REDSKIN, n. A North American Indian, whose skin is not red -- at least not on the outside.
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914), "The Devil's Dictionary", 1911

The modern definition of "racist" is "someone who is winning an argument with a liberal.-- Peter Brimelow National Review (2/1/93)

At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace the savage races throughout the world.- Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, 2nd edition, New York, A L. Burt Co., 1874, p. 178

Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny, and that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. -- Martin Luther King, Jr., "I Have A Dream" speech, 1963

It is noteworthy that the process of human development steadily proceeds with those groups whose historic characteristic is not isolation but the commingling of blood. On the whole the Mongolian race has held itself apart, and in its isolation has bestowed no benefits upon our race at large. Behind the Himalayas a similar life secluded itself, and hence failed to impart any permanent impulse to the outside world. Even in Europe we find that with the Scandinavians and Slavs there was hardly any intermingling of blood, and, consequently having failed to develop a richer type, they have taken little part in the general development of human life.- Abraham Kuyper, Lectures on Calvinism p.22

Affirmative action is the attempt to deal with malignant racism by instituting benign racism. -- Elliott Larson

In a speech at the University of Florida, Dick Gregory said that he really enjoyed the Martin Luther King Jr stamp, just thinking about all those white bigots licking the backside of a black man. -- Frank Lynch

The issue of race could benefit from a period of benign neglect. -- Daniel P Moynihan

It could never be a correct justification that, because the whites oppressed us yesterday when they had power, that the blacks must oppress them today because they have power.--Robert Mugabe, 17 April 1980

We are all decendents of Adam, and we are all products of racial miscegenation. -- Lester Bowles Pearson 14th Canadian PM (1963-68) (Nobel 1957)

Today, racism is regarded as a crime if practiced by a majority -- but as an inalienable right if practiced by a minority. The notion that one's culture is superior to all others solely because it represents the traditions of one's ancestors, is regarded as chauvinism if claimed by a majority -- but as 'ethnic' pride if claimed by a minority. Resistance to change and progress is regarded as reactionary if demonstrated by a majority -- but retrogression to a Balkan village, to an Indian teepee or to the jungle is hailed if demonstrated by a minority. -- Ayn Rand, The Age of Envy

My first American ancestor, gentlemen, was an Indian--an early Indian. Your ancestors skinned him alive, and I am an orphan. All those Salem witches were ancestors of mine. Your people made it tropical for them... The first slave brought into New England out of Africa was an ancestor of mine -- for I am a mixed breed, an infinitely shaded and exquisite Mongrel. Mark Twain, speech, Plymouth Rock and the Pilgrims (1887)

Be nice to whites, they need you to rediscover their humanity.Desmond Tutu (1931-____)In NY "Times," 19 Oct 1984

In the long run, there is not much discrimination against superior talent. It constrains men to recognize it.- Carter G. Woodson (1875-1950) "Negro Makers of History," 1928.
