You don’t fight racism with racism. You fight racism with unity. Fred Hampton, Black Panthers
We’re going to fight racism not with racism, but we’re going to fight with solidarity. We say we’re not going to fight capitalism with black capitalism, but we’re going to fight it with socialism. Fred Hampton
I believe that there is a racist component to the death penalty. Ronald Hampton, executive director US National Black Police Association
I watched racism manifest itself in the way service was provided for white people in rich areas – it was very different than the way police service was provided for black people or poor people. Ronald Hampton, executive director US National Black Police Association
Unfortunately, the people of Louisiana are not racists. Dan Quayle
The Anti-Semite doesn’t know me, but he hates me. Actually, he hated me even before I was born. Help us fight it. Help us disarm it. For hatred is dangerous. Hatred is contagious. He or she who hates Jews, hates all minorities. All those who are different. He or she who hates Jews will end up hating everybody. And then himself. Elie Wiesel, United Nations Anti-Semitism conference
The real game is the poverty-stricken situation of Aboriginal people. The lack of courage on the part of this government to say sorry. The determination of a part of minority section in Australian society to accept aboriginal people and the reality of history. That’s the real game. And the next part is to bloody well do something about it. Charles Perkins, Aboriginal leader
We shall drive them [the savages] with the beasts of the forests into the stony mountains, and the country will ultimately be free of blot or mixture. Thomas Jefferson, cited Noam Chomsky, lecture Boston University, ‘American Imperialism’, Youtube 1.51.53
Indisputably, in my view, ‘breeding out the colour’ was policy, in that it was a systematic course of action endorsed and pursued by those charged with authority over Aboriginal affairs. However, it was policy initiated not by parliament or minister but by senior members of the bureaucracy. Russell McGregor, Breed Out the Colour
Hollywood is run by Jews. It is owned by Jews, and they should have a greater sensitivity. They should have greater sensitivity about the issue of people who are suffering because they’ve [been] exploited. We have seen the Nigger, we've seen the Greaseball, we have seen the Chink, the slit-eyed dangerous Jap. We have seen the wily Filipino. We’ve seen everything, but we never saw the Kike, because they know perfectly well that is where you draw the wagons around. Marlon Brando, interview Larry King Live April 1996
The blood is on so many hands that history will weep in the telling. Roger Ebert, cited Life Itself, 2014
It is true that diseases introduced by convicts and settlers – smallpox, typhoid, tuberculosis, diphtheria, whooping cough, influenza, pneumonia, measles and venereal disease – seriously depleted Aboriginal numbers. But it is to the genocidal impulses and actions of the settlers that we must turn for evidence of Australia’s treatment of the Aboriginal peoples.
… We know something about the physical killings, particularly in the latter half of the last and the early part of this century. The first white settlers came to Tasmania in 1803, and by 1806 the serious killing began. In retaliation for the spearing of livestock, Aboriginal children were abducted for use in forced labour, women were raped and tortured and given poisoned flour, and the men were shot. They were systematically disposed of in ones, twos and threes, or in dozens, rather than in one systematic massacre. Professor Colin Tatz, Genocide in Australia AIATSIS Research Discussion Paper 8
You see our whole history had been a history of racism. It was underlined always in Australia society ... The Immigration Restriction Act really meant that all the non-Europeans were sent home ... The Dictation Test was only repealed in 1958. Franca Arena, Australian politician & activist
Intolerance of groups is often, strangely enough, exhibited more strongly against small differences than against fundamental ones. Sigmund Freud
The story of my country has been and remains an epic cover-up ... There have been almost one hundred Aboriginal deaths in police custody in recent years ... Australia’s imprisonment of black people is the highest in the world ... Deaths of this kind have been going on for two hundred years. John Pilger, Secrets
Today it is estimated that more than half a million Aborigines died as the direct result of the British invasion. ibid.
[Albert] Namatjira was deemed fit even to meet the Queen. Being an honorary white man, Namatjira could buy alcohol which was banned to his people. In 1959 the artist who had become fashionable in the art galleries was convicted of the crime of supplying liquor to an Aborigine. The dreadful irony of this didn’t stop them putting him away for three months in Alice Springs Jail. He died shortly afterwards a broken man. Thousands of Aborigines have died and are still dying in this way. Namatjira was one of the few we noticed. John Pilger, The Last Dream: Heroes Unsung
Just one of the disgraces that has given Australia the distinction of being the only developed country whose government has been condemned as racist by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. John Pilger
Black Australians may well have the highest prison population in the world. Convictions related to homelessness, alcoholism and unemployment have meant in effect that to be black is a crime. John Pilger, The Secret Country – The First Australians Fight Back
Aborigines were commonly regarded as less than human. They were not citizens. They had no vote. Unlike the sheep they were not even counted. When I was at school history books either ignored them or compared them to half-wild dogs, animals of prey who devour their own species. While the Olympics provided a facade of triumph and civilisation, aboriginal families were being torn apart by deliberate government policies that led to a former slavery ... Most died in their thirties and forties. Their tragedy represents the epic suffering of the Aboriginal people whose living conditions are so bad that their life expectancy is among the lowest on Earth, worse than much of Africa. John Pilger, Welcome to Australia, ITV 1999
I remember the boys dressed in army surplus, the girls in hessian, their silhouettes framed in beach shanties, staring across an abyss. You were not meant to talk about them. They were not counted in the census, unlike the sheep, and anyway were dirty and feckless and dying off.
You were not meant to disturb the surface of our great southern idyll, sun-kissed and God-blessed, in circumstances that might raise questions of race. At high school, I studied a celebrated historian, Russel Ward, who wrote: ‘We are civilized and they are not’. They were the first Australians. At least he mentioned them. Other text books simply left them out. John Pilger, Return to a Secret Country, article New Statesman
This Aboriginal man died three hours later. No police officer was prosecuted. John Pilger, Utopia ***** ITV 2013
The other Australia – a secret battleground where the first people of Australia fought the invading British. This was their land. ibid.
The equality of man, said Barton, was never intended to apply to those who weren’t British. And white skinned. ibid.
