A man's ethnic identity has more to do with a personal awareness than with geography. William Saroyan
The greatest guarantee for the preservation of a person’s identity is language and faith, and all Armenians must carry these two values. Sebouh Chouldjian
That differences of race, color, and creed are natural, and that diverse groups, institutions, and ideas are stimulating factors in the development of man; That to promote harmony in diversity is a responsible task of religion and statesmanship; That since no individual can express the whole truth, it is essential to treat with understanding and good will those whose views differ from our own; That by the testimony of history intolerance is the door to violence, brutality and dictatorship; and That the realization of human interdependence and solidarity is the best guard of civilization. Will Durant
History will show that the Celto-Saxon people have been the main builders, designers, engineers, explorers, and even humanitarians in comparison to any other race or nationality Dave Barley
Before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, we were here. Before the pen of Jefferson etched across the pages of history the majestic words of the Declaration of Independence, we were here. Martin Luther King Jr.
All that is needed to make us the finest race on Earth is to engraft upon us the negro element, which Providence has placed by our side on this continent.... The white people of America are dying for want of fresh blood . . . until church and state and society recognize not only the propriety but the necessity of the marriage of white and black.... in short, until the great truth shall be declared in our public documents and announced in the messages of our Presidents, that it is desirable that the white man shall marry the black woman and the white woman the black man. David. G. Croly
The white civilizers of India gave the world a great civilization …. The Hindoos used caste, supported by law and religion, to keep their blood pure. They used every remedial measure known to man except physical separation of the races in order to maintain racial integrity, but all their efforts failed and the result may be written in one word - amalgamation or mongrelization. Men who call themselves Hindoos still exist but in name only Theodore G. Bilbo
There is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. Abraham Lincoln
We are better off than all the other Black people in the entire world. We are the hope and aspiration of Blacks in the rest of the world. George Fraser
It will not accord with the laws of nature or history to brand colored people a race of cowards. On more than one historic field, beginning in 1776 and coming down to this centennial year of the Republic, they have attested in blood their courage as well as a love of liberty. Blanche K. Bruce
We are "sheep in the midst of wolves," and nothing but the military arm of the Government prevents us and all the truly loyal white men from being driven from the land of our birth. Anonymous
The constitutional principle of “one country, one nation” is so decisive as to reduce even our hundred and ten million Muslims, sixty million Akhoots, forty million Dravidians, seven million Christians, and six million Sikhs - to the position of mere sub-nations and satellites of the Indian nation, and thereby to disqualify each one of us from claiming the status of distinct sovereign nations in our own homelands. Chaudhari Rehmat Ali
The real problem is the built-in ideas in Muslim minds that they can always get something for nothing. They don't go to normal healthy schools where other boys and girls go for their training. They have to go to 'madrassahs' and then learn nothing. They are taught that the earth is flat; that the sun goes round the earth and Mecca is the center of gravity of the earth. Anwar Shaikh
An Englishman is a person who does things because they have been done before. An American is a person who does things because they haven't been done before. Mark Twain
Armenians, as a people that have survived the Genocide, have a moral duty towards mankind and history in the prevention of genocides. We have done and will continue to do our best to support the persistent implementation of the Genocide Convention. Genocide cannot concern only one people, because it is a crime against humanity. Serzh Sargsyan
Tribal affiliation is much more important than policy details. Chris Mooney (journalist)
There is little political cohesiveness within large ethnic groups, except when faced with an enemy ethnic group. Thomas Barfield
Shame on accursed Csarism which tortured and persecuted the Jews. Shame on those who foment hatred towards the Jews, who foment hatred towards other nations. Vladimir Lenin; Nikolai
The greatest guarantee for the preservation of a person’s identity is language and faith, and all Armenians must carry these two values. Sebouh Chouldjia
In fact, for blacks who have education and who have not succumbed to a new lifestyle—the grievances, and the coarseness represented by rap music—it’s gotten tremendously better. What’s disheartening, though, is that when you study ethnic groups around the world, the ones that are lagging behind are those where their leaders always tell the same story: that it’s other people holding you back, and that therefore you need to stand against those other people and resist their culture. But that culture may be the key to success. Thomas Sowell
The democratic option is the only alternative to solving the Kurdish question. Separation is neither possible nor necessary. We want peace, dialogue, and free political action within the framework of a democratic Turkish state. Abdullah Öcalan
New Orleans is truly a city of many nations, a melting pot, a bubbling cauldron of many cultures. There is no other place quite like it in the world that so eloquently exemplifies the uniquely American motto: e pluribus unum — out of many we are one. Mitch Landrieu
