racism

A Quote by Mr. on isms, ism, racism, sexism, persecution, labels, humanity, great spirits, and spirit

 

When humanity looks at ourselves without labels and just as great spirits, we will shed the "isms" (sexism, racism, etc.) and the persecutions that come with them.

A Quote by Earon on race, racism, racist, ape, primates, humans, black, african man, asian man, and oriental

When I look at an ape, I see myself and all humans.  When a racist looks at an ape, they see only an African man or an Asian man.

A Quote by Mr. on black in america, racism, and mr prophet

 

Imagine a child

Who doesn't have a place at the table

Who walks past houses where doors are shut to him

Who can't sit with others in public

Who can be beaten by strangers

For saying the wrong thing

Or for looking at a pretty girl

And what would you say if this was your child?

What would you say to a neighbor

Who taunted

and made fun of your children as they walked down the street?

Who slammed the door in their faces when they came asking for help?

Who didn't let them play with their children

Or to drink from a clean water fountain

Use a clean toilet

Or made them eat outside in the rain?

Who beat your children for looking them in the eye?

What would you give to be able to experience life from another

Person's perspective?

To more than know... to feel the truth?

That this is what it was like to be black in America.

A Quote by Derrick Z. Jackson on imprisonment, prison, illegal, drugs, salvia, and racism

From The Week March 28, 2008

America, Land of the Unfree  Derrick Z. Jackson The Boston Globe

What is the “world’s leading prison sate”?  asked Derrick Z. Jackson.  You might think it is repressive China or Putin’s Russia.  But as a recent Pew Center study recently revealed, it’s the U.S., where 2.3 million people – one out of every 100 adult Americans – now languish behind bars.  Per Capita, our rate of imprisonment easily exceeds that of Russia, is six times that of China, and seven times that of Germany and France.  The primary crime behind this swelling population is not robbery or murder but the sale and possession of drugs.  Under draconian laws adopted during the crack epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s, most of those sentenced to long prison terms are black:  One in 15 black men is in jail, compared to one in 106 white males.  Yet, in an amazing act of hypocrisy, the State Department last week issued an annual human-rights report that condemned Russia, Burma, and China for arbitrarily imprisoning too many of their citizens.  Nations that live in glass prisons shouldn’t throw stones.

A Quote by Edward Rodman "Rod" Serling on anti-semitism, holocaust, nazism, nazis, jews, prejudice, racism, and shoah

Dachau is left standing because it must be. All the Dachaus -- all the Belsens, all the Buchenwalds, all the Auschwitzes -- all of it. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the Earth into a graveyard. Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge...but worst of all, their consciences. And the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance, then we become the gravediggers. Something to think about, something to dwell on and remember...not only in the Twilight Zone, but wherever men walk God's Earth.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on burn, bomb, build, racism, justice, discrimination, prejudice, hope, and love

When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love. Where evil men would seek to perpetuate an unjust status quo, good men must seek to bring into being a real order of justice.

A Quote by W. Walter Williams on destruction, ethics, family, history, impossibility, kindness, liberals, racism, slavery, and work

History is not going to be kind to liberals. With their mindless programs, they've managed to do to Black Americans what slavery, Reconstruction, and rank racism found impossible: destroy their family and work ethic.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on acceptance, belief, brothers, love, mankind, peace, racism, reality, truth, and war

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become reality. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

A Quote by Malcolm X on behavior, colors, deed, islam, judgment, laws, nature, racism, and religion

I am a Muslim and . . . my religion makes me be against all forms of racism. It keeps me from judging any man by the color of his skin. It teaches me to judge him by his deeds and his conscious behavior. And it teaches me to be for the rights of all human beings, but especially the Afro-American human being, because my religion is a natural religion, and the first law of nature is self-preservation.
