For decades Southie had been immigrant Irish against the world, fighting first a losing battle againsnt shameful discrimination from the Yankee merchhants who had run Boston for centuries and then another one against mindless bureaucrats and an obdurate federal judge who imposed school busing on the "town" that hated outsiders to begin with. Both clashes were the kind of righteous fight that left residents the way they liked to be: bloodied but unbowed. The shared battles reaffirmed a view of life: never trust outsiders and never forget where you come from.Dick Lehr & Gerard O'Neill Against Discrimination Sayings By Dick Lehr & Gerard O'Neill: For decades Southie had been immigrant Irish against the world, fighting first a losing battle

I am often asked why there is discrimination against women in science. And I have given it some thought. With prejudicial attitudes, you can't really do much. You can point out when people discriminate and ask them not to.Christiane Nusslein-Volhard Against Discrimination Sayings By Christiane Nusslein-Volhard: I am often asked why there is discrimination against women in science. And I have
Women represent 70 percent of the 1.3 billion people in our world who live in absolute poverty. Consequently, as Joan Holmes, president of the Hunger Project, points out, any realistic efforts to change patterns of chronic hunger and poverty require changing traditions of discrimination against women.Riane Eisler Against Discrimination Sayings By Riane Eisler: Women represent 70 percent of the 1.3 billion people in our world who live in
I wasn't thinking about history. I was thinking about how we were going to end segregation at lunch counters in Atlanta, Georgia.We would have never thought about making history, we just thought: Here is our chance to get out our sense of rejection at this kind of racial discrimination. I don't know that there was a time that anybody growing up in the South wasn't enraged about being segregated and being discriminated against.Marian Wright Edelman Against Discrimination Sayings By Marian Wright Edelman: I wasn't thinking about history. I was thinking about how we were going to end
It is an old trick. The playgoer who does not like dirty plays is denounced as a prude; the music-lover who resents cacophony is told he is a pedant; and in all these matters the final crushing blow administered to the man of discrimination is the ascription to him of a hidebound prejudice against things that are new because they are new.Royal Cortissoz Against Discrimination Sayings By Royal Cortissoz: It is an old trick. The playgoer who does not like dirty plays is denounced
Martin Luther King challenged the conscience of my generation, and his words and his legacy continue to move generations to action today at home and around the world. His love and faith is alive in millions of Americans who volunteer each day in soup kitchens or in schools, or who refused to ignore the suffering of millions they'd never met in far-away places when a tsunami brought unthinkable destruction. His vision and his passion is alive in churches and on campuses when millions stand up against the injustice of discrimination anywhere, or the indifference that leaves too many behind.John F. Kerry Against Discrimination Sayings By John F. Kerry: Martin Luther King challenged the conscience of my generation, and his words and his legacy
As a young man in South Africa at the beginning of the twentieth century, Gandhi developed satyagraha, a mode of political activism based upon moral persuasion, while mobilizing South Africa's small Indian minority against racial discrimination.Pankaj Mishra Against Discrimination Sayings By Pankaj Mishra: As a young man in South Africa at the beginning of the twentieth century, Gandhi
Why would a black or brown nation stake its future on America's model of democracy when within its own borders the United States enforced discrimination and savagery against people who looked just like them? TheMargot Lee Shetterly Against Discrimination Sayings By Margot Lee Shetterly: Why would a black or brown nation stake its future on America's model of democracy
I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence.Coretta Scott King Against Discrimination Sayings By Coretta Scott King: I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Neglecting school children is violence.
If you propose there is a feminism problem in Korea, somebody would point out that you are bringing up antiquated issues. No one acknowledges that discrimination against women is still widespread.Kim Hyesoon Against Discrimination Sayings By Kim Hyesoon: If you propose there is a feminism problem in Korea, somebody would point out that
We've all been acculturated into accepting the inevitability of wrongful convictions, unfair sentences, racial bias, and racial disparities and discrimination against the poor.Bryan Stevenson Against Discrimination Sayings By Bryan Stevenson: We've all been acculturated into accepting the inevitability of wrongful convictions, unfair sentences, racial bias,
My father, a bookkeeper who never earned more than $11,000 a year in his life, sat there, writing out a $25 check to the NAACP. When I asked him why, he said discrimination against anyone is discrimination against us all. And I never forgot that. Indeed, his philanthropy was a gift, not just to that organization, but to me.Michael Bloomberg Against Discrimination Sayings By Michael Bloomberg: My father, a bookkeeper who never earned more than $11,000 a year in his life,
I don't think there's anything that is a greater area of discrimination against women today than the fact that nowhere in the world is there a female role model in team sports that more than half of a general audience would recognize.Warren Farrell Against Discrimination Sayings By Warren Farrell: I don't think there's anything that is a greater area of discrimination against women today
The prisons in the United States had long been an extreme reflection of the American system itself: the stark life differences between rich and poor, the racism, the use of victims against one another, the lack of resources of the underclass to speak out, the endless "reforms" that changed little. Dostoevski once said: "The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons."
It had long been true, and prisoners knew this better than anyone, that the poorer you were the more likely you were to end up in jail. This was not just because the poor committed more crimes. In fact, they did. The rich did not have to commit crimes to get what they wanted; the laws were on their side. But when the rich did commit crimes, they often were not prosecuted, and if they were they could get out on bail, hire clever lawyers, get better treatment from judges. Somehow, the jails ended up full of poor black people.
Howard Zinn Against Discrimination Sayings By Howard Zinn: The prisons in the United States had long been an extreme reflection of the American
Most recently my battle has been against AIDS and the discrimination surrounding it.Ryan White Against Discrimination Sayings By Ryan White: Most recently my battle has been against AIDS and the discrimination surrounding it.
Disability scholars Andrienne Asch and Erik Parens, in their seminal discussion of the problem, wrote,'Pre-natal diagnosis reinforces the medical model that disability itself, not societal discrimination against people with disabilities, is the problem to be solved.Andrew Solomon Against Discrimination Sayings By Andrew Solomon: Disability scholars Andrienne Asch and Erik Parens, in their seminal discussion of the problem, wrote,'Pre-natal
The Taliban's discrimination against women is completely opposed to the practice of the Prophet and the conduct of the first ummah. The Taliban are typically fundamentalist, however, in their highly selective vision of religion (which reflects their narrow education in some of the madrasahs of Pakistan), which perverts the faith and turns it in the opposite direction of what was intended. Like all the major faiths, Muslim fundamentalists, in their struggle to survive, make religion a tool of oppression and even of violence.Karen Armstrong Against Discrimination Sayings By Karen Armstrong: The Taliban's discrimination against women is completely opposed to the practice of the Prophet and
I voted for the Defense of Marriage Act but I do not believe we should institutionalize a form of discrimination against any minority by amending the Constitution.Ben Nighthorse Campbell Against Discrimination Sayings By Ben Nighthorse Campbell: I voted for the Defense of Marriage Act but I do not believe we should
What surprises me is-even though discrimination against women and racial discrimination still exist, they have improved a lot, especially among artists. And just when I felt I could finally take a break, I encounter the age discrimination. I turned 72 and started noticing a drastic difference in people's attitudes. I started with racism and sexism in the beginning and fought them so hard and was finally ready to relax. Then, here comes ageism, and I feel like, "Give me a break!"Yoko Ono Against Discrimination Sayings By Yoko Ono: What surprises me is-even though discrimination against women and racial discrimination still exist, they have
[O]ur revolt was as much against the traditional black leadership structure as it was against segregation and discrimination.John Lewis Against Discrimination Sayings By John Lewis: [O]ur revolt was as much against the traditional black leadership structure as it was against
In reaction against the age-old slogan, "woman is the weaker vessel," or the still more offensive, "woman is a divine creature," we have, I think, allowed ourselves to drift into asserting that "a woman is as good as a man," without always pausing to think what exactly we mean by that. What, I feel, we ought to mean is something so obvious that it is apt to escape attention altogether, viz: ( ... ) that a woman is just as much an ordinary human being as a man, with the same individual preferences, and with just as much right to the tastes and preferences of an individual. What is repugnant to every human being is to be reckoned always as a member of a class and not as an individual person.Dorothy L. Sayers Against Discrimination Sayings By Dorothy L. Sayers: In reaction against the age-old slogan, "woman is the weaker vessel," or the still more
Discrimination against Jews can be read in Thomas Aquinas, and insults against Jews in Martin Luther.Lionel Blue Against Discrimination Sayings By Lionel Blue: Discrimination against Jews can be read in Thomas Aquinas, and insults against Jews in Martin
[T]he full and complete development of a country, the welfare of the world and the cause of peace require the maximum participation of women on equal terms with men in all fields.
[Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (1979)]
United Nations Against Discrimination Sayings By United Nations: [T]he full and complete development of a country, the welfare of the world and the
I believe that my children, who are young, will look back on the early years of the 21st century in rather the same way I look back on the middle of the 20th: as a time when seemingly respectable people supported discrimination against Americans simply because those Americans were different from themselves.Jon Meacham Against Discrimination Sayings By Jon Meacham: I believe that my children, who are young, will look back on the early years
It is distressing to me that we live in an age in which we still must fight to protect our civil rights as Americans, in which a hate crime perpetrated against someone based their sexual orientation can go unpunished, and in which discrimination is being written into our laws.John Conyers Against Discrimination Sayings By John Conyers: It is distressing to me that we live in an age in which we still
Jinnah is a constant source of inspiration for all those who are fighting against racial and group discrimination.Nelson Mandela Against Discrimination Sayings By Nelson Mandela: Jinnah is a constant source of inspiration for all those who are fighting against racial
Everyone cares for disabled people, right? What they don't care for are genuine civil rights for disabled people. MARY JOHNSON tells the tortuous, enraging story of how Congress enacted a law that instead of protecting against discrimination has turned 'the disabled' into a political punching bag.William Greider Against Discrimination Sayings By William Greider: Everyone cares for disabled people, right? What they don't care for are genuine civil rights
I've called on Congress to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act to help end discrimination to help end discrimination against same-sex couples in this country. Now, I want to add we have a duty to uphold existing law, but I believe we must do so in a way that does not exacerbate old divides. And fulfilling this duty in upholding the law in no way lessens my commitment to reversing this law. I've made that clear.Barack Obama Against Discrimination Sayings By Barack Obama: I've called on Congress to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act to help end
This bill would allow an employee to bring a claim against an employer decades after the alleged initial act of discrimination occurred. Trial lawyers, you can be sure, are salivating at this very prospect.Buck McKeon Against Discrimination Sayings By Buck McKeon: This bill would allow an employee to bring a claim against an employer decades after
An isolated person requires correspondence as a means of seeing his ideas as others see them, and thus guarding against the dogmatisms and extravagances of solitary and uncorrected speculation. No man can learn to reason and appraise from a mere perusal of the writing of others. If he live not in the world, where he can observe the public at first hand and be directed toward solid reality by the force of conversation and spoken debate, then he must sharpen his discrimination and regulate his perceptive balance by an equivalent exchange of ideas in epistolary form.H.P. Lovecraft Against Discrimination Sayings By H.P. Lovecraft: An isolated person requires correspondence as a means of seeing his ideas as others see
Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to ensure fair pay for women in the workplace. In addition, he succeeded in getting a measure passed to end discrimination against gays in the military.Kitty Kelley Against Discrimination Sayings By Kitty Kelley: Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to ensure fair pay for women in
The answer to these questions is tied to the public's attitude about suicide. For many people, suicide is morally reprehensible. It's against their religion, or against their culture, or contrary to their personal values. Like other unpleasant subjects - incest, disease, discrimination - it's avoided.John Bateson Against Discrimination Sayings By John Bateson: The answer to these questions is tied to the public's attitude about suicide. For many
We still have gaps that are rooted in gender inequality. Certainly we have discrimination against the LGBT community.Hillary Clinton Against Discrimination Sayings By Hillary Clinton: We still have gaps that are rooted in gender inequality. Certainly we have discrimination against
Unfair discrimination exists whether we like it or not; I wouldn't have married a gum-chewing vegetarian. Ultimately, we'll help the people we discriminate against if we try to understand more about them; genetics will lead to a world where there is a sympathy for the underdog.John Kendrew Against Discrimination Sayings By John Kendrew: Unfair discrimination exists whether we like it or not; I wouldn't have married a gum-chewing
The conscious deployment of a double standard directed at the Jewish state and at no other state in the world, the willingness systematically to condemn the Jewish state for things others are not condemned for - this is not a higher standard. It is a discriminatory standard. And discrimination against Jews has a name too. The word for it is antisemitism. Time, February 26, 1990Charles Krauthammer Against Discrimination Sayings By Charles Krauthammer: The conscious deployment of a double standard directed at the Jewish state and at no
He who devoutly strives to attain wisdom and is on his guard against the invisible powers, should pray that both natural discrimination - whose light is but limited - and the illuminating grace of the Spirit abide in him. The first by means of practice trains the flesh in virtue, the second illuminates the intellect so that it chooses above all else companionship with wisdom; and through wisdom it destroys the strongholds of evil and pulls down 'all the self-esteem that exalts itself against the knowledge of God' (II Cor. 10:5).Maximus The Confessor Against Discrimination Sayings By Maximus The Confessor: He who devoutly strives to attain wisdom and is on his guard against the invisible
There are gays and lesbians in every country, so there should be no discrimination against them just because of their destiny.Hun Sen Against Discrimination Sayings By Hun Sen: There are gays and lesbians in every country, so there should be no discrimination against
My fight is not for racial sameness but for racial equality and against racial prejudice and discrimination.John Oliver Killens Against Discrimination Sayings By John Oliver Killens: My fight is not for racial sameness but for racial equality and against racial prejudice
Feminism as a movement for political and social equity is important, but feminism as an academic clique committed to eccentric doctrines about human nature is not. Eliminating discrimination against women is important, but believing that women and men are born with indistinguishable minds is not. Freedom of choice is important, but ensuring that women make up exactly 50 percent of all professions is not. And eliminating sexual assaults is important, but advancing the theory that rapists are doing their part in a vast male conspiracy is not.Steven Pinker Against Discrimination Sayings By Steven Pinker: Feminism as a movement for political and social equity is important, but feminism as an
Really living like Christ will not mean reward, social recognition, and an assured income, but difficulties, discrimination, solitude, anxiety. Here, too, the basic experience of the cross applies: the wider we open our hearts to others, the more audibly we intervene against the injustice that rules over us, the more difficult our lives in the rich unjust society will become.Dorothee Solle Against Discrimination Sayings By Dorothee Solle: Really living like Christ will not mean reward, social recognition, and an assured income, but
The Middle East is ailing. The malady stems from pervasive violence, shortages of food, water and educational opportunities, discrimination against women and - the most virulent cause of all - the absence of freedom.Shimon Peres Against Discrimination Sayings By Shimon Peres: The Middle East is ailing. The malady stems from pervasive violence, shortages of food, water
U.S. history that while the nation fought its greatest war against the world's worst racist, it maintained a segregated army abroad and a total system of discrimination at home.Stephen E. Ambrose Against Discrimination Sayings By Stephen E. Ambrose: U.S. history that while the nation fought its greatest war against the world's worst racist,
The money men make from their willingness to work the least desirable hours is not a sign of discrimination against women, but a sign of the willingness of mostly married men to lose sleep to support the family as their wife loses sleep to feed the child. A willingness to do the uncomfortable shifts is one reason married men earn more than twice what never-married men earn. Men's contribution, made at night, need not be lost in the dark.Warren Farrell Against Discrimination Sayings By Warren Farrell: The money men make from their willingness to work the least desirable hours is not
Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It's beyond me.Zora Neale Hurston Against Discrimination Sayings By Zora Neale Hurston: Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes
The FBI has had a history of sex discrimination complaints brought against it, as well as race discrimination.Anita Hill Against Discrimination Sayings By Anita Hill: The FBI has had a history of sex discrimination complaints brought against it, as well
As a journalist in Providence, I was particularly drawn toward stories about women's issues: I wrote about discrimination, abortion, violence against women. I wrote about women's health, sexism in the media, cultural imagery. I even wrote about women (other women) with eating disorders. And quietly, privately, I starved myself half to death. There you have it: intellectual belief without the correlary of emotional roots; feminist power understood in the mind but not known, somehow, in the body.Caroline Knapp Against Discrimination Sayings By Caroline Knapp: As a journalist in Providence, I was particularly drawn toward stories about women's issues: I
Those prisoners who were eventually liberated and returned to the Soviet Union - well over one and a half million - had to face extensive discrimination following an order issued by Stalin in August 1941 equating surrender with treason. Many of them were despatched to the labour camps of the Gulag after being screened by Soviet military counter-intelligence. Despite attempts after Stalin's death by top military leader Marshal Georgi Zhukov to end discrimination against former prisoners of war, they were not formally rehabilitated until 1994.217Richard J. Evans Against Discrimination Sayings By Richard J. Evans: Those prisoners who were eventually liberated and returned to the Soviet Union - well over
The Monster Ball is by nature a protest: A youth church experience to speak out and celebrate against all forms of discrimination + prejudice.Lady Gaga Against Discrimination Sayings By Lady Gaga: The Monster Ball is by nature a protest: A youth church experience to speak out
By exiling human judgment in the last few decades, modern law changed role from useful tool to brainless tyrant. This legal regime will never be up to the job, any more than the Soviet system of central planning was, because ti can't think. The comedy of law's sterile logic
large POISON signs warning against common sand, spending twenty-two years on pesticide review and deciding next to nothing, allowing fifty-year-old white men to sue for discrimination
is all too reminiscent of the old jokes we used to hear about life in the Eastern bloc.
Judgement is to law as water is to crops. It should not be surprising that law has become brittle, and society along with it.
Philip K. Howard Against Discrimination Sayings By Philip K. Howard: By exiling human judgment in the last few decades, modern law changed role from useful
To positively discriminate in favour of groups that have been negatively discriminated against in the past.Ben Elton Against Discrimination Sayings By Ben Elton: To positively discriminate in favour of groups that have been negatively discriminated against in the
I am determined to try to rebuild and renew this country in ways that will build community and level the playing field ... To me, that means making certain that the fight to preserve our civil liberties is waged, making certain the fight against discrimination is waged, making certain that women have opportunity in this country.Carol Moseley Braun Against Discrimination Sayings By Carol Moseley Braun: I am determined to try to rebuild and renew this country in ways that will
In the era of colorblindness, it is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. So we don't. Rather than rely on race, we use our criminal justice system to label people of color "criminals" and then engage in all the practices we supposedly left behind. Today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African Americans. Once you're labeled a felon, the old forms of discrimination - employment discrimination, housing discrimination, denial of the right to vote, denial of educational opportunity, denial of food stamps and other public benefits, and exclusion from jury service - are suddenly legal. As a criminal, you have scarcely more rights, and arguably less respect, than a black man living in Alabama at the height of Jim Crow. We have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.Michelle Alexander Against Discrimination Sayings By Michelle Alexander: In the era of colorblindness, it is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly,
Every discrimination against women in the constitutions and laws of the several States is today null and void, precisely as in every one against Negroes.Susan B. Anthony Against Discrimination Sayings By Susan B. Anthony: Every discrimination against women in the constitutions and laws of the several States is today
I am not against migration. It is simply pragmatic to restrict migration, while at the same time encouraging integration and fighting discrimination. I support the idea of the free movement of goods, people, money and jobs in Europe.Ayaan Hirsi Ali Against Discrimination Sayings By Ayaan Hirsi Ali: I am not against migration. It is simply pragmatic to restrict migration, while at the
It is time to end the discrimination against people who need treatment for chemical addiction. It is time for Congress to deal with our Nation's number one public health problem.Jim Ramstad Against Discrimination Sayings By Jim Ramstad: It is time to end the discrimination against people who need treatment for chemical addiction.
(In 2006, social psychologist Bella DePaulo, PhD, coined the word singlism to mean "the stereotyping, stigmatizing, and discrimination against people who are single.")Kate Bolick Against Discrimination Sayings By Kate Bolick: (In 2006, social psychologist Bella DePaulo, PhD, coined the word singlism to mean "the stereotyping,
The word conservative means discriminatory practically. It's a form of political discrimination. What do the Republicans run on? Against gay marriage and for a war that makes no sense. A war that was based on faulty intelligence. That's all they ever talk about. That and immigration. Another discriminatory argument for political gain.Charles Barkley Against Discrimination Sayings By Charles Barkley: The word conservative means discriminatory practically. It's a form of political discrimination. What do the
Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8.Brad Pitt Against Discrimination Sayings By Brad Pitt: Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree
A genocide in Africa has not received the same attention that genocide in Europe or genocide in Turkey or genocide in other part of the world. There is still this kind of basic discrimination against the African people and the African problems.Boutros Boutros-Ghali Against Discrimination Sayings By Boutros Boutros-Ghali: A genocide in Africa has not received the same attention that genocide in Europe or
To Learn is to create. Learning- whether it is programming, mathematics, art, music, poetry, biology, or chemistry- is all about breaking down walls and freeing the one thing that kept us alive: knowledge.

Knowledge expands freedom in all its forms. Knowledge breaks down walls. It liberates the oppressed. We are committed to knowledge. Knowledge as a hammer against classism, against sexism, against racism, against gender discrimination, against slavery, against bigotry, against war, against hatred. If there is darkness in the world, we will light it up.
Leopoldo Gout Against Discrimination Sayings By Leopoldo Gout: To Learn is to create. Learning- whether it is programming, mathematics, art, music, poetry, biology,
Here they are today, the Democrats; they're making this big deal about how this woman [Hillary Clinton] has overcome all of this discrimination. She has overcome the biggest guns of opposition that have been arrayed against her!Rush Limbaugh Against Discrimination Sayings By Rush Limbaugh: Here they are today, the Democrats; they're making this big deal about how this woman
There should be no discrimination against languages people speak, skin color, or religion.Malala Yousafzai Against Discrimination Sayings By Malala Yousafzai: There should be no discrimination against languages people speak, skin color, or religion.
They always try to make it like jocks discriminate against gay people. I've been a big proponent of gay marriage for a long time, because as a black person, I can't be in for any form of discrimination at all.Charles Barkley Against Discrimination Sayings By Charles Barkley: They always try to make it like jocks discriminate against gay people. I've been a
Any honest conversation about engaging young people must address discrimination against young people.Adam Fletcher Against Discrimination Sayings By Adam Fletcher: Any honest conversation about engaging young people must address discrimination against young people.
Diversity is a very popular business topic today while the negative side of diversity, discrimination, remains a touchy and sensitive topic. Even in organisations which follow the letter of the law in terms of not discriminating against any individuals, it is common for people to show prejudice and bias...Have the courage to stand out from your colleagues by being very open to and comfortable with all kinds of diversity amongst your colleagues and stakeholders. When you sense someone is being ignored or marginalized spend time with them and bring them into discussions encouraging them to speak up as needed.Nigel Cumberland Against Discrimination Sayings By Nigel Cumberland: Diversity is a very popular business topic today while the negative side of diversity, discrimination,
Long before there was discrimination against blacks, there was discrimination against white southerners. When large numbers of these country people moved north during World War II, they were aggressively excluded from neighborhoods, jobs, and homes - not because of their skin color, but their accents.Ann Coulter Against Discrimination Sayings By Ann Coulter: Long before there was discrimination against blacks, there was discrimination against white southerners. When large

I'm so sick of liberal lefty men practicing sexual discrimination under the guise
Racial discrimination against a white is as unconstitutional as race discrimination against a black.William O. Douglas Against Discrimination Sayings By William O. Douglas: Racial discrimination against a white is as unconstitutional as race discrimination against a black.
Communism will never be defeated by atomic bombs. Our greatest defense against Communism is to take offensive action on behalf of justice and righteousness. We must seek to remove conditions of poverty, injustice, and racial discrimination.Martin Luther King Jr. Against Discrimination Sayings By Martin Luther King Jr.: Communism will never be defeated by atomic bombs. Our greatest defense against Communism is to
If there's age discrimination - and there may be - I've always felt that the person who discriminates is hurt more than the person being discriminated against, if the second person shucks it off and moves forward.Marv Levy Against Discrimination Sayings By Marv Levy: If there's age discrimination - and there may be - I've always felt that the
Do battle against prejudice and discrimination wherever you find it.H. Jackson Brown Jr. Against Discrimination Sayings By H. Jackson Brown Jr.: Do battle against prejudice and discrimination wherever you find it.
Out of the temptation of Hate, and burned by the fire of Despair, triumphant over Doubt, and steeled by Sacrifice against Humiliation, ... He bent to all the gibes and prejudices, to all hatred and discrimination with that rare courtesy which is the armor of pure souls ... he simply worked, inspiring the young, rebuking the old, helping the weak, guiding the strong.W.E.B. Du Bois Against Discrimination Sayings By W.E.B. Du Bois: Out of the temptation of Hate, and burned by the fire of Despair, triumphant over
I do not see that the sex of the candidate is an argument against her admission as a Privatdozent. After all, the Senate is not a bathhouse. Objecting to sex discrimination being the reason for rejection of Emmy Noether's application to join the faculty at the University of Gottingen.David Hilbert Against Discrimination Sayings By David Hilbert: I do not see that the sex of the candidate is an argument against her
When you look at the Justice Department's report talking about the Ferguson Police Department's rampant pattern of discrimination and its excessive use of force against African-American citizens, it's hard to try to rationalize how this cesspool of racism doesn't spill over onto the individual officers.Benjamin Crump Against Discrimination Sayings By Benjamin Crump: When you look at the Justice Department's report talking about the Ferguson Police Department's rampant
Through its inability to solve its racial problems, the United States handed the Soviet Union one of the most effective propaganda weapons in their arsenal.
Newly independent countries around the world, eager for alliances that would support their emerging identities and set them on their path to long-term prosperity, were confronted with a version of the same question black Americans had asked during World War II. Why would a black or brown nation stake its future on America's model of democracy when within its own borders the United States enforced discrimination and savagery against people who looked just like them?
Margot Lee Shetterly Against Discrimination Sayings By Margot Lee Shetterly: Through its inability to solve its racial problems, the United States handed the Soviet Union
Gay adoption is discrimination against childrenPope Francis Against Discrimination Sayings By Pope Francis: Gay adoption is discrimination against children
For as long as the power of America's diversity is diminished by acts of discrimination and violence against people just because they are black, Hispanic, Asian, Jewish, Muslim or gay, we still must overcome.Ron Kind Against Discrimination Sayings By Ron Kind: For as long as the power of America's diversity is diminished by acts of discrimination
There are some well-meaning liberals who continue to cling to colorblindness out of loyalty to a utopian vision of a raceless society. But for most fans of colorblindness, its attraction lies in that it sounds fair - even as it fosters the impression that discrimination against whites is rampant, and works assiduously to defeat policies actually geared to achieving integration.Ian F. Haney-Lopez Against Discrimination Sayings By Ian F. Haney-Lopez: There are some well-meaning liberals who continue to cling to colorblindness out of loyalty to
We have the disgrace of racial discrimination, or we have prejudice against people because of their religion. We have not had the courage to uproot these things, although we know they are wrong.Dwight D. Eisenhower Against Discrimination Sayings By Dwight D. Eisenhower: We have the disgrace of racial discrimination, or we have prejudice against people because of
I traveled from city to city in those days, and the view from within the ghettos was terrible and terrifying. While white people in the periphery were arming themselves against the day when they would have to defend themselves from attack by blacks (and really believed someone was fomenting a racial war in which black people would rise up and attack them), black people mostly without arms huddled inside the ghettos feeling that they were surrounded by armed whites.John Howard Griffin Against Discrimination Sayings By John Howard Griffin: I traveled from city to city in those days, and the view from within the
Sex discrimination and hate crimes against women don't come from the leather community or its pornography. They occur within contexts like industrial capitalism and marriage that most people take for granted as if they had always existed, like gravity or continental drift. If feminism is going to change the world, it has to focus its critical lens on what most people think is normal, not on what most people think is abnormal.Patrick Califia-Rice Against Discrimination Sayings By Patrick Califia-Rice: Sex discrimination and hate crimes against women don't come from the leather community or its
We have restricted humans from giving 'free' food to bears and dolphins because we know that such feeding would make them dependent and lead to their extinction. But when it comes to our own species, we have difficulty seeing the connection between short-term kindness and long-term cruelty; we give women money to have more children, making them more dependent with each child and discouraging them from developing the tools to fend for themselves. The real discrimination against women, then, is 'free feeding'.Warren Farrell Against Discrimination Sayings By Warren Farrell: We have restricted humans from giving 'free' food to bears and dolphins because we know

The true France is a multicultural France. Where someone is appointed minister not because she is a woman but because she is competent. And not because she is from a visible minority. I am against positive discrimination. Someone can be intelligent and black, and someone can be an imbecile and white.Patrick Gaubert Against Discrimination Sayings By Patrick Gaubert: The true France is a multicultural France. Where someone is appointed minister not because she
I've also been reminded recently that while as a society we are moving toward greater inclusion and equality for all people, the tide of history only advances when people make themselves fully visible. There continue to be far too many incidences of bullying of young people, as well as discrimination and violence against people of all ages, based on their sexual orientation, and I believe there is value in making clear where I stand.Anderson Cooper Against Discrimination Sayings By Anderson Cooper: I've also been reminded recently that while as a society we are moving toward greater
If I saw a restaurant owner refuse to serve a gay couple, I wouldn't eat there anymore. As governor of Indiana, if I were presented a bill that legalized discrimination against any person or group, I would veto it.Mike Pence Against Discrimination Sayings By Mike Pence: If I saw a restaurant owner refuse to serve a gay couple, I wouldn't eat
Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality. It has systematically incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians, contrary to the rules of international law. It has, in particular, waged a war against a civilian population, in particular children.Nelson Mandela Against Discrimination Sayings By Nelson Mandela: Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty
Like the vast majority of Americans, I've opposed same-sex marriage, but I've also opposed unjust discrimination against anyone, for racial or religious reasons, or for sexual preference. Americans are a tolerant, generous, and kind people. We all oppose bigotry and disparagement. But the debate over same-sex marriage is not a debate over tolerance. It is a debate about the purpose of the institution of marriage and it is a debate about activist judges who make up the law rather than interpret the law.Mitt Romney Against Discrimination Sayings By Mitt Romney: Like the vast majority of Americans, I've opposed same-sex marriage, but I've also opposed unjust
I think people don't think I work, because I wear stilettos and look damn fine. But that's discrimination against stilettos and against looking damn fine!

Above all, it seems to me wrongheaded and dangerous to invoke historical assumptions about environmental practices of native peoples in order to justify treating them fairly ... By invoking this assumption [i.e., that they were/are better environmental stewards than other peoples or parts of contemporary society] to justify fair treatment of native peoples, we imply that it would be OK to mistreat them if that assumption could be refuted. In fact, the case against mistreating them isn't based on any historical assumption about their environmental practices: it's based on a moral principle, namely, that it is morally wrong for one people to dispossess, subjugate or exterminate another people.Jared Diamond Against Discrimination Sayings By Jared Diamond: Above all, it seems to me wrongheaded and dangerous to invoke historical assumptions about environmental
I do note with interest that old women in my books become young women on the covers ... this is discrimination against the chronologically gifted.Terry Pratchett Against Discrimination Sayings By Terry Pratchett: I do note with interest that old women in my books become young women on
Style begins with the people passing through one's life, the harbingers we push against and the stylemakers we want to clone. Some are famous, some not. Style grows from admiration, from longing, from discrimination - and, yes, from love. It's all the places you've been to and the people and the moments you've known: the parts you've adopted, to keep forever, and transformed. We wear our history in our hearts and on our backs.Carol Edgarian Against Discrimination Sayings By Carol Edgarian: Style begins with the people passing through one's life, the harbingers we push against and
