The other thing about the Nights is that it is quite racist. One parentheses is that I think this is one of the negative things that appeal to people, that The Arabian Nights could be used as a disguise for racism. It suited the West. You could smuggle racism into children's literature, you see. The African magician in the story of Aladdin, he's labeled explicitly as the "African Magician." He's not a character but a stereotype, and a lot of this got into nursery literature in this Oriental disguise.Marina Warner Racism's Sayings By Marina Warner: The other thing about the Nights is that it is quite racist. One parentheses is
The beginning point at both conferences must be that everything is a woman's issue. That means racism in a woman's issue, just as is anti-Semitism, Palestinian homelessness, rural development, ecology, the persecution of lesbians, and the exploitative practices of global corporations.Charlotte Bunch Racism's Sayings By Charlotte Bunch: The beginning point at both conferences must be that everything is a woman's issue. That
Superior, do you understand me? These are white people. They are not like you, or me or us. They have the power to hurt you ... and sometimes it's fun to them when they do. Their power is not because they are smart ... it's because ... something happened sometime ... started somewhere and they got on top of the world. They got the power. The only power you got is to learn to live with them, learn to read their minds ... til you can do better. They don't treat each other right ... so don't you look to be treated right. You hear me? Sometimes there's good white people ... but don't you act like that til you know that.J. California Cooper Racism's Sayings By J. California Cooper: Superior, do you understand me? These are white people. They are not like you, or
[The media's] fantasy of an America bristling with racists allows them to portray any criticism of our massively incompetent and dangerous president as just another sad episode of oh-so-typical white racism.Ann Coulter Racism's Sayings By Ann Coulter: [The media's] fantasy of an America bristling with racists allows them to portray any criticism
Kids in North Lawndale need not be confused about their prospects: Cook County's Juvenile Temporary Detention Center sits directly adjacent to the neighborhood.Ta-Nehisi Coates Racism's Sayings By Ta-Nehisi Coates: Kids in North Lawndale need not be confused about their prospects: Cook County's Juvenile Temporary
Sexism and racism and homophobia and classism are so naturalized. All these stereotypes make people think it's just normal that straight white men are getting all the breaks.Kathleen Hanna Racism's Sayings By Kathleen Hanna: Sexism and racism and homophobia and classism are so naturalized. All these stereotypes make people
We have to stop making excuses. One of the things that I'm careful to show is the horrendous effects of institutional and structural racism, but in the end, you can't wait for white man or a Black man to come riding in on a white horse to save you. We have to save ourselves, and that's the lesson of "The African Americans."Henry Louis Gates Racism's Sayings By Henry Louis Gates: We have to stop making excuses. One of the things that I'm careful to show
CHILDREN Are Like ANGELS And On Earth, ANGELS Have No Color ... It's The Society To Blame That Teaches Racism, Turning An ANGLE To A Civilized Beast While They Are Growing Up ...Muhammad Imran Hasan Racism's Sayings By Muhammad Imran Hasan: CHILDREN Are Like ANGELS And On Earth, ANGELS Have No Color ... It's The Society
a vast majority of employers now Google your name - yes, Google has become both noun and verb - before they'll consider hiring you. There's your new resume, using the word resume loosely. Bye, bye, control. Statistics are hard to come by, and they tend to be all over the map. Some are from very old surveys or very limited surveys (such as 100 employers). What we know for sure is that somewhere between 35% and 70% of employers now report that they have rejected applicants on the basis of what they found through Google. Things that can get you rejected: bad grammar or gross misspelling on your Facebook or LinkedIn profile; anything indicating you lied on your resume; any badmouthing of previous employers; any signs of racism, prejudice, or screwy opinions about stuff; anything indicating alcohol or drug abuse; and any - to put it delicately - inappropriate content, etc.Richard N. Bolles Racism's Sayings By Richard N. Bolles: a vast majority of employers now Google your name - yes, Google has become both
Try to imagine how you would feel if you woke up one morning to find the sun shining and all the stars aflame. You would be frightened because it is out of the order of nature. Any upheaval in the universe is terrifying because it so profoundly attacks one's sense of one's own reality. Well, the black man has functioned in the white man's world as a fixed star, as an immovable pillar: and as he moves out of his place, heaven and earth are shaken to their foundation.James Baldwin Racism's Sayings By James Baldwin: Try to imagine how you would feel if you woke up one morning to find
As we come to know the seriousness of the situation, the war, the racism, the poverty in our world, we come to realize that things will not be changed simply by words or demonstrations. Rather, it's a question of living one's life in a drastically different way.Dorothy Day Racism's Sayings By Dorothy Day: As we come to know the seriousness of the situation, the war, the racism, the
People didn't call blacks names anymore, at least not to their faces. Italians weren't wops or dagos, and there were no more kikes, Japs, chinks, or spics in polite conversation. Everybody had a group to protest and stick up for them. But women were still being called names by men. Why? Where was our group? It's not fair.Fannie Flagg Racism's Sayings By Fannie Flagg: People didn't call blacks names anymore, at least not to their faces. Italians weren't wops
America is supposed to pride itself on freedom of religion, race, and class. It's something that is carried on from ignorance and territorialism. I don't know if it's a transcendental pre-colonial mentality but I don't see too many other races of people trippin' about who is coming in and coming out. I think it's primarily racism disguised as class wars.Myka 9 Racism's Sayings By Myka 9: America is supposed to pride itself on freedom of religion, race, and class. It's something
[Chief White Halfoat:] Racial prejudice is a terrible thing, Yossarian. It really is. It's a terrible thing to treat a decent, loyal Indian like a nigger, kike, wop, or spic.Joseph Heller Racism's Sayings By Joseph Heller: [Chief White Halfoat:] Racial prejudice is a terrible thing, Yossarian. It really is. It's a
African-Americans know about racism, but I don't think we really know the causes. I decided it's first of all a family problem.Bebe Moore Campbell Racism's Sayings By Bebe Moore Campbell: African-Americans know about racism, but I don't think we really know the causes. I decided
We cannot reform institutional racism or systemic policies if we are not actively engaged. It's not enough to simply complain about injustice; the only way to prevent future injustice is to create the society we would like to see, one where we are all equal under the law.Al Sharpton Racism's Sayings By Al Sharpton: We cannot reform institutional racism or systemic policies if we are not actively engaged. It's
If the problem of the twentieth century was, in W. E. B. Du Bois's famous words, "the problem of the color line," then the problem of the twenty-first century is the problem of colorblindness, the refusal to acknowledge the causes and consequences of enduring racial stratification.Naomi Murakawa Racism's Sayings By Naomi Murakawa: If the problem of the twentieth century was, in W. E. B. Du Bois's famous
The lessons of the past suggest that racism and resentment against people of color will continue to flourish in America as long as the history that is taught transposes the heroes and the villains. That is the unspoken truth at the heart of the nation's racial divide.Susan L. Taylor Racism's Sayings By Susan L. Taylor: The lessons of the past suggest that racism and resentment against people of color will
There's still racism. Western Europe ... has taken the native cultures of the Americas, the African cultures, the Asian civilization and lumped them together into The Others.Hans Rosling Racism's Sayings By Hans Rosling: There's still racism. Western Europe ... has taken the native cultures of the Americas, the
The Sons of the Serpent - they want you angry. At the world. They need us all to feel like victims. And it's an easy get, because times suck. Every day is a battle. We all feel like we're on the wrong end of the wrecking ball. We feel at the mercy of forces beyond our control, and that makes us scared. And that's rocket fuel for S.O.B.'s like the Serpents. They prey on us when we're frightened. They tell us our enemies are the immigrants down the street, or the food stamp family next door. They encourage us to turn our fear into rage, and we fall for it because it's 'empowering.' Except it's not. We don't become 'empowered.' We become weaponized.Mark Waid Racism's Sayings By Mark Waid: The Sons of the Serpent - they want you angry. At the world. They need
The race thing is sort of a misnomer. It's just the human race, right? That's it. The rest of it, and racism, is socially constructed. Nobody is born racist, no one. What happens is other things that are usually based on power, money, feeling good about yourself, or bad about yourself, those things play into hating other people for whatever reason.Toni Morrison Racism's Sayings By Toni Morrison: The race thing is sort of a misnomer. It's just the human race, right? That's
I'm inspired by people like Nelson Mandela. Can you imagine - you know how racist America was back then - imagine how racism was in South Africa when he had to stand up and say what he had to say. That's bravery beyond comprehension.Nas Racism's Sayings By Nas: I'm inspired by people like Nelson Mandela. Can you imagine - you know how racist
It's hard to say when or if we will actually arrive at that place called 'post-racial', or, better yet, post-racism.Tim Wise Racism's Sayings By Tim Wise: It's hard to say when or if we will actually arrive at that place called
Everyone's a racist. It's the one thing that makes us all the same.Christopher Titus Racism's Sayings By Christopher Titus: Everyone's a racist. It's the one thing that makes us all the same.
but racism is about the power of a group and in America it's white folks who have that power. How? Well, white folks don't get treated like shit in upper-class African-American communities and white folks don't get denied bank loans or mortgages precisely because they are white and black juries don't give white criminals worse sentences than black criminals for the same crime and black police officers don't stop white folk for driving while white and black companies don't choose not to hire somebody because their name sounds white and black teachers don't tell white kids that they're not smart enough to be doctors and black politicians don't try some tricks to reduce the voting power of white folks through gerrymandering and advertising agencies don't say they can't use white models to advertise glamorous products because they are not considered "aspirational" by the "mainstream." SoChimamanda Ngozi Adichie Racism's Sayings By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: but racism is about the power of a group and in America it's white folks
If we are to be honest with ourselves, we must admit that the "Negro" has been inviting whites, as well as civil society's junior partners, to the dance of social death for hundreds of years, but few have wanted to learn the steps. They have been, and remain today - even in the most anti-racist movements, like the prison abolition movement - invested elsewhere. This is not to say that all oppositional political desire today is pro-white, but it is usually anti-Black, meaning it will not dance with death.Frank B. Wilderson III Racism's Sayings By Frank B. Wilderson III: If we are to be honest with ourselves, we must admit that the "Negro" has
Racism does not have a good track record. It's been tried out for a long time and you'd think by now we'd want to put an end to it instead of putting it under new management.
Thomas Sowell Racism's Sayings By Thomas Sowell: Racism does not have a good track record. It's been tried out for a long
It's not loving a man that makes life harder for gay guys, it's homophobia. It's not the color of their skin that makes life harder for people of color; it's racism. It's not having vaginas that makes life harder for women, it's sexism. And it's ageism, far more than the passage of time, that makes growing older harder for all of us.Ashton Applewhite Racism's Sayings By Ashton Applewhite: It's not loving a man that makes life harder for gay guys, it's homophobia. It's
Why does a government agency that has no connection with my community have the right to dictate what is appropriate for it?Simon S. Tam Racism's Sayings By Simon S. Tam: Why does a government agency that has no connection with my community have the right
The relevant question is not whether back then a few extraordinary individuals could overcome a system strongly weighted against them or whether today an admittedly far greater number requiring far less talent can succeed. The real question is whether it's harder for the people in this audience to succeed be they extraordinary, average, or below average. If it is, and I think it obvious that it is, then that's untenable in a country that purports to provide equal opportunity for all. Now of course you'll dispute my claim that it is more difficult to succeed for them. You say the battle's over. I say not only is it not over but you yourself are stationed on the frontline of the battle and have been all these years. This room and the criminal justice system as a whole is the frontline. This is where modern-day segregation lives on.Sergio De La Pava Racism's Sayings By Sergio De La Pava: The relevant question is not whether back then a few extraordinary individuals could overcome a
Racism ... fuelled by bitter assertions that no immigrant ever has the least respect for the environment in his adopted country because he never really believes it's his.James Hamilton-Paterson Racism's Sayings By James Hamilton-Paterson: Racism ... fuelled by bitter assertions that no immigrant ever has the least respect for
In a manner akin to the influence of Tiger Woods on the other side of the Atlantic, Thierry Henry has helped kick down a few of the remaining bigoted stereotypes. Through his undisputable class and dignity, Henry has made a deep-seated difference to race relations in this country. Racism will flounder whenever white children grow up with a black man as their hero. That so few comment on Henry's colour is a silent tribute to his impact.Pete Gill Racism's Sayings By Pete Gill: In a manner akin to the influence of Tiger Woods on the other side of
Simply put, white cops are afraid of black men. We don't talk about it, we pretend it doesn't exist, we claim "color blindness," we say white officers treat black men the same way they treat white men. But that's a lie. In fact, the bigger, the darker the black man the greater the fear. The African-American community knows this. Hell, most whites know it. Yet, even though it's a central, if not the defining ingredient in the makeup of police racism, white cops won't admit it to themselves, or to others.Norm Stamper Racism's Sayings By Norm Stamper: Simply put, white cops are afraid of black men. We don't talk about it, we
Racism is a sign of ignorance, in my opinion. It's people who haven't been anywhere, haven't seen the world.Tyson Fury Racism's Sayings By Tyson Fury: Racism is a sign of ignorance, in my opinion. It's people who haven't been anywhere,
People - teachers, other students, parents - constantly made offhand comments that didn't mean much to them, but I read something else in their words. A hidden language that told me I was different. Or maybe I was so aware of my own difference that I was just looking to be offended by other people's words.Aditi Khorana Racism's Sayings By Aditi Khorana: People - teachers, other students, parents - constantly made offhand comments that didn't mean much
To have one's race brutally treated for so many years, even after the end of slavery and segregation, people are going to rise up with violence to attain what they believe is rightfully theirs. The most important thing at this time is raising the awareness of everyone; people need to be educated everywhere about all aspects of racism and how it affects people still today.Assata Shakur Racism's Sayings By Assata Shakur: To have one's race brutally treated for so many years, even after the end of
America's put American Black Folks in such a bad position, empty plates and glasses now get us full.Darnell Lamont Walker Racism's Sayings By Darnell Lamont Walker: America's put American Black Folks in such a bad position, empty plates and glasses now
I grew up in a very loving middle class family. My parents were educators. I'm not even the first PhD in my family. They tried to shield me, just as other parents in my neighborhood tried to shield their children. But you knew there was a reason that you couldn't go to that theme park or to a movie theater or to a hamburger stand. They couldn't shield you completely. What they did though was they never let it be an excuse for not achieving, and they always said racism is somebody else's problem, not yours. They tried in that way not to make us bitter about Birmingham.Condoleezza Rice Racism's Sayings By Condoleezza Rice: I grew up in a very loving middle class family. My parents were educators. I'm
What's wrong with leading the way? We've played that role before, after all. We gave the world the secret ballot ... that did so much to raise living standards and improve conditions for workers worldwide. We were a leader in extending to women the right to vote. We were barely a nation when we set the bar for bravery and sacrifice by common soldiers in foreign wars. We grew up out of racism and misogyny and homophobia to become a mostly tolerant, successful multicultural society. We did these great things because we know we are in it together. It is our core value as Australians.Geraldine Brooks Racism's Sayings By Geraldine Brooks: What's wrong with leading the way? We've played that role before, after all. We gave
the data we see in this chapter shows racism isn't a problem of outliers. It is pervasive. We've seen the same patterns repeated on three different sites, with different users and different experiences: men, women, free, subscription-only, casual, serious, "urban" demographics, and more "mainstream." All told, the research set represents a large chunk of the young adults in this country, and the data uniformly shows non-blacks discount African American profiles. It's not a problem caused by a small cluster of "ugly" black users or by a small group of unreformed racists throwing off an otherwise regular pattern.Christian Rudder Racism's Sayings By Christian Rudder: the data we see in this chapter shows racism isn't a problem of outliers. It
As for the charm and innocence I hoped to find -- it exists, it really does, but consider what it's buried in. Racism. Misogyny and homophobia so absolute as to be nearly universal. Hatred of the Irish, the Italians, the Chinese -- not that many of them are seen in these partsRobert Charles Wilson Racism's Sayings By Robert Charles Wilson: As for the charm and innocence I hoped to find -- it exists, it really
They tell us race is an invention, that there is no genetic variation between two black people than there is between a black person and a white person. Then they tell us black people have a worse kind of breast cancer and get more fibroid. And white folk get cystic fibrosis and osteoporosis. So what's the deal, is race an invention or not?Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Racism's Sayings By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: They tell us race is an invention, that there is no genetic variation between two

Racism does not diminish with brains, it's a disease, a sickness, it may incubate in ignorance but it doesn't necessarily disappear with the gaining of wisdom!Bryce Courtenay Racism's Sayings By Bryce Courtenay: Racism does not diminish with brains, it's a disease, a sickness, it may incubate in
I find that most people that zealously defend Darwin have not actually read Darwin; definitely not Darwin's second book, The Descent of Man.A.E. Samaan Racism's Sayings By A.E. Samaan: I find that most people that zealously defend Darwin have not actually read Darwin; definitely
The truth doesn't matter because ideology isn't about truth or accuracy. Rather, its purpose is to support and perpetuate the status quo by making it appear normal and legitimate... And when someone dares to challenge that comforting reality, it's easy to confuse the bearer of bad news with the bad news itself. When people of color call attention to the divisions caused by white privilege, for example, they're often accused of creating those divisions, as if racism isn't a problem unless you talk about it.Allan G. Johnson Racism's Sayings By Allan G. Johnson: The truth doesn't matter because ideology isn't about truth or accuracy. Rather, its purpose is
Racism is unacceptable in the real world, and it's unacceptable online.FKA Twigs Racism's Sayings By FKA Twigs: Racism is unacceptable in the real world, and it's unacceptable online.

May 20, '95 - Mississippi calls. She says, "All my working life I have done things to help black people. I can drive into the black part of town where no white person would dare to go. I have nothing to fear. They say, 'Hi there, Mizz Mississippi.' I still call them niggers, but only because of the way they act. I'd have an affair with Johnnie Cochran in a minute." Once she said to me, "I don't see why I should have to feel guilty about the Holocaust. It's not my fault." I hadn't been talking or thinking about the Holocaust, and hadn't told anyone to feel guilty. Her remark came out of nowhere. We were in a diner, about to have a sandwich and suddenly the moment was explosive. Simply being a Jew arouses a peculiar expectation mixed with resentment, even in a highly intelligent woman. Amazing to me is that she doesn't do much but watch television, drink beer, and smoke Marlboros, and yet seethes with dark thoughts and tumultuous feeling.Leonard Michaels Racism's Sayings By Leonard Michaels: May 20, '95 - Mississippi calls. She says, "All my working life I have done
The new racism: Racism without 'racists.' Today, racial segregation and division often result from habits, policies, and institutions that are not explicitly designed to discriminate. Contrary to popular belief, discrimination or segregation do not require animus. They thrive even in the absence of prejudice or ill will. It's common to have racism without racists.Eduardo Bonilla-Silva Racism's Sayings By Eduardo Bonilla-Silva: The new racism: Racism without 'racists.' Today, racial segregation and division often result from habits,
Our current politics tell you that should you fall victim to such an assault and lose your body, it must somehow be your fault. Trayvon Martin's hoodie got him killed. Jordan Davis's loud music did the same.Ta-Nehisi Coates Racism's Sayings By Ta-Nehisi Coates: Our current politics tell you that should you fall victim to such an assault and

If everybody in the world despises you and hates you, sees your features as ugly and simian, makes jokes about your ways of talking, calls you stupid and beneath contempt; if you have no history, no heroes, and no future where a hero might lead, then you might begin to hate yourself.... And then one hot summer's night you just erupt and go burning and shooting and nobody seems to know why.Walter Mosley Racism's Sayings By Walter Mosley: If everybody in the world despises you and hates you, sees your features as ugly
Many humans make the mistake of fighting for race when it's the species driving our genes. And there is only one weapon to fight for species: the brain.Anthony Marais Racism's Sayings By Anthony Marais: Many humans make the mistake of fighting for race when it's the species driving our
Social justice has to do with issues such as poverty, inequality, war, racism, sexism, abortion, and lack of concern for ecology because what lies at the root at each of these is not so much someone's private sin but rather a huge, blind system that is inherently unfair.Ronald Rolheiser Racism's Sayings By Ronald Rolheiser: Social justice has to do with issues such as poverty, inequality, war, racism, sexism, abortion,

One would never defeat one's circumstances by working and saving one's pennies; one would never, by working, acquire that many pennies, and, besides, the social treatment accorded even the most successful Negroes proved that one needed, in order to be free, something more than a bank account. One needed a handle, a lever, a means of inspiring fear. It was absolutely clear that the police would whip you and take you in as long as they could get away with it, and that everyone else - housewives, taxi-drivers, elevator boys, dishwashers, bartenders, lawyers, judges, doctors, and grocers - would never, by the operation of any generous human feeling, cease to use you as an outlet for his frustrations and hostilities.James Baldwin Racism's Sayings By James Baldwin: One would never defeat one's circumstances by working and saving one's pennies; one would never,
I think what I came through is great, but my son can take it to another level, not having to fight racism. His mother's a Norwegian and I'm mixed up four or five times, so he can face the world.James Brown Racism's Sayings By James Brown: I think what I came through is great, but my son can take it to
So many New Zealanders don't seem to see themselves as New Zealanders. They see themselves as either Maori or European New Zealanders, and these are the principle ethnicity boxes on most forms you fill in. It seems to make no difference that the European and Maori blood lines are so mixed now as to be inseparable. If you can prove any Maori blood then you are entitled to a cut of the Treaty payouts, special voting rights and increased rights to certain natural resources. There's even a Maori political party which, in its very existence, is surely an indictment on the depth of racism through all levels of society. Is it any surprise that there is resentment and racism in parts of the community towards Maori?Alex Richards Racism's Sayings By Alex Richards: So many New Zealanders don't seem to see themselves as New Zealanders. They see themselves
It's easy to pretend 'to be fierce and fearless because living your truth takes real courage. Real fearless and fierce women admit mistakes and they work to correct them. We stand up and we use our voices for things other than self promotion. We don't stand by and let racism and sexism and homophobia run rapid on our watch. Real fearless and fierce women complement other women and we recognize and embrace that their shine in no way diminishes our light and that it actually makes our light shine brighter.Gabrielle Union Racism's Sayings By Gabrielle Union: It's easy to pretend 'to be fierce and fearless because living your truth takes real

Then too, you're constantly being bumped against by those of poor vision. Or again, you doubt if you really exist. You wonder whether you aren't simply a phantom in other people's minds.

Every Republican's voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they're proposing. Romney wants to let the - he said in the first 100 days he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules - unchain Wall Street.

We've been brainwashed into believing that it's a sin to discriminate. But discrimination doesn't mean racism; it means telling unlike things apart. Iowa grandpas and nine-year-old girls from Ohio are simply not looking to visit 'a painful chastisement upon the Western infidels.Bill Maher Racism's Sayings By Bill Maher: We've been brainwashed into believing that it's a sin to discriminate. But discrimination doesn't mean
Vatican's secretly composed message to all of Germany's Catholics. On Palm Sunday, 1937, the letter had been read by every priest, bishop, and cardinal across Germany to their congregations and three hundred thousand copies had been disseminated. Drafted by Munich's Cardinal von Faulhaber and Pope Pius XI, it told German Catholics in carefully veiled terms that National Socialism was an evil religion based on racism that stood contrary to the church's teachings and every man's right to equality. It made reference to "an insane and arrogant prophet" without naming Hitler.Adam Makos Racism's Sayings By Adam Makos: Vatican's secretly composed message to all of Germany's Catholics. On Palm Sunday, 1937, the letter
It's because of my grandfather that I became a Young Avenger. But it's hard sometimes, to be a black kid carrying a name like "Patriot". I remember talking to Captain America about before he died, and he explained what Patriotism meant to him...
It wasn't about blindly supporting your government. It was about knowing what your country could be, what it should be... And trying to lead it there through your example. And holding it accountable when it failed. I remember he said: "There's noting patriotic about corruption or cover-ups... or defending them. But exposing them, well, that takes a hero.

Where the really sincere white people have got to do their 'proving' of themselves is not among the black victims, but out on the battle lines of where America's racism really is - and that's in their own home communities.Malcolm X Racism's Sayings By Malcolm X: Where the really sincere white people have got to do their 'proving' of themselves is
Car radios blared in the night, generally pitting a gang in favor of Neil Young's "Southern Man," which chastised the South for its flagrant racism, against those who preferred Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama," which chastised Neil Young for chastising the South and which praised the blatantly racist Alabama governor George Wallace.Brent Hendricks Racism's Sayings By Brent Hendricks: Car radios blared in the night, generally pitting a gang in favor of Neil Young's
There's such a big difference between being dead and alive, I told myself, the greatest gift that anyone can give anyone else is life. And the greatest sin a person can do to another is to take away that life. Next to that, all the rules and religions in the world are secondary; mere words and beliefs that people choose to believe and kill and hate by. My life won't be lived that way, and neither, I hope, will my children's.James McBride Racism's Sayings By James McBride: There's such a big difference between being dead and alive, I told myself, the greatest
A delegate shout out from the floor: "Peonage, Anti-Lynch Bill, poll tax, these are our issues. They are the most controversial issues in American life, and some of us will have to die for them! Yes, we want to join with the CIO! We cannot stop for controversy!" And there in the faces of my people I saw strength. There with the whites in the audience I saw the positive forces of civilization and the best guarantee of America's future.Ralph Ellison Racism's Sayings By Ralph Ellison: A delegate shout out from the floor: "Peonage, Anti-Lynch Bill, poll tax, these are our
In these downbeat times, we need as much hope and courage as we do vision and analysis; we must accent the best of each other even as we point out the vicious effects of our racial divide and pernicious consequences of our maldistribution of wealth and power. We simply cannot enter the twenty-first century at each other's throats, even as we acknowledge the weighty forces of racism, patriarchy, economic inequality, homophobia, and ecological abuse on our necks. We are at a crucial crossroad in the history of this nation
and we either hang together by combating these forces that divide and degrade us or we hang separately. Do we have the intelligence, humor, imagination, courage, tolerance, love, respect, and will to meet the challenge? Time will tell. None of us alone can save the nation or world. But each of us can make a positive difference if we commit ourselves to do so.

Your decision to place your law enforcement resources in these communities is racism, but nobody has called people out on this. The law itself is not racist. But people's decision about where we're going to place our efforts, who we're going to prosecute, who we're not going to prosecute, is racism. And nobody's calling them on it.Carl Hart Racism's Sayings By Carl Hart: Your decision to place your law enforcement resources in these communities is racism, but nobody
These days, especially when cartoons deal with such matters as sex, sexism, sexual orientation, race, racism, religion, and religious fundamentalism, they can evoke primal responses. When that happens, while the viewer may denounce the cartoon, the irony here, as was the case with David Levine, is that it is precisely because the caricature has artistic depth and merit that the outrage is so keenly felt. The more powerful the caricature, the more outraged the protest.Victor S. Navasky Racism's Sayings By Victor S. Navasky: These days, especially when cartoons deal with such matters as sex, sexism, sexual orientation, race,
No, there is plenty wrong with Negroes. They have no society. They're robots, automatons. No minds of their own. I hate to say that about us, but it's the truth.

They called me an Indian pig. Oh, and they called me a prairie n*****. Pretty colorful, enit?"

"I suppose."

"That one pissed me off, though. I ain't no prairie Indian. I'm from a salmon tribe, man. If they were going to insult me, they should've called me salmon n*****."

"I'm surprised you can laugh about this."

"It's what Indians do."

"Weren't you afraid?"

"Yeah, I was afraid, but I'm afraid most of the time, you know? How would you feel if a white guy like you got dropped into the middle of a black neighborhood, like Compton, California, on a Saturday night?"

"I'd be very afraid."

"And that's exactly how I feel living in Seattle. Hell, I feel that way living in the United States. Indians are outnumbered, Officer. Those three guys scared me bad, but I've been scared for a long time.

For the young Turks, soon to assume power and build a nation-state on the ruins of the Ottoman Empire, Japan provided clear inspiration. These envious outside observers of Japan's progress did not see the extreme violence of the country's makeover. Nor did they notice the trends towards conformity, militarism and racism that were later to make Japan a ominously successful rival to Europe's imperialist nations- by 1942, Japan would occupy or dominate a broad swathe of the Asian mainland, from the Aleutian Islands in the north-east to the borders of India, after booting out almost all the European masters in between. For many Asians in the late nineteenth century, the proof of Japan's success lay in the extent to which it could demand equality with the West; and, here, the evidence was simply overwhelming for people who had tried to do the same and had failed miserably.Pankaj Mishra Racism's Sayings By Pankaj Mishra: For the young Turks, soon to assume power and build a nation-state on the ruins
What would be wicked would be to say, 'I will not give this person a job because he belongs to this category of people, and there's some kind of statistical tendency for this category of person to be different from that category...'

No amount of outer technology, no amount of computers and biotechnology and nanotechnology is going to stop the continuation of warfare and racism and environmental destruction.

Dear Non-Black American,
when you comes to the United States, you become black.No matter of your origin. Stop saying you are Liberian, Jamaican, Belizean, Nigerian,
South African or Ghanaian. White America doesn't care about all that bull, that's why on the work application it doesn't give you the option to say Ghanaian or Jamaican, it says "African American.

If I were a supervillain, I would end capitalism, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia ... but I guess that's a little too obvious and not villain-y enough.

Right now, I've got the weight of several worlds on my shoulders. My best friend is living in a cancer ward, and there's nothing I can do for him. The Serpents have hired the Jester to spark race riots with faked news stories, and I don't know how to smoke him out. My enemies are hiding all around, watching everything I do, and I can't find them. For the first time in months I find myself in the familiar, paralyzing grip of overwhelming depression.Mark Waid Racism's Sayings By Mark Waid: Right now, I've got the weight of several worlds on my shoulders.

If you look hard enough, you can find race issues and racism in everything. I know people who say, 'See, I don't play pool 'cuz that's where the white ball chase the black ball off the table.

I think there are universal principles that we should want to understand, but that are not necessarily good for us. We could recognise universal propensities which current cultures can't fully eradicate, which we would want to eradicate if we could. Let's say, a tendency for tribal violence. Or racism.Sam Harris Racism's Sayings By Sam Harris: I think there are universal principles that we should want to understand, but that are
A certain number of people have to live their lives outdoors between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., and a A certain number of people can only leave their homes between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. So basically, public life has to be lived in these shifts, in order for everyone to fit on the streets because there's just no more room for any more infrastructure, any more highways. So it polarizes the community into day people and night people, and it becomes sort of a metaphor for racism and classism.Chuck Palahniuk Racism's Sayings By Chuck Palahniuk: A certain number of people have to live their lives outdoors between 8 a.m. and
Words not only reflect a person's thoughts and beliefs, but, through their use, can shape a person's values, beliefs, and actions, making them prejudiced without them even realizing it. That means it's not just the case that actions speak louder than words. It's also true, in this society rife with institutionalized discrimination, that results speak louder than intent.DaShanne Stokes Racism's Sayings By DaShanne Stokes: Words not only reflect a person's thoughts and beliefs, but, through their use, can shape
I've been sexually assaulted, physically attacked, felt unsafe in my own house, and nearly killed myself because I'm transgender. Now I'm not saying that its the same struggle as racism. But what I will say is that if people are intentionally ignorant you can't fight them with words. Sometims you have to fight back. Or scream. And you know what. That's life. Despite the lies you may have been told no one won their rights by asking for them nicely. People fought for them. So ya I'm sorry if what I said may "offend" a few white people, but I'm going to fuking say it anyways.Adam Snowflake Racism's Sayings By Adam Snowflake: I've been sexually assaulted, physically attacked, felt unsafe in my own house, and nearly killed

In addition to its elements of adolescent titillation, the world of JA2 contains racism, sexism, xenophobia, government-sponsored torture, child labor, and extreme economic inequality. And yet it's difficult to say what the game's overall stance is on these issues. JA2 is highly pluralistic, allowing you to play all sorts of characters from all sorts of backgrounds. That pluralism leads to a kind of moral relativism. While you can have a squad of friendly heroes who help each other as well as the downtrodden people of Arulco, you can also play as a squad of psychotic good ol' boys who ignore issues of social justice, seeking only to get a paycheck for putting a bullet in the queen's head.Anonymous Racism's Sayings By Anonymous: In addition to its elements of adolescent titillation, the world of JA2 contains racism, sexism,

A growing body of social science research reveals that atheists and non-religious people in general, are far from the unsavory beings many assume them to be. On basic questions of morality and human decency - issues such as governmental use of torture, the death penalty, punitive hitting of children, racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, environmental degradation or human rights - the irreligious tend to be more ethical than their religious peers, particularly compared with those who describe themselves as very religious.Gregory S.
