ian Smith
Crime and violence follow African Americans wherever they go. James Edwards
Mitt Romney is a Mormon, and don't let anybody tell you otherwise. Even though he talks about Jesus as his Lord and savior, he is not a Christian. Mormonism is not Christianity. Mormonism is a cult….It's a little hypocritical for the last eight years to be talking about how important it is for us to elect a Christian president and then turn around and endorse a non-Christian. Robert Jeffress
The moral influence of the Chief Magistrate of the United State would be, under Heaven, the best aid we could invoke for the protection of our persecuted brethren under the Mohammedan domain. Isaac Leeser
Americans feel horror … at the extravagant charges strikingly similar to those which less enlightened ages were made pretexts for the persecution and spoliation of these unfortunate people…. In America we place upon an equal footing the worshipers of God of every faith and form…. I speak on behalf of an oppressed and persecuted race, among whose kindred are found some of the most worthy and patriotic American citizens. Martin Van Buren
The “Blood Libel” has not the least foundation of truth…. Jews shall posses the same advantages and enjoy the same privileges as my other subjects. Abdulmecid I
The gallows and the stake await the Abolitionists who shall dare to appear in person among us Charleston Courier
The white men the Democrats of the South are sending to Congress are coming with hands reeking in human gore. Roscoe Conkling
… the admission, as a state, of California, from which we have been excluded by congressional agitation? Jefferson Davis
In the history of the world, slavery has been and still is the normal condition of most men; all the great accumulations of property have been the result of slavery, and civilization was the result of property…. art, literature, science, architecture, beautiful women, and gentlemen of leisure all depend upon the forced labor of masses of ignorant men whom to make free would be a social crime. Thomas Roderick Dew
The South came to adopt a social philosophy wonderfully like that of Germany …. Inequality became the natural order; slavery was accepted as a blessing from heaven; and masters of plantations became the supermen from whom ideas and good reasoning were confidently expected. William E. Dodd
It is a gross mistake to suppose that ' abolition' is the cause of dissolution between the north and the south. The Cavaliers, Jacobites, and Huguenots of the south naturally hate, contemn, and despise the Puritans who settled the north. The former are master races, the latter a slave race, the descendants of the Saxon serfs George Fitzhugh
One day God summoned the two sons of the first human couple. One of them was white, the other dark-skinned. Placing before them a heap of gold and a book, God ordered the dark-skinned brother, as being the elder, to choose one of the two. He chose the gold, so the younger brother received the book. An unknown force immediately transported the younger one with the book to a cold, distant country. But thanks to his book he became learned, terrifying and strong. As for the elder brother, he remained in his native country and lived long enough to see how superior science is to wealth.” Guinea Legend
At Geneva [Switzerland] the Israelites have addressed a petition to the council of state, to demand the free exercise of their worship: the council has refused. Let us hope that this refusal may not be final. Shall a Protestant republic be less tolerant than the autocrat of Russia? Isaac Leeser
The Catholic religion, which, as it is the only one that is true, cannot, without great injustice, be regarded as merely equal to other religions. Leo XIII
All Jews who may possess property, either in town or country, permanent or moveable, or rents, or interest, or any right involving shares in funded property, or leased landed property, must, within the term of three months from this day, dispose of it by a positive and real, and not by any pretended or factitious contract. Should this not be done within the time specified, the Holy Office is to sell the same by public auction No Hebrew, either male or female, shall frequent the houses of Christians, or maintain friendly relations with a Christian man or woman Vicenzo Salina
Is not the meager, thin, long, chop-fallen, half-starved savage, as you find him a prisoner of war in negro land, a barbarian, compared to the happy, contented, well developed, strong, hearty, well clothed, well fed, negro slave in his Christianized state of American Slavery? George Francis Train
Slavery to the Negro is a stepping-stone from African barbarism to Christian civilization George Francis Train
The American who can read this list without a blush of shame must be more blood-thirsty than an Apache Indian John Edward Bruce
The contempt we have been taught to entertain for the blacks, makes us fancy many things that are founded neither in reason nor experience Alexander Hamilton
Screw state! State’s always on the side of the blacks. The hell with them… I’m getting tired of this business of letting these Africans eat a hundred thousand people and do nothing about it. Richard Nixon
So far as this particular negro is personally concerned, he may be dismissed as beneath contempt. There is a far graver side to the matter. This negro is regarded as a leader; he both reflects the sentiments of his race, and his utterance react upon his followers with an effect that was made sufficiently plain by the "vigorous applause" with which his slander was greeted by the negroes in the gallery. As the blatant mouthing of a mere negro, White's utterances are not worth notice; as a fresh manifestation of negroism, of what the negro's attitude is toward the white man, now and always, its significance should not be allowed to escape us. Raleigh News and Observer
It is useless to attempt to disguise the hostility that exists on the part of a great many here toward northern men…. There is now a test of what shall be the status of northern men–whether they can live here without being in constant dread or not; whether they can be protected in life and property, and have justice in the courts.

We present as a grievance the want of a law to prevent the hiring out of negro tradesmen, to the great discouragement of the white workmen coming into this province. South Carolina
For the prevention of that abominable mixture and spurious issue which hereafter may increase in this dominion, as well by negroes, mulattoes, and Indians intermarrying with English, or other white women, as by their unlawful accompanying with one another, Be it enacted by the authoritie aforesaid, and it is hereby enacted, That for the time to come, whatsoever English or other white man or woman being free shall intermarry with a negro, mulatto, or Indian man or woman bond or free shall within three months after such marriage be banished and removed from this dominion forever, and that the justices of each respective countie within this dominion make it their particular care, that this act be put in effectual execution Ginni Rometty

Christians must wear tunics with two yellow sleeves and they are forbidden to ride horses. Mutawakkil; Al-Mutawakkil Ala Allah Jafar Bin Al-Mutasim
We affirm God's plan for marriage and sexual intimacy – one man, and one woman, for life. Homosexuality is not a "valid alternative lifestyle." The Bible condemns it as sin. It is not, however, unforgivable sin. The same redemption available to all sinners is available to homosexuals. They, too, may become new creations in Christ. Southern Baptist Convention

You can’t fight rational discrimination the same way as you fight irrational discrimination. Dinesh D'Souza
If we are going to find reconciliation, it can’t be based on one group blaming the other. You can’t have one group feeling guilty and another group feeling defensive. You can’t have one side feeling shame and the other group feeling anger. Marco Williams
We strongly believe that Jesus Christ, if he were alive in the flesh in this time and voted, would NEVER vote for Mitt Romney under any circumstances. Mitt Romney represents Mormonism which is counterfeit Christianity, a cult. Christians for Truth

Racial discourses and theories are socially constructed ... but repudiating race theory does not make it disappear in politics. Race matters ... because it functions as a marker and an anchor to establish and repudiate identity, status and position ... Races exist because racism exists. Paul Tiyambe Zeleza
The doublespeak of the American neoconservatives who conjured up the term "reverse racism" (was) to attack those who fought against White supremacy. This so-called ‘colorblind’ ideology has reversed the gains made during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and is actually commonsense among White Americans. It informs policymakers from the White House to the Supreme Court and has been used to justify the retreat from egalitarianism. Francis N. Njubi

The Negro has the simplest of alternatives: live a life of constant humility or ever-threatening danger. Norman Mailer
It was determined to exterminate all the Protestants, and the plan was approved by the queen …. The signal to commence the massacre should be given by the bell of the palace, and the marks by which they should recognize each other in the darkness were a bit of white linen tied around the left arm and a white cross on the hat. Jacques-Auguste De Thou
All Germans and Swiss emigrating to the colonies will be awarded transportation subsidies and land, provided they are not Catholic. George I
I found no better way of dealing with the race problem as to interact with all other people as if discrimination did not exist. Arthur John Johnson
Is it not rather our duty to make labor more respectable by preventing all black competition, especially in the territories…. Negro equality will be abundant, as every white laborer will have occasion to regret when he is elbowed from his plow or his anvil by slave niggers. Abraham Lincoln
To prejudge other men's notions before we have looked into them is not to show the darkness but to put out our own eyes. John Locke
We are to call barbarism whatever differs from our own customs. Indeed, we seem to have no other standard of truth and reason than the opinions and customs of our own country. There at home is always the perfect religion, the perfect legal system--the perfect and most accomplished way of doing everything. Michel de Montaigne

Diplomacy is a little bit like Jazz. It’s improvisation on a theme. Richard Holbrooke
There are universal traits and aspects of all these conflicts, and I think that all of them have bridgeable solutions. The only question is whether you are ready to take the challenge, to pay the price, to compromise in order to get more. This, I believe, is the challenge for all the peacemakers in the world. Yossi Beilin
A very large proportion of Virginians would want to continue segregation of the races because we believe we can provide a better system of education by doing that. Thomas J. Stanley
Slavery, like all other great systems of wrong, founded in the depths of human selfishness, and existing for ages, has not neglected its own conservation. It has steadily exerted an influence upon all around it favorable to its own continuance. And to-day it is so strong that it could exist, not only without law, but even against law. Custom, manners, morals, religion, are all on its side everywhere in the South; and when you add the ignorance and servility of the ex-slave to the intelligence and accustomed authority of the master, you have the conditions, not out of which slavery will again grow, but under which it is impossible for the Federal government to wholly destroy it, unless the Federal government be armed with despotic power, to blot out State authority, and to station a Federal officer at every cross-road. This, of course, cannot be done, and ought not even if it could. Frederick Douglass
We don't have anything against Muslims. But we don't want minarets. The minaret is a symbol of a political and aggressive Islam; it's a symbol of Islamic law. The minute you have minarets in Europe, it means Islam will have taken over. Oskar Freysinger
It is forbidden to the tolerated peoples living on Muslim territory to clothe themselves in the same manner as the chiefs, the scholars, and the nobles. They should not be allowed to clothe themselves in costly fabrics which have been cut in the modes which are forbidden to them, in order that they may not offend the sensibilities of poor Muslims and in order that their faith in their religion should not be shaken by this. Muhammad Al-Ramli
It is no longer permitted them [Christians and Jews] to put themselves, with respect to their houses, on an equal footing with the dwellings of their Muslim neighbors, and still less to build their buildings higher. If they are of the same height, or higher, it is incumbent upon us to pull them down to a size a little less than the houses of the true believers. This conforms to the word of the Prophet: 'Islam rules, and nothing shall raise itself above it.' This is also in order to hinder them from knowing where our weak spots are and in order to make a distinction between their dwellings and ours…. They should not be permitted to employ mounts like the Muslims. They must use neither saddles, nor iron-stirrups, in order to be distinguished from the true believers. They must under no circumstance ride horses because of the noble character of this animal …. They shall only walk single-file, and in narrow lanes they must withdraw even more into the most cramped part of the road. Hassan Al Kafrawi
The Jews and the vileness of their horrible belief, which is more foul than any other detestable error, must be destroyed and cast out. …. No Jew shall celebrate the Passover …. No Jew shall flee to avoid being received into the Church, or conceal himself for such a purpose, after having taken to flight. No Jew shall entertain the hope of resuming his errors, or of performing the ceremonies of his infamous belief. No Jew shall entertain in his heart any perfidy against the Christian religion, and in favor of his own sect, or exhibit such perfidy by word or deed. No Jew shall attempt to infringe, or oppose, any regulations or laws of the Christians which have been published. No one shall venture to conceal a Jew who is aware of the existence of these offences which have been prohibited, or who has committed them. No one shall delay to denounce a fugitive Jew when he is found, or to reveal his hiding place …. no Jew shall make a distinction between food which is clean and unclean, as established by the customs and traditions of his ancient rites. No one shall perversely refuse to eat food of any kind, whose condition is proved to be good. …. it shall not be lawful for any Jew to testify against a Christian in any legal proceeding, or business transaction, even though said Christian should be of the lowest rank or a slave; nor shall a Jew prosecute a Christian, in any action at law; or sue him upon any written contract …. The following law is derived from others of great severity, which have been enacted to punish the perfidy of the Jews; and it is hereby decreed that whoever attempts to commit any of the crimes prohibited by former laws, or contained in any amendments to the same, or presumes to act in defiance of said laws, shall be either stoned to death, or burned …. All Christians are Forbidden to Defend or Protect a Jew, by Either Force or Favor Visigoths
Emancipation from every kind of bondage is my principle. Ernestine Rose
What is the use of striving for standards of judicial propriety if [we] condone such lapses! It would have been bad enough if [the magistrate] had been a Gentile; but for a Jew it was unforgivable. Benjamin N. Cardozo

Never in American History has anything been known to even compare with the present wave of bigotry and reaction personified so completely by the Ku Klux Klan. This viper has already captured Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Indiana….Bigotry will grow just as long as there is man’s mass ignorance to heed these hoodlums and as there is a vast amoung of it one shudders at the prospect. Emanuel Haldeman-Julius
The danger that the massacres will surely ruin your state the same as it has destroyed those innocent Jewish victims, rather deepens my regret that you have till now not succeeded in suppressing fully the excesses Israel Zangwill
Existing legal discriminations on account of color are not based on character or conduct, and have no relation to moral worth and fitness for civic usefulness, but are rather relics of prejudice which had its origin in slavery. I recommend their total repeal. George Hoadley
If you’re born in America with a black skin, you’re born in prison, and the masses of black people in America today are beginning to regard our plight or predicament in this society as one of a prison inmate. Malcolm X
It is an absolute impossibility in this society to reversely sexually objectify heterosexual men, just as it is impossible for a poor person of color to be a racist. Such extreme prejudice must be accompanied by the power of society’s approval and legislation. While women and poor people of color may become intolerant, personally abusive, even hateful, they do not have enough power to be racist or sexist. Ana Castillo
We said nonsense but it was important nonsense. Nora Astorga Gadia
This vermin must be destroyed. The Jews are our sworn enemies, and at the end of this year there will not be a Jew left in Germany. Neither the French, nor the Americans, nor the English are responsible for the difficulties in our relations with Paris, London, or Washington. Those responsible are the Jews. We will give similar advice to Rumania, Hungary, etc.... Germany will seek to form a bloc of anti-Semitic States, as she would not be able to treat as friends the States in which the Jews, either through their economic activity or through their high positions, could exercise any kind of influence. Adolf Hitler

That if any person or persons shall bring into this State, any negro or mulatto slave, whether said slave is set free or not, he or they shall be liable to an indictment, and upon conviction thereof, be fined for every such negro or mulatto, as sum not less than one hundred dollars, nor more than five hundred dollars, and imprisoned in the county jail not more than one year …. If any negro or mulatto, bond or free, shall come into this State, and remain ten days, with the evident intention of residing in the same, every such negro or mulatto shall be deemed guilty of a high misdemeanor, and for the first offence shall be fined the sum of fifty dollars Illinois

Our law requires no solemnity or form in regard to the marriage of slaves, and whether they ‘take up’ with each other, by the express permission of their owners, or from a mere impulse of nature…cannot, in contemplation of law, make any sort of difference. Richmond Pearson
We must preserve not only the purity of (white) blood but the purity of the government from any…amalgamation with inferior races. Stephen Douglas
There are many disgusting elements in Slavery which are not present in Polygamy, while the single disgusting element of Polygamy is more than present in Slavery. By the license of Polygamy, one man may have many wives, all bound to him by the marriage tie, and in other respects protected by law. Charles Sumner
There are no class of people in the United States who so highly appreciate the legality of marriage as those persons who have been held and treated as property. Henry Watson Bibb

The South could remain the South only by chasing out some of its brightest minds and most bountiful spirits, generation after generation. Many of those who left did so, directly or indirectly, because they opposed white supremacy. Glenda Elizabeth Gilmore
If the history of hyperpowers has shown anything, it is the danger of xenophobic backlash. Time and again, past world-dominant powers have fallen precisely when their core groups turned intolerant, reasserting their ‘true’ and ‘pure’ identity and adopting exclusionary policies towards ‘unassimilable’ groups. Amy L. Chua
It has been and is said of myself and the people over whom I have the honor to preside, that they frequently indulge in strictures upon the acts of men who are intrusted with governmental affairs, and the Government itself sometimes does not wholly escape. Now, sir, I will simply state what I know to be true, that no people exists who are more friendly to the Government of the United States than the people of this Territory. The Constitution they revere, the laws they seek to honor. But the non-execution of those laws in times past, for our protection, and the abuse of power in the hands of those intrusted therewith, even in the hands of those whom we have supported for office, even betraying us in the hour of our greatest peril and extremity, but withholding the due execution of laws designed for the protection of all the citizens of the United States: it is for this we have cause of complaint, not the want of good and wholesome laws, but the execution of the same, in the true meaning and spirit of the constitution. Brigham Young
This present race of Indians will never be converted. It mattereth not whether they kill one another off or if somebody else does it. And as for our sending missionaries among them to convert them, it is of no use Brigham Young
While we appreciate the constitution of the United States as the most precious among the nations, we feel that we had rather retreat to the deserts, islands, or mountain caves than consent to be ruled by governors and judges whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocence and virtue, who delight in injustice and oppression.

The fundamental reason for anti-Semitism is that Jewish Law, the law of liberated slaves, carefully protects the rights of ordinary workers, and this has always been offensive to the Western ruling classes. Francisco Gil-White
It is really mortifying, sir, when a woman possessed of a common share of understanding considers the difference of education between the male and female sex, even in those families where education is attended to... Nay why should your sex wish for such a disparity in those whom they one day intend for companions and associates. Pardon me, sir, if I cannot help sometimes suspecting that this neglect arises in some measure from an ungenerous jealousy of rivals near the throne. Abigail Adams
Much of the prejudice against Islam in the West stems from a lack of understanding of the true nature of Islam as a religion professed by 1.4 billion people in the world. Westerners tend to view other peoples and other cultures only from the perspective of Western benchmarks and philosophy. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

There are eleven things which are impure: urine, excrement, sperm, bones, blood, dogs, pigs, non-Moslem men and women, wine, beer, and the sweat of the excrement-eating camel…. Every part of the body of a non-Moslem individual is impure, even the hair on his hand and his body hair, his nails, and all the secretions of his body. Ruhollah Khomeini
… the government has evil intentions and is opposed to the ordinances of Islam. ... The Ministry of Justice has made clear its opposition to the ordinances of Islam by various measures like the abolition of the requirement that judges be Muslim and male; henceforth, Jews, Christians, and the enemies of Islam and the Muslims are to decide on affairs concerning the honor and person of the Muslims. Ruhollah Khomeini
From the very beginning, the historical movement of Islam has had to contend with the Jews, for it was they who first established anti-Islamic propaganda and engaged in various stratagems, and as you can see, this activity continues down to the present. Later they were joined by other groups, who were in certain respects more satanic then they. Ruhollah Khomeini
In the 1950s, men were the bread winners and women worried about the price of bread. Richard Norton Smith
There is no use for you to argue. We have already disposed of three quarters of the Armenians. There are none at all left in Bitlis, Van, and Erzerum.

A premium is sometimes put on impropriety of conduct on the women’s part by the foreman. That is, a woman who will submit or respond to his course jokes and language and evil behaviour receives more work than the woman who feels and shows herself insulted by such conduct, and wishes to preserve her self-respect. The pittance earned by some of these women is earned at the expense of more than only hard toil. Even when this coarseness is confined to language only, it causes deep suffering to some of the women. They feel, they know, that because they are women and therefore regarded as helpless and inferior, they are spoken to as men are not spoken to, and the sting enters their souls. Isabella Ormston Ford
The past subjection of women has so chastened women, so trained her to think of others rather than of herself, that after all it may have acted more as a blessing rather than a curse to the world? May it not bring her to the problems of the future with a purer aim and a keener insight than is possible for a man? Isabella Ormston Ford
Rebellion is the necessary result of injustice. It may not always achieve its purpose, or be intended to do so, but a conviction of injustice endured must precede articulate rebellion. Nor is it always certain that injustice will be followed by rebellion – it would be very much better for the world if this was the case. But where the victims of aggression or custom are ignorant and disunited, the opportunities for reasoned and effective revolt are practically reduced to nothing… Teresa Billington Greig
The presence of a young female in the operating theatre is an outrage to our natural instincts and is calculated to destroy the respect and admiration with which the opposite sex is regarded. Anonymous
To remain single was thought a disgrace and at thirty an unmarried woman was called an old maid. After their parents died, what could they do, where could they go? If they had a brother, as unwanted and permanent guests, they might live in his house. Some had to maintain themselves and then, indeed, difficulty arose. The only paid occupation open to them a gentlewoman was to become a governess under despised conditions and a miserable salary. None of the professions were open to women; there were no women in Government offices; no secretarial work was done by them. Even nursing was disorganized and disreputable until Florence Nightingale Florence Nightingale recreated it as a profession by founding the Nightingale School of Nursing in 1860. Louisa Garrett Anderson
In 1857 the Divorce Act was passed, and, as is well known, set up by law a different moral standard for men and women. Under this Act which is still in force a man can obtain the dissolution of the marriage if he can prove one act of infidelity on the part of his wife; but a woman cannot get her marriage dissolved unless she can prove that her husband has been guilty both of infidelity and cruelty. Millicent Fawcett
I thought surely if women were consulted in the management of the state happier and better conditions must exist for hard-working sweated lives such as these... It was gradually unfolded to me that the unequal laws which made women appear interior to men were the main cause of these evils. I found that the man-made laws of marriage, parentage and divorce placed women in every way in a condition of slavery - and were as harmful to men by giving them power to be tyrants Rosa May Billinghurst
The consequences of a speedy removal will be important to the United States, to individual States, and to the Indians themselves. The pecuniary advantages which it promises to the Government are the least of its recommendations. It puts an end to all possible danger of collision between the authorities of the General and State Governments on account of the Indians. It will place a dense and civilized population in large tracts of country now occupied by a few savage hunters. Andrew Jackson
Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood. This sets the stage for further repression and violence that spread all too easily. Coretta Scott King

When you will explain why, in His wisdom, He made one mountain overtop another mountain--formed one ocean larger than another ocean--planned one valley wider than another valley; when you can make me understand why He made the oak stronger than its neighbor--the rainbow more beautiful than the storm-cloud--the lily more lovely than the lilac; when you will tell me the reason that Providence ordained that the fair Saxon should be permitted to express, in the blush upon her face, all the emotions of her soul, while the African knows not the signification of the word--when these things are made clear to me, I will tell you how and why He has made the African the servant of the Anglo-Saxon race, but not till then.

Therefore: To restrain and prevent barbarity being exercised towards slaves, Be it enacted, that if any person shall wilfully murder his own slave, or the slaves of any other person, every such person [i. e., the offender] shall, upon conviction thereof, forfeit and pay the sum of seven hundred pounds South Carolina
A gift, bequest, or devise, made to a slave, by any one not his owner, would be void Daniel Dulany
Whereas there is a pernicious sect, (commonly called Quakers.) lately risen, who by word and writing have published and maintained many dangerous and horrid tenets, and do take upon them to change and alter the received laudable customs of our nation, in giving civil respect to equals, or reverence to superiors, whose actions tend to undermine the civil government, and also to destroy the order of the churches, by denying all established forms of worship, and by withdrawing from orderly church-fellowship, allowed and approved by all orthodox professors of the Truth, and instead thereof, and in opposition thereunto, frequently meeting themselves, insinuating themselves into the minds of the simple, or such as are least affected to the order and government of church and commonwealth, hereby divers of our inhabitants have been infected, notwithstanding all former laws, made upon tile experience of their arrogant and bold obtrusions, to disseminate their principles among us, prohibiting their coming in this jurisdiction, they have not been deterred from their impetuous attempts to undermine our peace, and hazard our ruin. Massachusetts
Sharia law has nothing to do with this at all. It’s crazy. It’s crazy. The guy’s an American citizen who has been an admitted lawyer to practice in the state of New Jersey, swearing an oath to uphold the laws of New Jersey, the constitution of the state of New Jersey, and the Constitution of the United States of America…this sharia law business is crap. It’s just crazy. And I’m tired of dealing with the crazies. It’s just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background. Chris Christie

The class struggle, to which Marx has specially drawn attention, is a real factor, the tokens of which are to be found on every page of history. But the struggle is not confined only to two classes: the proletariat and the capitalist; it occurs between an infinite number of groups with different interests, and above all between the elites contending for power. The existence of these groups may vary in duration, they may be based on permanent or more or less temporary characteristics. In the most savage peoples, and perhaps in all, sex determines two of these groups. Vilfredo Pareto
The President of the United States shall be, and hereby is further authorized and empowered to cause to be defrayed, on the part of the United States, the reasonable expenses of such Indians as may from time to time visit the seat of government thereof, for their journeys to, stay at, and return from the same, and also to cause to be given to such Indians, during their stay as aforesaid, such presents as he shall judge necessary. United States Congress
The white men were roused by a mere instinct of self-preservation ... until at last there had sprung into existence a great Ku Klux Klan, a veritable empire of the South, to protect the Southern country. Woodrow Wilson
If the blacks make war upon us they must abide by the awful retribution that will follow George Washington Gordon
The legislation of one nation is sometimes intentionally made to bear heavily upon the interests of another. That legislation, adapted, as it is meant to be, to the special interests of its own people, will often press most unequally upon the several component interests of its neighbors. John Quincy Adams
The Dred Scott decision was a partisan political decision, the purpose of which was to establish . . . for all time to come the legality, the rightfulness and even the piety of slavery . . . The comment made upon that great wrongful judicial decision is to be seen in the dreadful war through which we have just passed Jacob Merritt Howard
Negrophobia tended to hold even sparse Reconstruction institutions . . . at low throttle, and played a part in Reconstruction’s incompleteness Harold M. Hyman
The Negro is not permitted to testify because he might tell of the enormities practiced upon him. Daniel Clark
The top-to-toe burka, with its sinister, airless little grille, is more than an instrument of persecution, it is a public tarring and feathering of female sexuality. It transforms any woman into an object of defilement too untouchably disgusting to be seen. It is a garment of lurid sexual suggestiveness: what rampant desire and desirability lurks and leers beneath its dark mysteries? In its objectifying of women, it turns them into cowering creatures demanding and expecting violence and victimization…. More moderate versions of the garb – the dull, uniform coat to the ground and the plain headscarf – have much the same effect Mary Louisa Toynbee
We have too many mosques in this country Peter T. King
Jews are the brothers of the monkeys and the swine. Verily behind me is a Jew. Then come and kill him Unfortunately we hear too many people saying we must build bridges with them. No. They understand one language. It is the language of the sword, and it is the only language they understand., In order to establish security on this earth …, the word of Allah will be the superior word. Younus Kathrada
It was so surprising to me when we hosted the woman-led prayer in New York in 2005 and we got death threats. People actually called my house and my parents. And they were Muslims--people who knew me, who threatened my physical safety and threatened the physical safety of my friends and family. Somebody traced one of the emails and it was a 16-year-old Muslim kid who lived in the same state. We need to rigorously not be allowing that type of stuff. Saleemah Abdul-Ghafur
The defendant's proposition that the requirement of Christians and Jews to pay jizyah (poll tax) constitutes a reversal of humanity's efforts to establish a better world is contrary to the divine verses on the question of jizyah, in a manner considered by some, inappropriate, even for temporal matters and judgments notwithstanding its inappropriateness when dealing with the Koran and Sunnah, whose texts represent the pinnacle of humane and generous treatment of non-Muslim minorities Egypt
A second cause of our present apathy is the terrible position of Moslem women. There is absolutely nothing in Islam, or the Koran, or the example of the first two centuries, to justify this terrible and cancerous growth that has for nearly a thousand, years eaten into the very vitals of Islamic society…. the present system … means the permanent imprisonment and enslavement of half the nation. How can we expect progress from the children of mothers who have never shared, or even seen, the free social intercourse of modern mankind? This terrible cancer that has grown since the 3rd and 4th century of the Hijra must either be cut out, or the body of Moslem society will be poisoned to death by the permanent waste of all the women of the nation. Muhammed Shah Aga Kahn III
Kings of Islam! You should with all your royal determination apply yourself to uprooting and disgracing infidels, polytheists, and men of bad dogmas and bad religions. You should not content yourself merely with levying the poll-tax and the tribute from the infidels and you should not allow infidelity to be preserved in spite of your royal power and authority. Ziauddin Barani
Dhimmis--Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians--are not permitted to ostentatiously display their wine or church bells ... their houses may not be higher than the Muslim's, no matter how low that is. The dhimmi may not ride an elegant horse or mule; he may ride a donkey only if the saddle is of wood. He may not walk on the good part of the road. They have to wear [an identifying] patch, even women, and even in the baths ... All dhimmis must hold their tongue...[ Abu Hamid Muhammad Al-Ghazzali
It has become clear to my mind that the kingdom of heaven has predestined that kafirs should be reduced to a state of humiliation and treated with utter contempt.,,, When the conquering army arrives in an area with a mixed Muslim-Hindu population, the imperial guards should transfer the Muslims from their villages to the towns and at the same time care for their property. ... Moreover, wherever there was even the slightest fear of a Muslim defeat, the Islamic army should be there to disperse infidels to all corners of the earth. Jihad should be their first priority, thereby ensuring the security of every Muslim.. Shah Waliullah
A Moslem must not act as masseur to a Jew or Christian; he must not clear their rubbish nor clean their latrines. In fact, the Jew and the Christian are more suited for such work, which are degrading tasks. A Moslem must not act as a guide or stableman for an animal owned by a Jew or Christian; he must not act as their donkey-driver or hold the stirrups for them. lbn Abdun
The Arabs have persecuted us severely, and passed baneful and discriminatory legislation against us… Never did a nation molest, degrade, debase, and hate us as much as they.. Moses Maimonides

The government was founded on the principle that the government must never choose between religions or favor one over another … We would be untrue to the best part of ourselves and who we are as New Yorkers and Americans if we said no to a mosque in Lower Manhattan. Michael Bloomberg
White settlers possessed no traditions and institutions comparable to the Indians' hospitality and sharing, adoption, and complete social integration. ...Whites who educated Indians did so with the idea that the Indians would return to their own people as missionaries to spread the gospel, not that they might become functioning parts of White society. Peter Farb

This county was formed for the white man, not for the black man. John Wilkes Booth
It was we who did the dispossessing. We took the traditional lands and smashed the traditional way of life. We brought the diseases. The alcohol. We committed the murders. We took the children from their mothers. We practiced discrimination and exclusion. It was our ignorance and our prejudice. And our failure to imagine these things being done to us. Paul Keating
We'd have to go self-service. Elizabeth the Queen Mother; Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon
We're not sexists, we're chauvinists -- we're male chauvinist pigs, and we're happy to be because we think that's what men were destined to be. We think that's what women want. Rush Limbaugh
We are tired of being lynched physically in Mississippi, and we are tired of being lynched spiritually and economically in the North. Martin Luther King Jr.
Every freedman, free negro and mulatto shall, on the second Monday of January, 1866, and annually thereafter, have a lawful home or employment, and shall have written evidence thereof as follows, to wit: if living in any incorporated city, town, or village, a license from that mayor thereof; and if living outside of an incorporated city, town, or village, from the member of the board of police of his beat, authorizing him or her to do irregular and job work; or a written contract, as provided in Section 6 in this act; which license may be revoked for cause at any time by the authority granting the same. Mississippi
I'm not a Democrat. I'm not a Republican, and I don't even consider myself an American. If you and I were Americans, there'd be no problem. Those Honkies that just got off the boat, they're already Americans; Polacks are already Americans; the Italian refugees are already Americans. Everything that came out of Europe, every blue-eyed thing, is already an American. And as long as you and I have been over here, we aren't Americans yet. Malcolm X
The year of 1901 with its lynching record is a thing of the past. There were 135 human beings that met death at the hands of mobs during this year. Not only is the list larger than for four years past, but the barbarism of this lawlessness is on the increase. Six human beings were burned alive between January 1st 1901 and January 1st 1902. More persons met death in this horrible manner the past twelve months than in three years before and in proportion as the number roasted alive increases, in the same proportion has there been an indifference manifested by the public. Time was when the country resounded with denunciation and the horror of burning a human being by so called Christian and civilized people. The newspapers were full of it. The last time a human being was made fuel for flames it was scarcely noticed in the papers editorially. And the chairman of your bureau finds it harder every year to get such matter printed. In other words, the need for agitation and publication of facts is greater than ever, while the avenues through which to make such publications have decreased. Ida B. Wells
As I am going on the expedition to New Mexico and have reason to fear that I may be annoyed by some individual since I am a mulatto, and as it is proper to protect my rights in such an eventuality by an affidavit showing that I am a free women, unmarried, and the legitimate daughter of Hernando, a negro and an Indian named Magdalena, I therefore request your grace to accept this affidavit, which shows that I am free and not bound by marriage or slavery. I request that a properly certified and signed copy be given to me in order to protect my rights, and that it carry full legal authority. I demand justice. Isabel de Olvera

Before civil rights struggles hit their towns, white southerners believed that race relations in their town was good…. The thought the agitation the result of outside forces---communism, the NAACP and Northern liberals. Jason Sokol
White southerners used anti communism to beat back the challenges to the status quo on race. Jason Sokol
It falls to me as a Christian minister and a practitioner of religion to indicate that in the matter of sexual prejudice, religion is fundamentally a part of the problem and one can only hope that by acknowledging that, it may well indeed become part of the solution as well. Perhaps the one thing that my profession and yours have in common is that we have a great deal to answer for in the question of this prejudice which we are confronting today. Peter Gomes
This will be a different society if a Catholic is elected President Norman Vincent Peale
The religious issue was the major issue of the Kennedy campaign…. Nixon said over and over again that he would not make an issue over Kennedy’s religion. Theodore C. Sorensen
The singular evil of our time is prejudice. It is from this evil that all other evils grow and multiply. Rod Serling
But, because the blacks were so close to the very civilization which sought to keep them out, because they could not help but react in some way to its incentives and prizes, and because the very tissue of their consciousness received its tone and timbre from the strivings of that dominant civilization, oppression spawned among them a myriad variety of reactions, reaching from outright blind rebellion to sweet, other-worldly submissiveness. Richard Wright
Race is an artificial barrier in our community, and that sometimes, it is little more than a safe harbor for politicians who should know better. Richard Naidu
If you wish the Jews to become better men and useful citizens, then banish every humiliating restriction, open to them every avenue of gaining a livelihood. Honore de Mirabeau; Honore Gabriel Victor Requiti
I believe that it is essential to our leadership in the world and to the development of true democracy in our country to have no discrimination in our country whatsoever. Eleanor Roosevelt
the plain fact that throughout the world today organized groups of men by monopoly of economic and physical power, legal enactment and intellectual training are limiting with determination and unflagging zeal the development of other groups; and that the concentration of particularly economic power today puts the majority of mankind into slavery to the rest. But one thing is sure and that is that these ancestors of mine and their descendants have had a common history; have suffered a common disaster and have one long memory. W. E. B. Du Bois
Race is a fact of life and is not a problem unless people make it out to be so Epeli Ganilau
In the Greece of 200 B.C. … the murder of female infants was so common that among 6,000 families living in Delphi no more than 1 percent had two daughters Rudolph Joseph Rummel
The position I early was enabled to take was one of self-reliance. And were all women as sure of their wants as I was, the result would be the same. But they are so overloaded with precepts and guardians who think that nothing is so much to be dreaded for a woman as originality of thought or character, that their minds are impeded with doubts till they lose their chance of fair, free proportions. The difficulty is to get them to the point from which they shall naturally develop self-respect, and learn self-help. Margaret Fuller
We would have every arbitrary barrier thrown down. We would have every path laid open to Woman as freely as to Man. Margaret Fuller

While Islamophobia like anti-Semitism is centuries old, it too will not be eradicated easily or soon. John Louis Esposito
The Southern institution of racial segregation or racial separation was the correct, self-evident truth which arose from the chaos and confusion of the Reconstruction period. Separation promotes racial harmony. It permits each race to follow its own pursuits, and its own civilization. Segregation is not discrimination James O. Eastland
I would rather eat dirt than see my grandchildren grow up in the filthy, poisonous atmosphere of Jewry Karl Donitz
Our sole aim was, by virtue of this war, to rid ourselves of the lot of them, however many international decisions there were. Each one represented a blow to our...independence. Ahmed Djemal

There have been incidents of sabotage and there have been 793 instances of signaling to submarines off shore John L. DeWitt
In the State of Israel, there are still women who suffer mental and physical violence just because they are women. Many people suffer mental and physical violence, but there is a certain section of the population that harasses women because they are women, and we must fight this vigorously. Anyone who infringes on the rights of women or their freedom, or who works to discriminate against women, works against the principles and ideals of the State of Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu
We have a tendency in life to be afraid of our oppressors. John Wesley Carlos
This administration will work toward the eventual elimination of segregation from our national life Dwight D. Eisenhower
He [God] has heard our prayers, and by revelation has confirmed that the long-promised day has come when every faithful, worthy man in the Church may receive the holy priesthood, with power to exercise its divine authority, and enjoy with his loved ones every blessing that flows therefrom, including the blessings of the temple. Accordingly, all worthy male members of the Church may be ordained to the priesthood without regard for race or color. Spencer W. Kimball
The great majority of the states look upon segregation as discrimination. And those few states that have a special problem in this respect will, in a variety of ways, slowly have to solve their problem and accept the will of the majority. Eleanor Roosevelt
There exists in the minds of men a tone of feeling toward women as toward slaves. Margaret Fuller
The Christians wrested the Old Testament out of the hands of the Jews and used it as a weapon against them. Karlheinz Deschner
My lords; the bill is in itself very simple. It concedes to the Roman Catholics the power of holding every office in the state, excepting a few connected with the administration of the affairs of the church; and it also concedes to them the power of becoming members of parliament. Duke of Wellington
The Southerner is the negro's friend, his only friend. Let no intermeddling abolitionist, no refined philosophy, dissolve this friendship. George Fitzhugh
We need never have white slaves in the South, because we have black ones. Our citizens, like those of Rome and Athens, are a privileged class. We should train and educate them to deserve the privileges and to perform the duties which society confers on them. Instead, by a low demagoguism depressing their self-respect by discourses on the equality of man, we had better excite their pride by reminding them that they do not fulfill the menial offices which white men do in other countries. George Fitzhugh
Our leaders sold us out. They want us to mix with the other races. But it is not working. The other churches are preaching that you must love all. But we don’t want that. We don't want to overthrow the Government. We have to wait for deliverance from the Lord....We are suffering under this ANC-communist regime. We want blacks, coloreds and the other races to return to their traditions. If we rule, it will be a blessing for all of Africa. Willie Smith
One of the gross misconceptions about feminism is that it's only about women. But in order for women to live freely, men have to live freely, too. Feminism has shown us that what we think of as feminine is actually defined by cultural messages and political agendas. The same holds true for men and for what constitutes masculinity. Being a feminist opens your eyes to the ways men, like women, are imprisoned in cultural stereotypes. Susan Faludi
Black people and women suffer from a presumption of incompetence. The burdens of proof are different. It just gets so tiresome. Carol Moseley-Braun
There is no middle ground on the question of interracial marriage. A person either favors or condemns such unions. The Negroes and negrophiles in the United States today who are waging the campaign for complete racial equality must be assumed to favor the amalgamation of the races unless they have openly stated their opposition. Theodore G. Bilbo
Hereafter, in any State, Territory, possession, or the District of Columbia, the marriage of a white person and a Negro or mulatto or a person who shall have one-sixteenth or more of Negro blood, or with a Mongolian or with a person who shall have one-sixteenth or more of Mongolian blood, shall be unlawful, and such marriage shall be void. Any person who is a party to any such marriage, or who knowingly performs a marriage ceremony to which such persons are a party, shall, upon conviction thereof, be punished by a fine of not to exceed $10,000 and by imprisonment of not to exceed ten years. Theodore G. Bilbo
The trend of psychology, education, anthropology, and social science is toward environmentalism in the explanation of group differences, which means that the racial beliefs which defended caste are being torn away. It also means, by implication, that the white majority group in power is accused of being the cause of the Negro's deficiencies and unhappiness. Gunnar Myrdal
The Negro people, most exploited of the toilers, suffering from lynching and Jim Crowism, robbed of their constitutional rights, are being prepared to fight another war for 'democracy' in order to further enslave them. Communist Party

Segregation results inevitably in discrimination and inferior treatment William H. Hastie
The intelligence and ability of a colored person are in pretty direct proportion to the amount of white blood he has, and . . . most of the positions of leadership, influence, and prominence in the Negro race are held not by real Negroes but by Mulattoes, many of whom have very little Negro blood. . . . Madison Grant
The Mongol is not inferior to the Nordic in intelligence, as is the Negro, but represents such a divergent type that the mixture between Nordics and Chinese or Japanese is not a good one. The overflow of these Asiatics into our Pacific Coast might have Mongolized the States there had not the American laboring man taken alarm and secured legislation forbidding their immigration. Madison Grant
No one who knew the true nature of the Indian felt any regret that they were driven off their hunting grounds. This attitude was found wherever the Whites came in conflict with them and explains why they were scarcely regarded as human beings. Madison Grant
Democratic ideals among an homogeneous population of Nordic blood, as in England or America, is one thing, but it is quite another for the white man to share his blood with, or entrust his ideals to, brown, yellow, black or red men. This is suicide pure and simple, and the first victim of this amazing folly will be the white man himself Madison Grant
In eighteen states in this white man's country and also in the District of Columbia, where the Nation's Capitol is located, intermarriage of the races is permitted by law. This fact is a national shame, or should I say crime, against the white race of America, and I pray God that these states and the Congress of the United States … will do something about this situation before it is too late Theodore G. Bilbo
The black herring of intermarriage has been dragged too often across the trail to justice. 'Would you want your sister to marry a nigger?' is still the question that is supposed to stun any white man who sponsors rights for Negroes. It stirs Negroes to ironic laughter, although on all levels they recognize the white man's fear of intermarriage as deep seated… Sterling A. Brown
The more conservative element of Negroes differ from those who hold the most radical views in opposition to segregation only in terms of time and technique of its elimination …. all Negroes must condemn any form of segregation based on race, creed or color anywhere in our nation Frederick D. Patterson
The Negro wants a revision of the concept of race and of racism. Discriminations in industry, labor unions, education, the Jim Crow pattern for the Army and Navy are based upon fascist racism …. There will have to be education on the subject of race. We shall have to learn that the doctrine of racism has no scientific foundations . . . Charles Wesley
THERE Is no power in the world--not even in all the mechanized armies of the earth, Allied and Axis—which could now force the Southern white people to the abandonment of the principle of social segregation Mark Foster Ethridge
This problem, which exists because of the presence of … Negroes in this country, can be permanently solved only by the physical separation of the races or by resigning ourselves to total mongrelization resulting in the destruction of both the white and black races Theodore G. Bilbo

Take Your Choice: Separation or Mongrelization Theodore G. Bilbo
Although the race problem may seem to lie dormant at times, it continually exists, lives on and on and sometimes rages with all the fury of a jungle beast. It gnaws at the very vitals of our existence, in time it will sap our strength and destroy the greatness of our American way of life unless solved properly and permanently. Theodore G. Bilbo
I appeal for Caucasian unity. I appeal for the imperial destiny of our mighty race. This is our country. We made it. We molded it. We control it, and we always will. We have done great things. We have mighty things yet to do. The negro is an accident - an unwilling, a blameless, but an unwholesome, unwelcome, helpless, unassimilable element in our civilization. He is not made for our times. He is not framed to share in the duty and the destiny which he perplexes and beclouds. Let us put him kindly and humanly out of the way. Let us give him a better chance than he has ever had in history, and let us have done with him. John Temple Graves
The negro, whom a million Americans died to free, is, in present bond and future promise still a slave, whipped by circumstance, trodden under foot by iron and ineradicable prejudice; shut out forever from the opportunities which are the heritage of liberty, and, holding in his black hand the hollow parchment of his franchise as a freeman, looks through a slave's eyes at the impassable barriers which imprison him forever within the progress and achievement of a dominant and all-conquering race. John Temple Graves
The object of the [13th] amendment was undoubtedly to enforce the absolute equality of the two races before the law, but in the nature of things it could not have been intended to abolish distinctions based upon color, or to enforce social, as distinguished from political equality, or a commingling of the two races upon terms unsatisfactory to either. Laws permitting, and even requiring, their separation in places where they are liable to be brought into contact do not necessarily imply the inferiority of either race to the other Henry Billings Brown
This is one of the last great battles with slavery. Driven from these legislative chambers, driven from the field of war, this monstrous power has found a refuge in the Executive Mansion, where, in utter disregard of the Constitution and laws, it seeks to exercise its ancient far reaching sway. . . . Andrew Johnson is the impersonation of the tyrannical slave power. In him it lives again. Charles Sumner

I am not of Aryan extraction: that is Indo-Iranian; as far as I am aware none of my ancestors spoke Hindustani, Persian, Gypsy, or any related dialects. ... But if I am to understand that you are enquiring whether I am of Jewish origin, I can only reply that I regret that I appear to have no ancestors of that gifted people. ... I have been accustomed, nonetheless, to regard my German name with pride, and continued to do so throughout the period of the late regrettable war, in which I served in the English army. I cannot, however, forbear to comment that if impertinent and irrelevant inquiries of this sort are to become the rule in matters of literature, then the time is not far distant when a German name will no longer be a source of pride. J. R. R. Tolkein
I believe the origins of the Anglo psychopathy began when the English were excluded from the Treaty of Tordesillas, signed June 7, 1494, between Spain and Portugal. The treaty was brokered by the Pope. It was at this time that the Anglo not only rejected the legitimate body of the era, but also the religion that went against them. The Anglo, without respect for authority and religion, and to get back into the colonization game, legalized piracy. They had to operate outside the law to become the law. Over the last 480 years, the Anglo complex of psychopathy has worsened. His conscience tortures him, and his thinking grows demented for having violated his own religion, his own law, and humanity Reies Lopez Tijerina
I am obliged to confess that I do not regard the abolition of slavery as a means of warding off the struggle of the two races in the Southern states. The Negroes may long remain slaves without complaining; but if they are once raised to the level of freemen, they will soon revolt at being deprived of almost all their civil rights; and as they cannot become the equals of the whites, they will speedily show themselves as enemies. Alexis de Tocqueville
You may set the Negro free, but you cannot make him otherwise than an alien to the European. Alexis de Tocqueville
Fights between individuals, as well as governments and nations, invariably result from misunderstandings in the broadest interpretation of this term. Misunderstandings are always caused by the inability of appreciating one another's point of view. Nikola Tesla

All over this land women have no political existence. Laws pass over our heads that we can not unmake. Our property is taken from us without our consent. The babes we bear in anguish and carry in our arms are not ours. Lucy Stone
Half a century ago women were at an infinite disadvantage in regard to their occupations. The idea that their sphere was at home, and only at home, was like a band of steel on society. Lucy Stone
It is a platitude to say that the world is diverse, . . . Nevertheless, despite this diversity starting us in the face, the human mentality has continually resisted understanding and accepting it. Our mentality shows an absolutist, standardizing tendency; it demands sameness and uniformity from everything, everywhere, that only our culture, our values should count. We deem them the only perfect and universal ones, without asking others what they think. And herein lies the world's great contradiction, the contradiction between its actual, objectively existing diversity and the stubborn desire of the human mind to substitute it with a vision of a unified, indisputably homogeneous world. How many conflicts—including the bloodiest ones—have had their roots in this irreconcilable contradiction! Ryszard Kapuscinski
The trouble with discrimination is not discrimination per se, but rather that the people who are discriminated against think of themselves as second-class. Rosalyn Sussman Yalow
Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices -- just recognize them. Edward R. Murrow
There are a hundred thousand country fellows in his time ready to fight to the death against popery, without knowing whether popery was a man or a horse. Daniel Defoe
Color prejudice and religion are akin in one respect. Some folks have it and some don't, and the kernel that is responsible for it is present in us all. Wallace Thurman
Color had been made the mark of enslavement and was taken to be also the mark of inferiority; for prejudice does not reason, or it would not be prejudice William Pickens
If prejudice could reason, it would dispel itself. William Pickens
The few lighter persons in the community drew together; we were literally thrown upon each other, whether we liked or not. But when we began going about together and spending our time in each other’s society, a howl went up. We were organizing a "blue vein" society. We were mistresses of white men. We were Lesbians. We hated black folk and plotted against them. As a matter of fact, we had no other recourse but to cling together. Alice Dunbar-Nelson
To help keep diversity a wellspring of strength and make America a better place for all, I pledge to have respect for people whose abilities, beliefs, culture, race, sexual identity or other characteristics are different from my own. Southern Poverty Law Center
We are still a nation deeply divided by race and class. John Lewis
Some days ago you doubtless read reports published in the newspapers of the country of the opening of a local United Service Organizations unit in Washington for service men and women, regardless of color. The stories published at the time noted the presence at the opening of outstanding officials and semi-officials of the United States, and indicated that they joined with others of both races in singing such songs as Let Me Call You Sweetheart. No member of this House has greater respect for our leaders than I, but one can be pardoned if he questions the wisdom of such officials participating in these festivities. I unhesitatingly brand that affair as a distinct disservice to the Negro race—one to which our sanction should not be given. Whatever the intent of those responsible for the creation of this particular U. S. O. unit, its continued operation can result only in the intensification of the race problem, with which we of the South must constantly struggle. The race problem is grave enough without deliberately aggravating it by promoting the intermingling of Negroes and whites on such occasions Joseph R. Bryson
Race feeling may be called prejudice by those whose careers are cramped by it, but it is a natural antipathy which serves to maintain the purity of type. The unfortunate fact that nearly all species of men interbreed freely leaves us no choice in the matter. Either the races must be kept apart by artificial devices of this sort, or else they ultimately amalgamate, and in the offspring the more generalized or lower type prevails Madison Grant
The South opposes the civil rights of Negroes and their protection by law. Witness lynchings where no one is punished, witness the Jim Crow laws that deny the letter and spirit of the Constitution. For democracy to have real meaning, the Negro must have the same civil rights as any other American citizen. It seems obvious that the South does not yet know what this war is all about Langston Hughes
The prejudice against color, of which we hear so much, is no stronger than that against sex. It is produced by the same cause, and manifested very much in the same way. The negro's skin and the woman's sex are both prima facie evidence that they were intended to be in subjection to the white Saxon man. Elizabeth Cady Stanton
If any foreign minister begins to defend to the death a "peace conference," you can be sure his government has already placed its orders for new battleships and aeroplanes. Joseph Stalin
Anti-Semitism, as an extreme form of racial chauvinism, is the most dangerous vestige of cannibalism. … Communists, as consistent internationalists, cannot but be irreconcilable and bitter enemies of anti-Semitism. In the U.S.S.R., anti-Semitism is strictly prosecuted as a phenomenon hostile to the Soviet system. According to the laws of the U.S.S.R. active anti-Semites are punished with death. Joseph Stalin
The South politician preaches to the poor white man, "You got more than the blacks, don't complain. You're better than them, you been born with white skin," they explain. And the Negro's name Is used, it is plain, For the politician's gain, As he rises to fame And the poor white remains On the caboose of the train; But it ain't him to blame -- He's only a pawn in their game. Bob Dylan
It worked for a long time. Each "stood" by the other. When the poor white lynched a Negro, the rich white protected him in court; the preacher protected him in church; the policeman looked away, the sheriff was easily intimidated, the juries rarely convicted, and the newspapers were "reasonable. Lillian Smith
… we clung to the belief... that our white skin made us "better" than all other people. And this belief comforted us, for we felt worthless and weak when confronted with authorities who had cheapened nearly all we held dear, except our skin color. There, in the land of Epidermis, every one of us was a little king. Lillian Smith
Segregation is evil; there is no pattern of life which can dehumanize men as can the way of segregation. Lillian Smith
Even its children know that the South is in trouble. Lillian Smith
The Pole must never be your comrade. He is inferior to each German on his farm or in his factory. Be just but never forget, but never forget that you are a member of the Master Race. German Army
All that separates, whether of race, class, creed, or sex, is inhuman, and must be overcome. Katherine Wilson Sheppard; Catherine Wilson
There are not a hundred people in America who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions of people who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church — which is, of course, quite a different thing. Fulton J. Sheen
I was also pained to notice an institution which I certainly did not expect to find in this country – I mean caste. Your rich people are really Brahmins, and your poor people are Sudras. Keshub Chunder Sen
On the question of racial discrimination, the Addis Ababa Conference taught, to those who will learn, this further lesson:, That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned:, That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation; That until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes;, That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained;, And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique and in South Africa in subhuman bondage have been toppled and destroyed; Until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and good-will;, Until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, equal in the eyes of all men, as they are in the eyes of Heaven; Until that day, the African continent will not know peace. Haile Selassie
I think the most serious injustice perpetrated by the court system in America is the inability of a black man to get a jury of his peers. Bobby Seale
We're hip to the fact that Superman never saved no black people. Bobby Seale
The persecution of Jews in occupied Poland meant that we could see horror emerging gradually in many ways. In 1939, they were forced to wear Jewish stars, and people were herded and shut up into ghettos. Then, in the years '41 and '42 there was plenty of public evidence of pure sadism. With people behaving like pigs, I felt the Jews were being destroyed. I had to help them. There was no choice. Oskar Schindler
Though I had an idea of what was going on - I purposely didn't see it. Walter Friedrich Schellenberg
The Jews must realize that their influence in Germany has disappeared for all time. We wish to keep our people and our culture pure and distinctive Hjalmar Schacht
When you send a clerk on business to a distant province, a man of rigid morals is not your best choice. Ihara Saikaku
I think it is a duty I owe to my profession and to my sex to show that a woman has a right to the practice of her profession and cannot be condemned to abandon it merely because she marries. I cannot conceive how women's colleges, inviting and encouraging women to enter professions can be justly founded or maintained denying such a principle. Harriet Brooks
The dignity of women's place in the home demands that your marriage shall be a resignation. Laura Drake Gill
The common aim of all science is the gradual removal of prejudice. Niels Bohr
Ethnology: The science that treats of the various tribes of Man, as robbers, thieves, swindlers, dunces, lunatics, idiots and ethnologists. Ambrose Bierce
History looks very different from a black point of view. The heroes are different, and the eras get different names. The Progressive Era is no longer the Progressive Era, because it's the era in which more black people are lynched than in any other period in American history. Howard Zinn
This ban on interracial dating is stupid, it’s idiotic, and it is incredibly cruel. John McCain
The cost of remaining segregated when others integrated was too high …. Society’s best safeguard against persistent discrimination is competition. F. Andrew Hanssen
Yes, I'm a suffragist. Florence Harding
Apartheid is often misunderstood. It could just as easily be understood a policy of good neighborliness. Hendrik Frensch Verwoerd
if any white person shall be guilty of sexual intercourse with any of the African race, they shall be subject, on conviction thereof to a fine of not exceeding one thousand dollars, nor less than five hundred, to the use of the Territory, and imprisonment, not exceeding three years. Utah
One fact, when I was a slave, often filled me with indignation. There were many poor white lads of about my own age, belonging to families scattered around, who were as poor in personal effects as we were; and yet, though our companions, (when we chose to tolerate them,) they did not have to be controlled by a master, to go and come at his command, to be sold for his debts, or whenever he wanted extra pocket-money. The preachers of a slave-trading gospel frequently told us, in their sermons, that we should be "good boys," and not break into master's hen-roost, nor steal his bacon; but they never told this to these poor white people, although they knew very well that they encouraged the slaves to steal, trafficked in stolen goods, and stole themselves. William Parker
Three fourths of the (Southern white) people assume that the negro will not labor, except on compulsion; and the whole struggle between the whites on the one hand and the blacks on the other hand is a struggle for and against compulsion. The negro insists, very blindly perhaps, that he shall be free to come and go as he pleases; the white insists that he shall come and go only at the pleasure of his employer. The whites seem wholly unable to comprehend that freedom for the negro means the same thing as freedom for them. They readily enough admit that the Government has made him free, but appear to believe that they still have the right to exercise over him the old control. Sidney Andrews
The [Civil] war has taught this people [Southern whites[ only that the physical force of the nation cannot be resisted. They will be obedient to the letter of the law, perhaps, but the whole current of their lives flows in direct antagonism to its spirit.. Sidney Andrews
… we should set fire to their [Jews] synagogues and schools, and what cannot be burnt should be covered over with earth, that no man may ever discover a stone or brick of it; we are to do this for the glory of our Lord and Christianity. Martin Luther
All theories of chivalry and generosity and vicarious representation fall, before the fact that woman has been grossly wronged by man. That being the case, the only modest and honest thing for man to do is to say, "Henceforward have a voice in making your own laws." Till this is done, she has no sure safeguard, since otherwise the same men who made the old barbarous laws may at any time restore them. Thomas Wentworth Higginson
Plan for a Law Prohibiting the Alphabet to Women Sylvain Marechal
Friction between the races will pass away in proportion as the black man … can produce something that the white man wants or respects in the commercial world. Booker T. Washington
Society exempts woman from police functions. She is not called to be sheriff or constable or night watchman. She bears no truncheon and wears no revolver. She answers not to the summons when peace officers call for the posse comitatus. She is not received into the National Guard when bloody riot fills the city with peril and alarms. Why not? Is she not the equal of man? Is she not as loyal? as law abiding ? as patriotic? as brave? Surely. All of these is she. But it is not her function to protect the state when foreign foes attack it; it is the function of the state to protect her. It is not her function to protect the persons and property of the community against riot; it is man's function to protect her. Here at least the functional difference between the sexes is too plain to be denied, doubted, or ignored. Here at least no man or woman from the claims of equality of character jumps to the illogical conclusion that there is an identity of function. Lyman Abbott
Schoolbooks may not be interchanged between white and colored schools. Mississippi
The dangers of inter-mixing and bastardizing of our people are extraordinarily grave. They lie to a great extent in the almost unlimited lack of knowledge throughout our nation of the problems of blood. Gunther Pancke
We need to be fearless in confronting our past as individuals and an institution. There are often things we regret about our past, but there is the possibility of making amends and of building on the acknowledgment of those things. Part of our vision of Emory is being ethically engaged, and that means wrestling about what it means to have these warts. Gary Hauk
There were four Jewish students in our class and in two years all of us were gone. Perry S. Brickman
Southern attempts to deny blacks equal rights were turning the Constitution into a sublime and beautiful scripture—into a horrid charter of wrong. John Armor Bingham
… full and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings concerning personal liberty … including the constitutional right to bear arms. United States Congress
The action of President Roosevelt in entertaining that nigger will necessitate our killing a thousand niggers in the South before they learn their place again. Benjamin Ryan Tillman
Backstabbing for Beginners: My Crash Course in International Diplomacy Michael Soussan
This view that women are somehow inferior to men is not restricted to one religion or belief. Women are prevented from playing a full and equal role in many faiths. Nor, tragically, does its influence stop at the walls of the church, mosque, synagogue or temple. This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women's equal rights across the world for centuries. At its most repugnant, the belief that women must be subjugated to the wishes of men excuses slavery, violence, forced prostitution, genital mutilation and national laws that omit rape as a crime. Jimmy Carter
. . . you will be amused that when Mr. Dulles said goodbye to me this morning he said 'I feel I must tell you that when you were appointed I thought it terrible & now I think your work here has been fine!' So - against the odds the women inch forward, but I'm rather old to be carrying on the fight . . . . Eleanor Roosevelt
In numbers there is strength, and we in America must help the women of the world. Eleanor Roosevelt
Women must become more conscious of themselves as women and of their ability to function as a group. At the same time they must try to wipe from men’s consciousness the need to consider them as a group or as women in their everyday activities, especially as workers in industry or the professions. Eleanor Roosevelt
Women, go your ways! Seek not to beguile us of our imperial privileges. Content yourself with your little feminine trifles -- your babies, your benevolent societies and your knitting--and let your natural bosses do the voting. Stand back -- you will be wanting to go to war next. We will let you teach school as much as you want to, and we will pay you half wages for it, too, but beware! we don't want you to crowd us too much. Mark Twain
Even if the Jews have not all been geniuses, their general average of intelligence and intellectuality is far above our general average--and that is one of our reasons for wishing to drive them out of the higher forms of business and the professions. It is the swollen envy of pigmy minds--meanness, injustice. Mark Twain
Doesn't make any difference who we are or what we are, there's always somebody to look down on. Mark Twain
The peoples furthest from civilization are the ones where equality between man and woman are furthest apart Mark Twain
They are a harmless race when white men either let them alone or treat them no worse than dogs; in fact they are almost entirely harmless anyhow, for they seldom think of resenting the vilest insults or the cruelest injuries. They are quiet, peaceable, tractable, free from drunkenness, and they are as industrious as the day is long. A disorderly Chinaman is rare, and a lazy one does not exist. Mark Twain
If we had less statesmanship, we would get along with fewer battleships. Mark Twain
Should we distrust the man because his manners are not our manners, and that his skin is dark? James Fenimore Cooper
The Protestant Church is regarded by the great mass of the Irish people as an active cause of oppression and misery. Henry George Grey
I have a dream that we can have one day, once again, a beautiful land. I have a dream that we can have a land of our own kind, in which the enemies of our people will cease to exist within our borders. I have a dream that one day, White people will be proud of themselves once again. When one day the value of race will be universally recognized, as it must be. When one day, it will be taught to keep your race pure, to ennoble and advance your race is the highest good in this world. I have dream that this current order will fall upon itself in misery, and the enemies of our people will be legally tried and convicted for their crimes. Those white people who have betrayed the interests of White people will be tried for treason, legally, through the process but will pay for their crimes. I have a dream in which the White House will one day become White once again, and not beige, and not black, and not putrid-colored green. I have a dream that we can have a land that we are proud of once again and not simply have platitudes to the American flag without having any kind of real basis behind it worthy of pride. I have a dream that one day, once again, we can be safe and secure in our homes, when one day our home will be our castle, once again, and nobody would ever dare even think about entering our home, to deprive us of what is rightfully ours. Matthew Hale
Southern trees bear a strange fruit, Blood on the leaves and blood at the root, Black body swinging in the Southern breeze, Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees. Pastoral scene of the gallant South, The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth, Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh, Then the sudden smell of burning flesh! Here is fruit for the crows to pluck, For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck, For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop, Here is a strange and bitter crop. Billie Holiday
While the Christian apostles preached their ideal in the open, the Talmud hides; and its two appendages, the Kahal and Freemasonry, are even more invisible. The three of them use, in order to remain in the dark, a scabrous and accursed means, namely the lie. In other words, the lie is the basis of the system used by Jews … But the lie has a mortal enemy, namely the truth. For truth is the distinctive trait of Christianity. Nicolae Paulescu
India lives in her villages, we are told in every other sanctimonious public speech, That's bullshit. India doesn't live in her villages. India dies in her villages. India gets kicked around in her villages. India lives in her cities. India's villages just live only to serve her cities. Her villages are her citizen's vassals and for that reason must be controlled and kept alive, but only just. Arundhati Roy
For every Farrakhan who riles and poisons black America, there are twenty white bigots who seek to take us into organized murder and mayhem. Carl T. Rowan Jr.
The demand for a statement of a candidate’s religious belief can have no meaning except that there may be discrimination for or against him because of that belief. Discrimination against the holder of one faith means retaliatory discrimination against men of other faiths. The inevitable result of entering upon such a practice would be an abandonment of our real freedom of conscience and a reversion to the dreadful conditions of religious dissension which in so many lands have proved fatal to true liberty, to true religion, and to all advance in civilization. Theodore Roosevelt
White Man, let us stand together to secure the survival of your people and my people, for they are one and the same - they are our beloved, miraculous, wonderful, blessed and masterful white race! George Lincoln Rockwell
In Russia I felt for the first time like a full human being. No color prejudice like in Mississippi, no color prejudice like in Washington. Paul Robeson
I know for a fact that this idea of the Jews causing the war and the Jews being so all important is nonsense. But that was Hitler's idea, and...was pure fantasy. Joachim von Ribbentrop
Brahmins cannot hope to claim a high and superior status forever. Times are changing. They have to come down. Periyar E. V. Ramasamy
I have often thought of it as one of the most barbarous customs in the world, considering us as a civilized and a Christian country, that we deny the advantages of learning to women. We reproach the sex every day with folly and impertinence; while I am confident, had they the advantages of education equal to us, they would be guilty of less than ourselves. Daniel Defoe
… laws make every married woman what she is, a bonded slave, who takes her master's name, her master's bread, her master's commands, and serves her master's passions Voltairine de Cleyre
We are permitted to ride, providing we sit in a position ruinous to the horse; providing we wear a riding-habit long enough to hide the obscene human foot, weighed down by ten pounds of gravel to cheat the wind in its free blowing, so running the risk of disabling ourselves completely should accident throw us from the saddle. Think how we swim! We must even wear clothing in the water, and run the gauntlet of derision, if we dare battle in the surf minus stockings! Voltairine de Cleyre
Men insist that they don't mind women succeeding so long as they retain their "femininity". Yet the qualities that men consider "feminine" timidity, submissiveness, obedience, silliness, and self-debasement — are the very qualities best guaranteed to assure the defeat of even the most gifted aspirant. Elizabeth Gould Davis
Man's constant need to disparage woman, to humble her, to deny her equal rights, and to belittle her achievements — all are expressions of his innate envy and fear. Elizabeth Gould Davis
People who allow others not of their race to live among them will perish, because the inevitable result of a racial integration is racial inter-breeding which destroys the characteristics and existence of a race David Eden Lane
The Nazis have an ally in every town or village where there is a man eager to get rid of a Jewish competitor. The secret weapon of Hitler is the anti-Jewish inclinations of many millions of shopkeepers and grocers, of doctors and lawyers, professors and writers. Ludwig von Mises
Adam must have an Eve, to blame for what he has done. German Proverb
Hit the Poles so hard that they despair of their life; I have full sympathy with their condition, but if we want to survive, we can only exterminate them; the wolf, too, cannot help having been created by God as he is, but people shoot him for it if they can. Prince Otto von Bismarck-Schoenhausen
If you are a man, you have to be like Joe McCarthy to be called “ruthless”. For a woman, all you have to do is put somebody on hold. Marlo Thomas
Schools are no longer legally segregated, but because of residential patterns, housing discrimination, economic disparities and long-held custom, they most emphatically are in reality. Bob Herbert
I will kill every Jew, Catholic, and Negro. George Lincoln Rockwell
If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. John F. Kennedy
If an American, because his skin is dark, cannot eat lunch in a restaurant open to the public, if he cannot send his children to the best public school available, if he cannot vote for the public officials who represent him, if, in short, he cannot enjoy the full and free life which all of us want, then who among us would be content to have the color of his skin changed and stand in his place? Who among us would then be content with the counsels of patience and delay? John F. Kennedy
In the post-Civil War South few whites ever voted for black office seekers, and the legacy of their refusal remains with us in a variety of forms. The depiction of Mr. Obama as a Kenyan, an Indonesian, an African tribal chief, a foreign Muslim — in other words, as a man fundamentally ineligible to be our president — is perhaps the most searing. Tellingly, it is a charge never brought against any of his predecessors. Steven Hahn
It’s time we faced facts. Southern people just don’t like Black people. William Rehnquist
When 10 Blacks die in this country, Whites don't care. It is as if flies had died. Nelson Mandela
I am increasingly conscious of the plight in which men and women over forty who need work are finding themselves. …. It seems to me ludicrous that this situation should exist for at forty a man or woman should be at their best and have experience and poise and patience all of which should make meeting certain problems of work easier. Eleanor Roosevelt
The field of battle at Buena Vista is 6½ miles from Saltillo. Two Indiana volunteers ran away from the field of battle at the same time; one ran half a mile per hour faster than the other, and reached Saltillo 5 minutes and 54 6/11 seconds sooner than the other. Required their respective rates of travel. At the Women's Rights Convention, held at Syracuse, New York, composed of 150 delegates, the old maids, childless-wives, and bedlamites were to each other as the number 5, 7, and 3. How many were there of each class? D. H. Hill; Daniel Harvey
Integration in the fields of education, housing, transportation and public accommodations will be of limited extent and duration so long as fundamental economic inequality along racial lines persist. Bayard Rustin

Go Back To Africa Anonymous
There is danger, even now, that the adverse element seeks insidiously to pre-occupy the ground. If a few professedly loyal men shall draw the disloyal about them, and colorably set up a State government, repudiating the emancipation proclamation, and re-establishing slavery, I can not recognize or sustain their work. I should fall powerless in the attempt. This government, in such an attitude, would be a house divided against itself. Abraham Lincoln
In a rational world, the Turks’ systemic and large-scale violence against and suppression of Kurds’ legitimate rights and national aspirations, not to mention the Turks’ genocide of the Armenians, and mass killings of Greeks and others, not to mention their invasion, dismembering and occupation of half a sovereign country, Cyprus, in 1974, . . . might have brought upon Turkey the world’s condemnation and generated in international organizations, including the United Nations, a preoccupation with its predations and the production of intensively negative beliefs and passions, including prejudice . . . similar to and perhaps far exceeding that against Jews. But it has not — not even 1 percent as much. Daniel Jonah Goldhagen
… in many countries scholars are being sent into exile for racial, religious and political reasons, in increasing numbers .... It means that more and more people are growing afraid to face differences of opinion and yet it is increasingly important that throughout the world differing opinions should be listened to and weighed by the people as a whole. Eleanor Roosevelt

The whole public are tired out with these annual autumnal outbreaks in the South. Ulysses S. Grant
What I hear about the role of women is often inspired by an ideology of machismo. Women are asking deep questions that must be addressed. The church cannot be herself without the woman and her role. The woman is essential for the church. Mary, a woman, is more important than the bishops.... We must therefore investigate further the role of women in the church. We have to work harder to develop a profound theology of the woman. Only by making this step will it be possible to better reflect on their function within the church. The feminine genius is needed wherever we make important decisions. The challenge today is this: to think about the specific place of women also in those places where the authority of the church is exercised for various areas of the church Pope Francis I
Satan himself could not devise a revenge appropriate for those who deliberately slaughter infants. Haim Nahman Bialik
All who abhor the immortality of discrimination and social injustice toward their fellow men must share the impatience of the nation’s Negro Americans and stand shoulder to shoulder with them in full active and affirmative support of their struggle to make a present reality out of the 100 year old Emancipation Proclamation. Walter Reuther
I may not be able to do it but I’ll die trying. Bull Connor
To attempt to explain a system like segregation to a 6 year child is a very difficult thing. Martin Luther King Jr.
When we finally got school buses for African American students in Georgia, the state legislature ordained that the front bumpers be painted black. Not even the school busses could be equal. Jimmy Carter
The scars of racism still remain deeply imbedded in America. John Lewis
What was the reason that induced Georgia to take the step of secession? This reason may be summed up in one single proposition. It was a conviction . . . that a separation from the North was the only thing that could prevent the abolition of her slavery. . . . If things are allowed to go on as they are, it is certain that slavery is to be abolished. . . . By the time the North shall have attained the power, the black race will be in a large majority, and then we will have black governors, black legislatures, black juries, black everything. . . . The consequence will be that our men will be all exterminated or expelled to wander as vagabonds over a hostile Earth, and as for our women, their fate will be too horrible to contemplate even in fancy. Henry Lewis Benning
It chills my soul to think of American children behind barbed wire. Eleanor Roosevelt
Our friends must not expect us to do things we cannot do. George F. Kennan
On July 4, 1805, whites in Philadelphia drove blacks out of the square facing Independence Hall… On July 4, 1834, a white mob in New York City burned down the Broadway Tabernacle because of the anti-slavery and anti-racist views of the church leaders…. On July 4, 1935, a white mob in Cannan, New Hampshire destroyed a school that was open to blacks… Randall Kennedy
We have a situation where a young man is basically convicted of his own murder. Marcia L. Fudge
Racism is not merely a simplistic hatred. It is, more often broad sympathy toward some and broader skepticism toward others. Black America ever lives under that skeptical eye. Ta-Nehisi Coates
I am loyal to my country and know but reverence to her flag. But I shall never submit to fight beneath that banner with a negro at my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt, never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels … Robert Byrd
The central question is … whether the White community in the South is entitled to take such measures as are necessary to prevail, politically and culturally in which it does not predominate numerically. The sobering answer is Yes. The white community is so entitled because, for the time being, they are the more advanced race. William F. Buckley
As they wrote Jim Crowe into law, purveyors of sectional reconciliation largely erased the campaign for black equality—and often black people themselves—from the history books. Ira Berlin
I am a survivor of female genital mutilation. In 1990, when I was 8 years old, my mother told me to put on my best party dress. It was supposed to some kind of surprise, a celebration. I found myself instead in a Doctor’s office. I shouted and refused but the doctor gave me a shot. I woke up in terrible physical pain. Dalia Zaida
