I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color.
Racism has never done this country any good, and it needs to be fought against, not put under new management for different groups.thomas sowell
Racism cannot be cured solely by attacking some of the results it produces, like discrimination in housing or in education.
Scientifically speaking, there is tribalism and group bias, but there cannot be any such thing as Racism. We are all one.Bill Nye
"Do you see law and order? There is nothing but disorder, and instead of law there is the illusion of security. It is an illusion because it is built on a long history of injustices: Racism, criminality, and the genocide of millions. Many people say it is insane to resist the system, but actually, it is insane not to."mumia abu-jamal
A lot of different races and nationalities play football, so it is a good way to try and stop Racism.thierry henry
Racism? But isn't it onlya form of misanthropy?
Racism is a system of power and in the absence of power you cannot be considered a racist.sister souljah
Racism, xenophobia and unfair discrimination have spawned slavery, when human beings have bought and sold and owned and branded fellow human beings as if they were so many beasts of burden.
I guess the clarification I should make here is that Japan is as potentially racist as anywhere else, but for a developed country, the legal and social protections and recourses afforded to people of differences are lacking comparatively. Racial discrimination is still not illegal in Japan, and this is something the Japanese government promised to fix when it signed the UN Convention on it in 1995. In short, Japan is not an outlier in terms of Racism, but it is in terms of protections against it.debito arudou
In order to get beyond Racism, we must first take account of race. There is no other way. And in order to treat some persons equally, we must treat them differently.harry blackmun
It's like Kilroy only talking about Big Brother and there's no Racism allowed.russell brand
The Zionist regime has adopted measures to change population structure of the city of divine religions and cradle of peace. It has resorted to Racism and expansionist policies including expulsion of Palestinian people and construction of Jewish settlements and the separation wall. The regime has posed serious danger to everyday life of the Palestinians.gholam-ali haddad-adel
As we search as a nation for constructive ways to challenge Racism and white supremacy, it is absolutely essential that progressive female voices gain a hearing.bell hooks
The 'black armband' view of our history reflects a belief that most Australian history since 1788 has been little more than a disgraceful story of imperialism, exploitation, Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination. I take a very different view. I believe that the balance sheet of our history is one of heroic achievement and that we have achieved much more as a nation of which we can be proud of than which we should be ashamed.john howard
Most liberal-minded folk would like to think that since they are not hostile to people of a different race, Racism is a disease of the uneducated, unenlightened and socially backward - football hooligans, British National Party supporters, policemen. You could call this the Bad Guy Theory. But the Bad Guy Theory does not explain why Indian-heritage children do nearly twice as well as Pakistani-heritage children at GCSE.trevor phillips
My definition of "good" is that you understand that this is a question of power, that you be willing to give up some power, that you be willing to give up some resources, that you be willing to pay black people reparations for our years and years of service in this country, that you be willing to go home and tell your white mother and father about white Racism and how it affects and kills black people in our communities. That's my definition of good white people and I haven't met any like that.sister souljah
To reach someone's soul, you have to have a social relationship. … You can't just sit down in the cold world of legal jargon and settle the nuances of Racism and what it does to the social and cultural fabric. … The rich in America are so isolated that for Bobby to come into this intimate experience with its victims was a revelation. You could see in his face the anguish and consternation. It played away at his conscience and soul.harry belafonte
Solving the population problem is not going to solve the problems of Racism… of sexism… of religious intolerance… of war… of gross economic inequality But if you don’t solve the population problem, you’re not going to solve any of those problems. Whatever problem you’re interested in, you’re not going to solve it unless you also solve the population problem. Whatever your cause, it’s a lost cause without population control.paul r. ehrlich
The black people’s struggle has vanquished Racism. It was God who created colour. Today Obama, a son of Kenya, a son of Africa, has made it in the United States of America.muammar gaddafi
[T]here is now a practical way to fulfill all the dreams of the movement of the early sixties and seventies. There's a practical practical method to end poverty, Racism, sexism, imperialsim. ... I would cross the planet on my hands and knees to touch his toes.maharaji (prem rawat)
The drug war has nothing to do with making communities livable or creating a decent future for black kids. On the contrary, prohibition is directly responsible for the power of crack dealers to terrorize whole neighborhoods. And every cent spent on the cops, investigators, bureaucrats, courts, jails, weapons, and tests required to feed the drug-war machine is a cent not spent on reversing the social policies that have destroyed the cities, nourished Racism, and laid the groundwork for crack culture.ellen willis
If you do not understand white supremacy (Racism) what it is and how it works everything else you know will only confuse you.
Our love of lockstep is our greatest curse, the source of all that bedevils us. It is the source of homophobia, xenophobia, Racism, sexism, terrorism, bigotry of every variety and hue, because it tells us there is one right way to do things, to look, to behave, to feel, when the only right way is to feel your heart hammering inside you and to listen to what its timpani is saying.Anna Quindlen
Homophobia is like Racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood. This sets the stage for further repression and violence that spread all too easily to victimize the next minority group.
