A Quote by Mary McLeod Bethune on acceptance, conscience, discrimination, protest, responsibility, and slander
If we accept and acquiesce in the face of discrimination, we accept the responsibility ourselves and allow those responsible to salve their conscience by believing that they have our acceptance and concurrence. We should, therefore, protest openly everything . . . that smacks of discrimination or slander.
